After an eventful 24 hours, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s hospital today with their newborn son. Describing their first day as parents as “emotional”, William and Kate confirmed that they are still working on a name for the young Prince. At 8 pounds 6 ounces, William said that the baby is “quite heavy” and has a great set of lungs.
Before leaving the hospital, baby Cambridge was introduced to some very special visitors: Michael and Carole Middleton, who were the first visitors to arrive, and Prince Charles and Camilla, who flew in by helicopter after completing their royal engagements in Yorkshire. Prince Charles, awash in the glow of becoming a first-time grandfather, described his grandson as “marvelous”. He then teased the reporters who waited almost three weeks in the hot summer sun for this moment by saying, “You’ll see in a minute.” A short time later, William and Kate emerged to introduce their son to the world.
Welcome baby Cambridge!
