The Queen meets Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal baby for the first time
24 JULY 2013The Queen has said she is "thrilled" to welcome her first great-grandson, and two days after Prince William and Kate Middleton's new baby son Prince George was born, the reigning monarch finally got the chance to meet the latest addition to the British royal family.
Queen Elizabeth II was spotted being driven into the grounds of Kensington Palace on Wednesday morning, in a green Bentley car, and was clearly excited to welcome Baby Cambridge. She looked elegant wearing a summery turquoise dress and pearls, and gave a broad smile as she was whisked through the palace gates.
William joked that his son has "a good pair of lungs on him," and looked full of pride as he held the newborn in his arms. Kate revealed that William had changed the first nappy, while her husband quipped that their baby had "way more hair than me."
The Queen was informed of the baby's birth by telephone when Prince William called from the hospital, but had not had a chance to visit Baby Cambridge due to previous engagements at Buckingham Palace.
