Queen Elizabeth is at Kensington Palace this morning to meet the latest member of the Royal Family — the baby born Monday to her grandson Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Britain's new prince spent his first night at the palace apartment, a day after his proud parents emerged from St. Mary's Hospital in London with the healthy boy to meet the world for the first time.

The name of the baby, third in line to the throne, has yet to be announced.

The baby, third in the line of succession after Prince Charles and William, will carry the title "His Royal Highness Prince (insert name) of Cambridge.

Bonnie Brownlee, a royals commentator, told CBC News on Wednesday morning that as the Queen sees her great-grandson for the first time, William and Kate will likely present the names they would like discussed, and "we may get a name today, maybe tomorrow."

Images of the prince, his little hand peeking above a white crocheted wrap, blanketed the front pages of newspapers Wednesday.

The Daily Mail offered a photo album image with the headline "Baby's First Royal Wave."

The prince slept through his public debut, though William assured the media he had "a good pair of lungs on him."

After emerging from the doors of St. Mary's Lindo Wing following her discharge Tuesday evening, Kate was wearing a baby blue, polka-dot dress, reminiscent of the seafoam green polka-dot dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, when she gave the first public viewing of William after leaving hospital.

Brownlee said while Diana wasn't alive to see the new baby, William and Kate have been "very symbolic in the ways they showed gestures toward Diana."

"The only thing she [Kate] did was make the dress a little smaller because as we know, Diana hated that dress, which was like wearing a tent."
