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.

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.

"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."
