World’s media get first glimpse of royal baby

| 23/07/2013

(CNS): The world got its first glimpse of the future British monarch when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left hospital with their new born son Tuesday, as ranks of media from all over the world waited at the doors. When the couple emerged from St Mary's Hospital in London for the first public appearance since the baby's birth yesterday afternoon, Prince William said the baby had his wife's good looks and more hair than he did. The duke cradled the child, who is third in line to the throne, on the same spot where he was introduced to the public 31 years ago, as he joked about reminding the baby of his "tardiness" when he was older. "We're still working on a name," he said.

The bookies' favourites for the name are George and James. The new parents have drawn up a shortlist but, given their son's destiny, they will be consulting members of the royal family. It took one week for William's name to be made public, and a month for Charles'.

Holding the baby during his first photo call, the Duchess of Cambridge said it was a "very emotional" and "special" time, saying, "Any parent must know what this feeling feels like."

The couple and their baby made their way home to Kensington Palace to settle in for their first night as a family. They will spend time together alone before the Duke goes back to work after two weeks statutory paternity leave.

    I hope this child emulates Diana and tries to help the needy rather than living a life of privilege
