SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – Following Monday’s birth of a baby boy to Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, a British bar in San Jose is preparing to celebrate this weekend.

Britannia Arms, located at 5027 Almaden Expressway, will be hosting a “baby shower” to mark the birth of the newest member of the British royal family, bar manager Michael North said.

The official time and date of the event, which have not yet been set, will be posted on the bar’s Facebook page and disseminated through Twitter.

North said there is local interest in the birth, although not as much as there was in the royal wedding.

“It’s not quite as exciting as when they got married,” North said.

“(The birth) is not the kind of thing people will sit and wait for.”

North said there will be cake and champagne at the celebration this weekend. His wife will be making the cake, he said.
