Royal Baby Makes His First Public Appearance (PHOTO)

Awww! 54

Kate Middleton royal baby Prince WilliamIt's happened! Kate Middleton and Prince William finally introduced His Royal Highness, the new prince, to the world! The royal baby was born on Monday, and he and the Duchess of Cambridge got one night in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital to recover from the big birth before his first public appearance. But after the grandparents stopped by to visit -- Prince Charles and Camilla, of course, as well as Kate's parents -- it was time for the future king to make his big debut!

The Duchess, who reportedly had a hairdresser swing by before her release (can you blame her, she only has the world watching!), looks as radiant as we'd expect -- new motherhood agrees with her! And the royal baby is absolutely perfect ... of course!
