Royal baby mania has not subsided, simply because the future monarch has been born.

A number of specials about the birth are still set to air today and through the week.

Tonight ABC News will air a special “20/20″ at 10 PM, with Barbara Walters anchoring. “The Royal Baby: Heir to the Throne” will also feature Lara Spencer, Amy Robach and London correspondent Lama Hasan.

The BBC is planning stateside coverage as well. BBC World News, the 24-hour cable news channel operated by the BBC, will air a documentary called “Born To Be King” a number of times today, anchored by Sophie Raworth. The BBC special will air at 8:30, 14:30 and 20:30 (Greenwich mean Time). There is also special coverage on bbc.com/royalbaby.

Last night NBC aired a special hour-long  “Dateline,” anchored by Natalie Morales.

It is worth noting that so far CBS News has avoided any special baby coverage, instead choosing to cover it as part of its normal news programming.
