First, we had to wait hours for the royal baby's birth, and once we learned it was a Prince, we had to wait a whole day to see the world's most famous newborn. Since the baby boy and his parents, William and Kate, made their first public appearance as a family of three, there are finally some photos of the beaming parents and their beautiful son. Here are some of the best photos of the royal baby, to hold you over while we wait for the next big reveal: his name.

The Moment We've Been Waiting For ...

Kate and the royal baby lead the way out of St. Mary's Hospital as the world gets its first look at the baby boy.

A Grand Entrance

When the family first exited the hospital, Kate was carrying her son, and looking absolutely gorgeous —especially considering she gave birth less than 24 hours ago!

She's Still Glowing

Like Father, Like Son

Speaking with press outside of the hospital, Prince William joked that his son "got way more hair than me, thank God!"

Blue for a Boy

William and Kate both wear baby blue as they exit the hospital, the perfect color for new parents of a boy.

A Familiar Pattern

Many people noticed that Kate's light blue dress had polka dots, reminiscent of the light green polka-dot dress worn by Princess Diana when she first debuted William to the world in 1982.
