It's the moment the world's been waiting for! Well, at least, the moment we've been waiting for since yesterday's birth announcement.


Royal Baby Name Revealed!


It was a flood of camera flashes and applause as Prince William and Kate Middleton emerged from the Lindo Wing of London's St. Mary's hospital on Tuesday holding their newborn baby boy, posing momentarily for the paparazzi and well-wishers who have been camped out in anticipation of the occasion.

Prince William made remarks to the media, joking that his son has "a good pair of lungs" and has "more hair than me."

FLASHBACK: In comparison take a look at a similar shot already iconic and inscribed in the pages of history that shows Princess Diana and Prince Charles leaving the hospital in 1982 with their own baby boy - Prince William.
