This afternoon Prince William left hospital briefly before returning with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who are said to be delighted with their new baby brother.
Their Royal Highnesses thanked "all staff at the hospital for the care and treatment they have received" via their official Twitter account, as well as thanking "everyone" for their warm wishes.
The proud new parents posed for the press outside the Lindo Wing, waving to onlookers and the world's media who have been assembling for days in anticipation of the Royal birth.
Oh, and my money's on this little Prince being named Arthur. You heard it here first!
