Earlier, both sets of grandparents popped over to the Lindo wing for a visit. Carole Middleton gushed about her grandson, calling him “absolutely beautiful,” and telling the press that the first cuddle was amazing, according to the BBC‘s Peter Hunt.
The Prince of Wales was equally as delighted about his son’s new child, hinting to the press that all three would be out soon enough.
“Wait and see, you’ll see in a minute,” Prince Charles told reporters when he left.
Hospital staff joined the crowds behind barricades before William and Catherine came out to answer a few questions. Catherine was visibly moved by the outpouring of excitement. Her Royal Highness appeared to fight back tears as people cheered on her new family.
William told members of the press that he and his wife were “still working on a name,” while he held his son.
“He’s got her looks,” William said endearingly, and noted that he had “a good pair of lungs on him, that’s for sure.”
“I’ll remind him of his tardiness when he gets older,” William joked, acknowledging that Baby Cambridge was a wee bit overdue.
Afterwards, Will snapped his son in the carseat then hopped in the driver’s seat of a Range Rover en route to Kensington Palace.
