The first royal baby photos have emerged! With no reason to keep her under observation, Kate Middleton was discharged from the hospital to the excitement of the anxious crowd that was eagerly awaiting to see the newest member of the royal family. The much awaited moment finally arrived as Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge proudly stepped out of St Mary's Hospital.

The new parents were glowing and the immense happiness caused by the arrival of their baby boy could easily be read on their faces. Kate Middleton looked surprisingly well rested given the circumstances and wore an adorable bespoke polka dot dress (similar to the one Princess Diana wore when she was discharged from the same hospital after giving birth) made by Jenny Packham, one of her favorite British designers. William also looked sharp in a blue button down shirt paired with elegant dark pants.

The happy new mother described the experience as very emotional: "It's very emotional. It's a moment that any parent having just given birth will know what this feeling feels like." Prince William also reiterated the statement and gracefully acknowledged the media's effort from the last two days: "It's very special I will remind him of this time when he’s a bit older because I know how long you have all been sat out here, so hopefully the hospital and all you guys can go back to normal now and we can look after him."

The couple also took time to speak about their son: "He's got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure. He's a big boy – he's quite heavy", the proud father stated adding that “he’s got his mother’s looks; he was rather tardy and I’ll remind him of that later". He also took time to make a joke about the baby's hair: “He’s got way more than me, thank God.” The couple still hasn't disclosed the name of the new prince and stated that they are “still working” on it.

The graceful young couple issued another statement later in the day thanking everyone for the help they received:"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will be discharged this evening from St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace. Their Royal Highnesses would like to reiterate their thanks to the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received."
