Prince William and his wife Kate gave the world its first glimpse of their new baby on Tuesday when they left hospital with the boy who is third in line to the British throne.
To huge cheers from well-wishers and hospital staff, the beaming couple waved and took turns to hold their son, wrapped tightly in a white blanket with only the top of his head visible.
“We are still working on a name, so we will have that as soon as we can,” William told reporters, adding that he could not be happier. “He’s got her looks, thankfully.”
Kate, wearing a pale blue dress with white polka dots, said they were both feeling “very emotional”. “It’s such a special time. Any parent ... will know what this feeling is like,” she said before William drove the young family away in a Range Rover.
