Prince William and Kate Middleton leave the Lindo Wing with new baby boy
The introductions happened a lot quicker for baby number three as just moments ago Kate Middleton and Prince William left the Lindo Wing with their new baby boy.
In the last hour, William had arrived back at the hospital with Prince George and Princess Charlotte to introduce them to their new brother, and now the world is getting the same opportunity.
News outlets were reporting in the last half hour that we would see Kate before the day was out, however, we don't think anyone imagined it would happen so quickly.
