We were so thrilled with the big news that Kate Middleton gave birth to her third child on Monday, April 23, at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Kensington Palace's announcement via Twitter let the world know that Kate was "safely delivered of a son," and of course we've been sitting here glued to our computers and TV screens waiting for Kate and William to appear with their new son outside of the Lindo Wing. Lucky for us -- that time has arrived!

  • Earlier today, Princess Charlotte and Prince George arrived to meet their new brother, before the rest of the world, naturally.

    We cannot even get over how little Charlotte stole the show. A mini-Kate in the making for sure.

  • Not long after George and Charlotte met their sibling, Kensington Palace announced that Kate would be headed home this evening.

    The Palace also shared this message as a thank-you to everyone who took care of Kate and the new prince.

  • And then came the big debut!

    It was hard not to get teary-eyed as Kate and William walked down those hospital steps with their new little heir! And speaking of Kate, could she possibly be any more gorgeous? The red dress is simply stunning, and is no doubt an ode to the late Princess Diana.

  • Diana also wore a red dress with a white collar when she introduced Prince Harry.

    How touching that Kate chose to honor her in such a sweet way.

  • Kensington Palace shared this gorgeous photo just minutes after the big reveal.

    They captioned the shot simply with, "Welcome to the family."

    Could it be more perfect? We're so thrilled for William, Kate, George, Charlotte, and the entire royal crew. What a glorious day!

  • Here's a close-up shot of the sweet baby boy in his car seat, on his way home with Mum and Dad.

    It won't be long now until we finally find out his name. Will it be Philip? Or Charles? Or Arthur? Whatever William and Kate choose, we are simply thrilled.
