Following his public debut on Tuesday, Baby Cambridge was today driven from Kensington Palace to his mother’s family home in Berkshire.

The unnamed little Prince was strapped securely in his car seat, as his mother perched beside him in the back of a black Range Rover driven by proud papa Prince William.

The new family had earlier been visited by the Queen and Prince Harry before they off to spend time with Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton in the village of Bucklebury.

Celebrations there are already underway, with journalists and media crews already descending upon the tiny parish.

Pub landlord John Haley told the BBC he had already sold 12 bottles of champagne.

Bye bye: The Duchess of Cambridge waves farewell

He added: "Everyone's over the moon. When the news came out everybody went crazy. I think the celebrations are going to be all week."

The little boy was born in the private Lindo wing at St Mary's Hospital in London on Monday. His parents showed him off to the world just a day later, speaking of the "very emotional" event of his birth.

Kate and William described their new son as 'very special'

Holding his son, William walked forward with his wife to answer a few questions from waiting journalists.

"He's got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure," he joked. "He's a big boy, he's quite heavy. We are still working on a name so we will have that as soon as we can."
