The world has a new Prince! Just before 6 PM (BST) the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out of the Lindo Wing to show off their new bundle of joy.
Within 12 hours of being admitted to hospital, Kate emerged from St Mary's Hospital looking radiant while holding her precious baby boy. The Duchess opted to wear a bespoke red Jenny Packham shift dress finished with a white lace Peter Pan collar.
Here's a look at the back of the dress.
You may recall that the Duchess wore bespoke pieces from Jenny Packham for her previous Lindo Wing exits. In 2013 she wore a cornflower blue polka dot frock following the birth of Prince George and in 2015 she wore a yellow floral pattered shift dress when she left the hospital with Princess Charlotte.
Today's colour combination of red and white could be a nod to Saint George's Day which is today and symbolized by the red and white St. George's Cross (Flag of England). Or as some have suggested the look could be a nod to Princess Diana following the birth of her second son Prince Harry.
Today Kate wore her praline Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 85' suede pumps which have a pointed-toe and modest heel height.
She finished the look with the Queen's diamond stud and pearl drop earrings.
Here's how this historic day unfolded:
At 8:22am (BST), Kensington Palace broke the news that the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St Mary's Hospital earlier this morning in the early stages of labour.
At 1:22 (BST) Kensington Palace announced the safe arrival of a baby boy! Kensington Palace waited over 2 hours to Tweet the news:
As is customary for a royal birth, a Town Crier also made the announcement that the Duchess Of Cambridge had given birth to a baby boy.
Fans outside the front of the Lindo Wing could not contain their excitement!
As is tradition, a framed notice of the birth also went on display on a ceremonial easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.
At 4 pm, The Duke of Cambridge left the Lindo Wing to return home to Kensington Palace to pick up Prince George and Prince Charlotte.
After meeting their little brother, the royal siblings returned to Kensington Palace. Then at about 6:00 PM the proud parents stepped out of the Lindo Wing to greet the press and show off their new little Prince to the world.
After a brief acknowledgment of the gathered press and fans they moved back inside to prepare for their departure. Finally, the royal couple and their new baby boy leave the hospital.
My goodness, just look at those cheeks!
The Daily Mail posted a few candid photos yesterday showing the Duchess of Cambridge shopping at her local Waitrose supermarket in Norfolk.
Kate who is due to give birth in the coming weeks wore her camel-blush Joseph double-breasted wool coat which she's had in her closet since 2007. The Duchess teamed it with black leggings and her Aquatalia 'Fallon' Black Chelsea Boots first worn last October at the Coach Core graduation ceremony.

This was the couple's second consecutive year to attend the Easter celebrations at Windsor Castle.
The Duchess looked lovely today in her chocolate brown Catherine Walker coat which she first wore to the 2015 St Patrick's Day parade when pregnant with Princess Charlotte. The bespoke piece features a Chelsea collar, and a box pleated front and back. The fabric is a double wool crepe.
Kate again choose to accessorize with her Sylvia Fletcher for Lock & Company 'Betty Boop' hat.
The Duchess offset the dark brown pieces with blush hued supplements. She carried her Loeffler Randall Tab Blush Lizard-Effect Leather Clutch, and on her feet were the Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 85' Praline Suede Pumps.
Kate finished the elegant ensemble with her Balenciaga 'Eugenia' Pearl Clip Earrings, and the pearl brooch she first wore for the 2014 Trooping the Colour parade and whose origin still remains a mystery.
