Stop Press! Stop Press!

Special moment: Prince William and Kate waved and smiled broadly to the waiting cameras as they held their prince on the steps of the private Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London

A prince is here!

Magic: With the world watching, Kate and William hold their prince outside the Lindo Wing in a genuinely historic moment for Britain

George Alexander Louis was born on Monday 22nd July, weighing a very respectable 8 pounds and 6 ounces.

New life: The baby was crying in his car seat as his father took him to their waiting car yesterday evening

Kate and William presented His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge to cheering crowds outside the hospital.

Emotional: The new mother looked delighted as she looked down at her first child while her husband waved to the excited crowds

But the big news here is that Kate Middleton made no efforts to hide her post-baby bump. With such ridiculous amounts of pressure on celebrities to get back to shape the moment they've given birth, I think Kate deserves a humongous cheer for standing up for the mother's of new-born babies everywhere.

Protective: The baby was wrapped in a white shawl - Kate held her new son closely to her chest as she waved to the impressive crowd

The magazine OK! has been absolutely slated for their quick-off-the-press article discussing Kate's training program...and rightly so. These early days with your very own scrummy bundle are utterly precious and should be fiercely guarded. 

Gentle: The trio take their first steps together into the outside world together as the prince starts his life

It's looks to me as though this pair will go a long, long way.

Hooray for Britain!!
