The first photos of the new royal baby are here — and they’re adorable

Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy on Monday, April 23. And just hours after she gave birth, Middleton headed home (looking amazing, mind you) with the newborn royal — and photographers were waiting outside the hospital to photograph the moment.

And it’s a good thing they were. The first pictures of the newborn are adorable.

Middleton looked radiant in a red dress from her favorite designer, Jenny Packham.
