After the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child into the world on Monday morning, we've had our very first glimpse of the baby prince.

The duchess gave birth to her son in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital - the same location where she gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte - just after 11am, Kensington Palace confirmed.

A few hours later, the proud parents introduced their son to the waiting crowds before returning home to Kensington Palace.

Just like her previous hospital appearances, Kate chose a dress by British designer Jenny Packham paired with a pair of neutral pumps. And as to be expected, the parents looked delighted as they introduced their newborn to the world.

For Prince George's debut in July 2013, Kate chose a polka dot-print style - perhaps a nod to the design worn by Princess Diana when she was photographed holding Prince William outside the same hospital steps back in 1982.

In May 2015, when the couple made their first appearance with Princess Charlotte, Kate stepped out in another Jenny Packham dress. This time, she opted for a white and yellow design with a delicate floral pattern and patent Jimmy Choo stilettos, instead of the sling-back espadrilles she chose for her first appearance with Prince George.

Kate's latest dress choice has also sparked comparisons to the similar style chosen by Princess Diana in 1984, when she introduced Prince Harry to the world on the steps of the Lindo wing. Others have suggested that the red and white colour combination might be in tribute to St George's Day.

We can't wait to see the next family photo - with George and Charlotte included. Congratulations to the Cambridge family.
