Britain’s new prince heads to grandparents’ house

LONDON (AP) — Britain’s new royal baby is doing a lot of meeting and greeting in his first 24 hours out of the hospital.

This morning, Queen Elizabeth met her new great-grandson for the first time, during a visit to Kensington Palace. She spent about a half-hour visiting the new Prince of Cambridge, her third great-grandchild.

Prince William and his wife Kate then took the baby to visit his maternal grandparents outside London.

Palace officials say Prince Harry has also been to see his new nephew.

There’s still no name for the boy who is third in line to the British throne. In addition to choosing a name — or more likely, four names — William and Kate will soon choose a photographer for the baby’s first official portrait.
