LONDON, July 23, 2013 (AFP) – Britain’s Prince William and wife, Kate, emerged from hospital with their baby Tuesday evening and will return home to Kensington Palace.

Crowds of journalists and onlookers had camped outside the hospital and were eagerly anticipating the baby’s first public appearance.

Earlier, grandparents Prince Charles, his wife, Camilla, and Michael and Carole Middleton—Kate’s parents—visited the young family at the hospital.

Charles called the baby “marvelous,” and told reporters that “wait and see, you’ll see him in a minute.”

Carole Middleton described the infant as “absolutely beautiful.”

Their unnamed baby son, the new third in line to the British throne, was born at the central London hospital at 4:24 p.m. (1524 GMT) on Monday weighing a healthy 8 lbs 6 oz (3.8 kilos).

The palace said Tuesday that “mother, son and father are all doing well this morning.”

As celebratory lights, gun salutes and other tributes were unleashed in Britain and abroad, William thanked staff at St. Mary’s 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,” he said in a statement.
