2:25 p.m. – The couple came back outside and placed their son into a car seat before driving off with William driving. They are believed to be headed towards Kensington Palace.

2:21 p.m. – New parents Prince Williams and Kate the Dutchess of Cambridge showed their new baby to the world on the steps of St, Mary’s Hospital in London. Dressed in matching blue, Kate was carrying the boy through the doors but as she and William walked towads the crowd she handed the baby to her husband.

They took questions from reporters and fans gathered outside the private Lindo Wing of the hospital and said they are “still working on a name.”

“He’s got her looks, thankfully,” William said. “He’s got a good pair of lungs on him, that’s for sure.” William added: “He’s a big boy, he’s quite heavy,” and laughed when a reporter asked him about the baby’s hair.  “He’s got way more than me, thank God,” he said.

Crowds of onlookers gathered outside the St. Mary Hospital cheered as Charles and his wife, Camilla, arrived Tuesday at central London’s St. Mary’s Hospital. Earlier Tuesday, Kate’s parents — Michael and Carole Middleton — also paid a visit to their new grandchild.

 

 

Carole Middleton beamed and said the baby was “absolutely beautiful.”


After the excitement, fatigue and joy of childbirth — emotions shared with a nation — the young couple is expected to bring the prince home and start to care for him.

According to a tweet from  @Clarance House, the official residence of the new parents, “Mother, son and father are all doing well this morning.”

They also sent thanks to the hospital staff. “We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone — staff, patients and visitors — for their understanding during this time,” they said.

But the lad’s name — and his likeness — remain a royal mystery. And as the infant child begins a long journey expected to see him someday become a king, Brits — and indeed people from around the world — joined the royal family in celebration.

Kate and William may bring the baby home from St. Mary’s Hospital in London today or tomorrow and will probably show off their new son for the first time on the hospital steps according to CNN.

They are the same steps where Diana, Princess of Wales, and Prince Charles first shared their son, Prince William, 31 years ago. It could also be when they reveal the name of the 3rd in line to the British throne who was born yesterday at 4:24 p.m. and weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces. CNN  reports the baby was born naturally.
