Welcome to the family. Thank you everyone for your kind wishes.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son have traveled home to Kensington Palace today. Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank all staff at the hospital for the care and treatment they have received.
When The Kensington Palace announced the happy news on Monday morning they did not reveal the baby's name and that's fine, but here are some possible contenders!

Arthur, Albert, and Philip are the favorite names for the royal baby, according to the BBC. However, according to experts, the name of the royal baby can lean more towards to the side of the Middleton family, rather than on the side of the royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family. The image features on Their Royal Highnesses' Christmas card this year. The photograph shows The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their two children at Kensington Palace. It was taken earlier this year by @chrisjacksongetty Their Royal Highnesses have also announced this morning that Princess Charlotte will attend the Willcocks Nursery School in London from January 2018. The Willcocks Nursery School has said: "We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte. We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January."
George Luis Alexander, her first son, has the name of six ancient kings. While Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is named after her grandmother. What we do know is that there are no "hard" rules for naming royalty babies. "Now she is much more relaxed," the BBC noted.
