The Queen meets her great-grandson!

24 July 2013: The Queen took a trip to Kensington Palace this morning to go and meet the new royal arrival, the Prince of Cambridge.

The 87-year-old monarch took the short trip from Buckingham Palace in a dark green Bentley to Kensington Palace to meet her newborn great grandson at around 11am.

The Queen wore a floral turquoise outfit with a simple pearl necklace and earrings, and looked ‘upbeat’ as she left Kate and Wills’ home. Her visit lasted around 30 minutes, before she left around 11:35am.

Her Majesty must have been pleased that the latest member of the royal family arrived in time for her to meet him before she takes her annual holiday to Balmoral on Friday. Just last week she told a schoolgirl in the Lake District that she wished the royal baby would ‘hurry up’, as she was off on holiday in just over a week’s time.

The Queen had already spoken of her excitement to meet the royal baby today saying, ‘the firstborn is very special’. We bet she was absolutely spellbound by the little cutie, just look at him!

Have you got any guesses as to what Kate and Wills might call their newborn? Let us know in our comments section below!
