What a royal cutie! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge presented the Prince of Cambridge on July 23, just one day after Kate gave birth — and we are so excited to finally know what the baby looks like!
The whole world has been anxious to see Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s baby for nine months, and the time has finally come! Kate and William presented their new baby boy on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital on July 23. We’re so happy for the adorable royal family! And we are seriously just gushing over the little Prince.
Kate Middleton & Prince William Present Royal Baby
As royal sources announced prior to the baby’s birth, Kate and William introduced their baby to the world on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital, as thousands of spectators and photographers looked on, excited to catch a glimpse of the baby boy. The royal baby was unveiled on July 23 as the new family left the hospital, one day after Kate gave birth.
Kate looked great — especially only one day after having a baby! — in a perfectly appropriate baby blue polka-dot dress, glowing while showing off her newborn. William definitely filled the role of supportive husband and doting father as he stood by her side in a matching baby blue button-down shirt.
William’s late mother Princess Diana also wore polka dots when she carried baby William out, so we’re thinking it could have been a tribute. She was dawning the beautiful sapphire ring that once belonged to Diana, as well.
Royal Couple Give First Interview As Parents
They both looked happier than ever to finally be parents to the little one! Even the adorable new baby, who was wrapped in a cream-colored baby, reached his hand out to give a royal wave! Kate handed their new baby, who doesn’t yet have a name, to a nervous Prince William. They then answered their first questions as new parents!
“He’s got a good pair of lungs! He’s a big boy, he’s quite heavy,” William joked while cradling the baby. “He’s got her looks, thankfully!” “He’s got more hair than me,” he added.
William stated that it has been a “very emotional” experience. The Duchess added in, “Any parent knows what this feeling feels like.”
“Luckily, he’s got his mom’s looks,” William added in with a laugh. “He’s got more hair than me!” He also added in that the new prince “got her looks, thankfully.”
“He’s done his first nappy [diaper],” Kate proudly said of her husband. She also said the birth “was very emotional. It is such a special time.”
“I’ll remind him of his tininess when he’s a bit older,” William added. “I know how long you’ve all been sat out here, hopefully the hospital and you guys can all get back to normal now and we can look after him.”
For those of you who are wondering about when the name will be revealed — it seems the royal couple hasn’t made a final choice just yet!
“We’re still working on a name,” Prince William said. “We’ll have that as soon as we can. It’s the first time we’ve seen him really, so we haven’t gotten a proper chance to catch up.”
Kate Middleton & Prince William Welcome Baby Boy
Kate delivered a healthy baby boy at 4:24 p.m. local time at July 22 in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, the same wing Princess Diana gave birth to William and Prince Harry! His Royal Highness the Prince weighed in at 8 pounds 6 ounces.
The prince’s gender, weight and time of birth were revealed on a wood and gold easel just inside the gates of Buckingham Palace as soon as he was born. It was only a matter of time before Kate and William presented their newborn on the steps of the hospital, as they were making their way out, Kensington Palace-bound.
We know Kate and William are so thrilled to finally have a little one in their lives, and we couldn’t be more excited to already know what the royal baby looks like!
After they leave the hospital, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace,” says an official statement from Kensington Palace, released at 6:10 p.m. local time on July 23.
“Their Royal Highnesses would like to reiterate their thanks to the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received,” the statement also reads.
