First Look at England's Royal Baby

Kate and William bring home newborn prince, no name revealed yet.
LONDON, UK (CNN) - The public got its first view of the new heir to the British throne Tuesday as Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, left a London hospital hospital with their newborn son.

"It's very special," said William, who emerged from St. Mary's Hospital with his wife a day after the birth of their still-unnamed boy. Catherine held the child, wrapped in a cream-colored blanket, as the couple waved to well-wishers outside.

The couple is "still working on a name," William said, "so we'll have that as soon as we can." But he added, "He's got her looks, thankfully."

The prince has already changed his first diaper, the couple told reporters.

"It's very emotional. It's such a special time," Catherine said.

The couple left the hospital Tuesday evening with William carrying the boy out in a car seat and installing him in the back of a black SUV for the trip to their residence at Kensington Palace. They walked out down the same steps where Diana, Princess of Wales, and Prince Charles gave the world its first sighting of Prince William 31 years ago.

Shortly before the couple left the hospital, Charles stopped by for a brief visit with his first grandchild, accompanied by his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. He told reporters it was "marvelous."

And Catherine's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, visited earlier, with Carole Middleton telling reporters the royal baby is "absolutely beautiful."

She said both mother and baby are doing "really well" and that she and her husband were "so thrilled" at being grandparents.
