St.Mary's Hospital has given the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge a scroll to celebrate the birth of their first child, Prince George. The gift, which comes in a leather case is reminiscent to the one given to William's parents when he was born at the Lindo Wing of St.Mary's.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their baby are expected to leave hospital later this evening, Kensington Palace officials said.
The bulging bank of photographers outside the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital burst into action as Prince Charles stepped out of his car.
Hospital staff gathered behind barriers by the wing's doors also stretched to take pictures on their mobile phones.
Prince Charles said his new grandson is "marvellous."
"You'll see him in a minute," he told reporters.
The crowds assembled outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington gave a loud cheer to welcome Prince Charles as he stepped out of his car with wife Camilla to visit his one-day-old grandson.
The couple have a baby car seat ready to take the infant home.
In a statement issued on their behalf, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have thanked hospital staff that helped care for them during the birth of their son.
– The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received.
We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone - staff, patients and visitors - for their understanding during this time.
Prince Charles has entered the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital where his first grandchild was born yesterday.
His wife, Camilla, accompanied him.
"Have you had a long wait?" Charles asked reporters.
The new Prince of Cambridge is the latest addition to the house of Windsor. George V chose the Berkshire town as the family's name in 1917, because of its castle, which remains to this day the preferred weekend home of the Queen.
Sharon Thomas has been to Windsor to find out how they've been celebrating the birth of a future king.
A baby girl in Basildon has received a royal welcome, after she was born at exactly the same time as the Prince of Cambridge.
And - quite appropriately - she's been named Kate.
Mum Natia Kavelashvili - who gave birth at Basildon University Hospital yesterday - had never thought that she might share her big moment with the Duchess of Cambridge.
The mum of two, from Langdon Hills, Essex, said: "I was being prepared to have a caesarean earlier in the day, but there was an emergency so my caesarean was delayed for a while.
"It is strange to think that this meant I ended up having my baby at 4.24pm."
Hundreds of people have been queuing outside Buckingham Palace to see the easel displaying the details of the royal baby. The atmosphere remains jubilant, with many tourists saying they were delighted to be a part of such a momentous day in British history.
