The world is going ga-ga over the Prince of Cambridge and lucky for all of us royal watchers, there's a lot more left to learn about the future king in the coming days, weeks and months.
The biggest question mark at the moment is what Kate Middleton and Prince William will name the tiniest member of the Royal Family. The truth is the name could be announced at any time, though the Queen's imminent vacation may speed things along.
Bets on possible baby names are pouring in, with Brits leaning toward James or George.
Still, the royals have been known to take their time with such matters. Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana announced Prince William's name after a week, while Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip waited a whole month to name Prince Charles. "Kate and William themselves waited three weeks to pick the name of their cocker spaniel: Lupo," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Britain's Catherine Duchess of Cambridge waves as she rides back to Buckingham Palace following the Queen's Birthday parade, 'Trooping the Colour,' in central London on June 15, 2013.
But before learning the name, we may get a real glimpse of the little Prince. The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth at St. Mary's Hospital in London, the same hospital where the late Princess Diana gave birth to William and Harry. Upon leaving the hospital, Kate will be expected to pose for the first public photographs of the little prince, just as Diana did.
While Will and Kate will probably keep a low profile with their son in the near term, the public and media can expect much fanfare any time baby Cambridge makes an appearance, including at his upcoming christening and possibly during a royal tour of Australia and New Zealand in spring 2014.
Diana took a baby Prince William on the same trip in 1983, and we bet Will and Kate will want to follow in her footsteps.
But long before then, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will want some quality family time with their new baby boy. William has already said he's taking a two-week paternity leave from his job as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue pilot, and rumour has it Kate will move to her parents' house in Berkshire to enjoy the new child with family.
Speculation over the royal couple's choice of name has run wild in the time since the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy was announced, with Brits betting on front-runners with and without strong historical precedents.
By choosing a polka-dotted dress for her hospital departure, Kate has inadvertently opened the flood gates to another wave of comparison to a woman she has never even met.
Sin City has officially extended an offer for the royal baby to visit once he's of age. Do you think baby George's uncle, Prince Harry, will come along?
Your sex life will never be the same. In my day. What, not breast-feeding?
From diet tips to "little baby, little problems," sleep-deprived and super-stressed new parents have heard it all. And they want you to stop it.
As Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, move along on their parenting journey, it seems even the queen has had a what-not-to-say moment. According to a special edition of Us magazine on raising royals, she exclaimed soon after William's birth: "Thank goodness he hasn't ears like his father!"
All of a sudden, there's a lot more interest in Carole Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge's 58-year-old mom and the only biological grandmother of the littlest future king of England.
With Kate and her mom extremely close, and the new parents both eager to live somewhat of a normal life, you can be sure Grannie Middleton will want to be very hands-on in her new royal role. Here's what you need to know about Carole.

The Telegraph reports that the couple hasn't yet finished decorating a nursery because they are waiting for the completion of their new apartment within Kensington Palace. According to E! Online, this 20-room space, also known as Apartment 1A, will be ready for the growing family in August. Prior to the renovations, this vacant area was serving as an office and storage space.
The royal baby is here! Now that we've seen him and his parents have said some sweet words about the birth, we're left wondering... what is his official title?
Until Will and Kate choose a first name, the royal baby will officially be titled as "HRH Prince of Cambridge." It makes sense, given that his father is titled "Prince William, Duke of Cambridge" and Kate is titled "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge." In fact, the royal baby's title will be the first time "Prince of Cambridge" has been used in 194 years! Find out more about his royal title here.
Kate Middleton gave birth to a son on Monday afternoon, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have not yet made their baby name choice public -- and if precedent is any indication, it could be a week or even a month before their selection is announced.
On leaving the hospital with his wife and newborn on Tuesday, Prince William said the couple are "still working on a name," assuring an eager public, "We'll have that as soon as we can."
In the meantime, the baby name frenzy, that's been brewing since Kate's pregnancy was announced, is at its peak. Find out which royal name is the favorite!
Preliminary thoughts upon “meeting” the Royal Baby for the first time:
He waves! Our first Royal wave.
Kate didn't fall down the steps while holding her son. I held my breath just in case. After all, she was wearing heels.
Kate made absolutely no attempt to appear like anything other than a woman who has just given birth. Okay, her hair looked better than most new mothers, but

Kate Middleton and Prince William left St Mary's Hospital at 7:14 pm BST on July 23 with the royal baby boy in tow.
The duchess arrived at the hospital early in the morning on July 22 through a secret entrance. She gave birth to the 8-pound, 6-ounce baby at 4:24 p.m that day, more than a week after his rumored due date.
"I'll remind him of his tardiness when he's a bit older," Prince William joked to the press waiting outside the hospital. Kate stood beside Will holding her newborn son while wearing a bespoke blue dress by British designer, Jenny Packham. See photos here.
Though he may never escape the glare of the limelight, we hope the newborn son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be comforted by his many blessings: a beautiful home, famous friends, thousands of adoring fans and… oh yes, a hefty billion dollar inheritance. Read more about it here.
