Niagara Falls Lit Up In Blue In Honor of New Prince
In celebration of the birth of the new prince born to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan early Monday morning, Niagara Falls will be lit up in blue Monday night. Harry and Meghan have not yet decided on a name for the baby prince.
It's a long-time tradition to honor a royal visit or royal birth. In July of 2013, Niagara Falls was bathed in blue lights to mark the birth of Prince George, the son of Prince Charles and Duchess Catherine. The falls were lit in pink lights to honor the birth of Princess Charlotte in May, 2015. And it was blue lights again in April of last year when Prince Louis was born.
All special illumination requests are reviewed and approved by the Niagara Falls Illumination Board, which has financed and operated the lighting of Niagara Falls since 1925.
