Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II arrived at Kensington Palace to see her new great-grandson, who has spent a first night at home with his parents, Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
She made the short trip from Buckingham Palace to meet the two-day-old Prince of Cambridge and stayed for half an hour. Prince Philip is still recovering from abdominal surgery so he is not at the moment.
At a Buckingham Palace reception, the queen said she was “thrilled” by the new arrival.”
A guest at the event for the queen’s Award for Enterprise said the monarch called the baby a “big boy” and noted that “the first born is very special.”
William’s brother, Prince Harry, met the baby, Kensington Palace said.
Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, has also been to visit her nephew. Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall visited at St. Mary’s Hospital on Tuesday, as did Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton.
Baby’s first royal wave is his little hand peeking above a white crocheted wrap, blanketed. He slept through his unveiling public appearance.
However William assured the media he had “a good pair of lungs on him.”
The new family is expected to spend time quietly at Kensington Palace, their London home. The name of the royal baby is not confirmed yet as determined a name; William and Kate will soon wish a photographer for the baby’s first official portrait.
William has two weeks’ paternity leave from his job as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue.
William told, “We are still working on a name, so we will have that as soon as we can.”
