Kate was admitted to the private Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, on Monday and the couple unveiled their newborn son for the world on Monday evening.
The royal couple left the hospital with the latest addition to their brood on Monday evening. Kate, as always, looked perennially polished in a red dress. Her husband, William, beamed as he stood by his wife's side.
However, one magazine has given the iconic photo of the royal couple with their newborn son quite the makeover. New Zealand's Woman's Day has seemingly Photoshopped the sweet family photo, making Kate and Wills look, well, nothing like themselves.
Seven Sharp host Hilary Barry took to Twitter to share a side-by-side snap of the original compared with the magazine cover - and Twitter was left in hysterics.
"They looked better before the Photoshop," wrote one baffled Twitter user, while another compared them to a photo of Ross from Friends after a spray tan.[ id="989330178571563008"]
After some early morning laughs over the magazine cover, our attention is firmly fixed on waiting patiently to find out what the royal tot is called - and we have gleaned a few snippets of information about the new baby from Prince William.
William joined his brother Prince Harry and Harry's fiancée Meghan Markle at an Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey. When asked how the little boy was doing, William responded: ‘very well, thanks’ and added that everyone is ‘in good form, luckily’.
He also said that the youngster's sleeping was going 'reasonably well so far', adding: 'he's behaving himself, which is good.’
The internet went wild when they found footage of Prince William seemingly hinting at the name. William was overheard saying: 'Jerry is a strong name', and then, when asked by Australian High Commissioner, Alexander Downer, whether he'd considered the name Alexander, he replied: "Well, it's funny you should say that. It's a good name.' Naturally, the bookies went wild.
Kensington Palace shared this adorable photo of the new parents cradling their son, with the caption: "Welcome to the family. Thank you everyone for your kind wishes."
Kensington Palace tweeted:
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs.
The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz.
The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.
Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."
They also said,
"The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news."
Little George and Charlotte arrived with father William to meet their new brother. The adorable duo were dressed in their school uniforms as they arrived and waved to the crowds.
And it seems that journalist Emily Andrews, a royal correspondent on Lorraine, was right when she predicted Kate would give birth today. She said at the time: "Kate is due on St George’s Day which is the 23rd of April."
She also said: "She was late with George and Charlotte but I would imagine the baby will be arriving in the last week of April."
We'll keep you updated when we hear more.
