How beautiful does Catherine look in red!? And the baby is adorable: looks like he has his dad's and grandfather's sausage fingers--no doubt at all whose son he is. The tenderness between the duke and duchess was lovely, you could really feel their joy.

Charlotte's little wave was so sweet, but William's downward glance+shy smile melted my heart.

Best wishes to the family, and best wishes also for Catherine's quick recovery.

i hope arthur is not the chosen name. it is a nice name but sounds too old fashioned? maybe David, Nicholas, Richard or Edward? maybe they will want to do a tribute to Philip given he retired not long ago?

Most on time Baby of the three. Also the heaviest. And with the coolest sister of them all.

Mom once again proved the crazy good genes she came from, childbirth-wise. In a room full of women telling their childbirth horror stories, Kate loses hands down. And how nice for her!

Land Rover US has a fairly lousy US web page. And comparative car reviews here tend to focus on non-Land-Rover Models. So I could not determine this.

Even though the family split up to go home, I was wondering if/how their SUV could handle three cars seats.

In the US, children are now encouraged to stay in car seats until around six years of age and even then, to use a booster seat until 10-12. By those standards, C and W will need to fit 3 car seats into the family vehicle. When they all drive together. And there are relatively few car models that do this very well. One option is to have two car seats in the second row and a third in the 3rd row. Somehow, I envision that being as problematic it was when I was a kid and we all had to fit into a station wagon.

Whatever - does anyone know if the Cambridge kids are still using car seats (I am guessing yes, since Dad had to open doors and tuck in before they popped out) and how/if the LR Discovery can handle 3 across kid seat installation?

What a joyous day! And that Charlotte is stealing all our hearts. George has first-child syndrome, so I empathize with him. Kate looked GRAND. And Wills looked like he has this whole act down.

Congrats to them and to us all!

Michelle Obama tweeted today :

"Barack and I are thrilled to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their newest arrival! We hope to meet him soon for a Kensington Palace pajama party. I'll wear my robe!"

Very cute!

I don’t find Arthur old-fashioned at all. It is a cool name.

I think it’s easier for the hospital if Kate goes home as soon as possible then it’s back to normal for them. She does look amazing happy family

Silly tweet from Mrs Obama. Trudeau did much better.

The Obama’s met Prince George in his pajamas. So that’s what she’s referencing.

I'm thinking she's referring to having met George when he was a toddler. He wore pajamas and a robe.

You mean that little slip from William?

I hope they won't call the baby Jack...

Wow didn't check the news before I left for work. Now on late break and having to catch up on pages of news.

Congratulations to the couple, George and Charlotte, on the new prince

He looks very sweet. Cant wait for the name

Charlotte was adorable, waving and so spirited. George definitely a bit shy.

And yes, Michelle Obama's tweet makes far more sense with the photo

Isn't Jack a diminutive from John? (President John F. Kennedy was called "Jack" by his family and friends).

It's like harry and henry. Some time ago Jack and harry were diminutives, now they are just full names on their own.

Yes but Jack is still also used as a nickname.

It could be that they name a son Prince John, but refer to him as Jack, like Harry. But honestly pretty sure it was just a joke from William.
