The Prince of Cambridge just met the world, and now he is meeting his extended family members!
After leaving the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London today, Prince William and Kate Middleton headed to Kensington Palace where their royal baby boy reportedly met Kate's sis and his aunt Pippa Middleton. Pippa's boyfriend Nico Jackson was also reportedly there to meet the newborn bundle of joy, according to the Daily Mail.
Other family members were also allegedly at the palace tonight to meet the royal baby, who left the hospital with his parents at around 7:30 p.m. local time. The new family didn't even need a driver. Will got behind the wheel and drove Kate and their baby off to the palace himself.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge introduced their first child to the world earlier today after giving birth on Monday, July 22. "It was very emotional, it is such a special time," Kate told reporters outside the hospital. Will added, "He's got her looks, thankfully." The new family will reportedly stay at Kensington Palace for two weeks while Will is on paternity leave.
Pippa certainly isn't the first Middleton family member to meet the royal baby. Earlier today, Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton stopped by St. Mary's to see their daughter and new grandson. "They're both doing really well," Carole said of the Duke and Duchess. "We're so thrilled."
And not long after Carole and Michael, Will's dad Prince Charles and his wife Camilla visited their grandchild. "Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone's life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months," Charles said Monday, adding, "So I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future."
Prince Harry will meet his nephew sometime in the upcoming days. He's currently busy working with his Apache Air Corps squadron at the Royal Air Force base in Wattisham, England, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
"He's got a good pair of lungs on him that's for sure," Will said today of his little prince. "He's a good boy, he's quite heavy."
