Duke and Duchess present son
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge introduced their newborn son to the world on Tuesday.
Prince William’s wife Catherine Middleton gave birth to a baby boy at St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday.
The pair emerged on the steps of the medical facility Tuesday evening with the tot cradled in their arms. They were wearing matching light blue attire, with Catherine donned in a crepe de chine dress created by British designer Jenny Peckham for her first official public appearance with her child.
According to People magazine, the royal baby already appeared “to be waving to the crowd”.
Although speculation was rife that Prince William would possibly reveal the baby’s name on this occasion, the moniker remains a secret.
"We're still working on a name," he told reporters gathered outside the hospital.
William is madly in love with his new arrival and relishes parenthood thus far.
He sees the attributes his son has inherited from both mother and father.
"He's good a got pair of lungs that's for sure, he's a big boy,” William smiled.
"Her looks, thankfully. He has way more [hair] than me, thank God."
The Duchess is impressed by her husband’s proactivity.
Apparently William is already getting his hands dirty.
"He's done his first nappy [diaper]," Kate gushed.
Earlier in the day the couple issued a statement of thanks to their many supporters and caretakers.
The document also disclosed the new parents’ travelling agenda.
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will be discharged this evening from St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace,” the release read.
“Their Royal Highnesses would like to reiterate their thanks to the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received."
