Prince William and his wife Kate were on Sunday spending their first day back at home with their baby daughter as Britain eagerly awaited a name for the new royal princess.
The couple, their firstborn Prince George and the new arrival were expected to spend the next few days relaxing together at their Kensington Palace apartment, a day after Kate gave birth to the baby girl, who is fourth in line to the throne.
A beaming Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left hospital on Saturday carrying their newborn.
They were cheered by hundreds of well-wishers who had gathered outside St Mary`s Hospital in central London along with the massed ranks of photographers from the world`s media.
The sleeping baby was wrapped in a woollen shawl as a relaxed-looking Kate, 33, cradled her in her arms in front of the hospital`s private Lindo Wing.
William, 32, then drove his wife and daughter the short distance to Kensington Palace after carrying the baby out in a car seat.
First visitors were likely to include Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton and William’s father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.
William’s grandparents Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip will also be eager for a first glimpse of their fifth great-grandchild. Britain is eagerly awaiting the announcement of the new princess’s Christian names.
Charlotte became the new favourite with the bookmakers on Sunday, overtaking long-time favourite Alice.
Charlotte was trading at odds of around 3/1, followed by Alice at 4/1, Victoria at 5/1, Olivia at 6/1 and Elizabeth at 7/1.
