The new Prince of Cambridge is introduced to the world

The new Prince of Cambridge was introduced to the world today.

The Duchess held her son first and the couple looked relaxed and smiled broadly as the world's media captured the moment.

The Royal baby's fingers clasped and unclasped in what looked almost like his first royal wave.

Speaking outside the hospital, William and Kate said they felt "very emotional".

ITV News' Royal Correspondent Tim Ewart reports:

Kate's first baby appearance invites Diana comparison

The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant as she presented her son to the world in a pale blue polka dot dress reminiscent of the pattern worn by Princess Diana on the day she left hospital with Prince William.

Kate stepped out of the Lindo Wing wearing a bespoke piece by Jenny Packham, a couturier who has become something of a household name thanks to the Duchess.

Observers were quick to draw parallels with the outfit worn by William's late mother when she posed on the same doorstep with her first-born son in a green spotted dress.

But where Diana appeared nervous and bewildered by the attention, a glowing Kate smiled broadly and spoke assuredly as she introduced her child to the world's press and the hordes of cheering well-wishers.
