Prince William and his wife Catherine presented their newborn son to the world for the first time on July 23, Tuesday, a day later his birth. They emerged from St. Mary’s hospital, London giving the waiting media and the world their first glimpse of the future king. Drawing wild applause from well-wishers, they revealed the new face of the Prince of Cambridge though not, yet, his name.
“We’re still working on a name. So we’ll have that as soon as we can,” William told scores of reporters gathered outside St. Mary’s Hospital as he cradled the child.
The young family’s debut public appearance was the moment the world’s media had been waiting for, but the royal couple showed no sign of stress in the face of dozens of flashing cameras. Instead the couple, both 31, laughed and joked with reporters as they took turns holding their baby son, who appeared to doze through it all.
“He’s got her looks, thankfully,” William said, referring to his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, as the newborn prince squirmed in his arms and poked a tiny hand out of his swaddling blanket, almost like a little royal wave.
