The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have this  evening revealed that their son – now the third in line to the throne –   will be called George.

Kensington Palace revealed the baby’s full  name will be Prince George Alexander  Louis of Cambridge. The name emerged after baby Cambridge was taken to see his grandparents on  his first afternoon out as it was revealed the Queen and Prince Harry have now  met the royal baby for the first time.

Kate and William smiled broadly and waved  from their car as they were driven away from Kensington Palace by security,  where they had spent their first night together as a family.

Both the Duke and Duchess looked happy and  fresh-faced, with William sat in the front passenger seat and Kate in the back  with their child in his baby seat.

They left their west London home shortly after the Queen had visited her new great-grandson and potentially  discussed  names with the parents, as the guessing  game over what he will be called continues.

Kensington Palace officials would not confirm  where the young family were going this afternoon, but their black Land Rover was  later seen arriving at grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton’s mansion in  Bucklebury, Berkshire.

Her Majesty, who will travel to Balmoral for  her summer holiday on Friday, spent 30 minutes with the Duke, Duchess and Baby  Cambridge from 11am.

It has also emerged that Prince Harry, who is  said to be thrilled to have become an uncle, may have been there last night  after the trio left hospital, having raced back to London from Wattisham airbase  in Suffolk where he is on duty with the  RAF.

It is understood that James Middleton and  Pippa Middleton were also at Kensington Palace yesterday evening.

Prince Philip has yet to meet the child, but  he and his wife will be heading to Balmoral on Friday and it is understood that  Kate and William may take the new prince there for a long weekend this  summer.

Their were clear hints that Kate and William  were off to Bucklebury after heightened police presence was in evidence around  the £5million home of the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents this morning. 

Yellow police cones with a ‘no waiting’  symbols lined both sides of the road every few yards for around a mile either  side of majestic Bucklebury Manor, West Berkshire.

A bright yellow sign stuck to a road sign  confirmed an ’emergency’ three-week bylaw prohibited any form of waiting in the  road while a pair of police officers stood at both entrances to the Grade II  listed Georgian pile, while marked police cars swept past the entrances every  couple of minutes.

A large police horsebox marked ‘Mounted  section’ arrived in the picturesque village at lunchtime and a small marquee  surrounded by marked and unmarked police cars was visible in a nearby field. 

It was not possible to tell whether the  Duchess’ parents or her siblings, Pippa and James, were at the vast estate, set  in 18 acres of land and boasting its own tennis court, swimming pool and  library.

Last night The Queen told guests at a Buckingham Palace reception she was ‘thrilled’ at the birth of  her great-grandson, and today William and Kate may have discussed potential  names with her.

On the eve of the baby’s birth, the Queen  famously told a ten-year-old schoolgirl that she didn’t mind if it was a boy or  a girl, adding: ‘I would very much like it to arrive. I’m going on  holiday’.

Dressed in a turquoise floral outfit she  looked relaxed and happy as she left, having travelled the short distance from  Buckingham Palace without the Duke of Edinburgh, who is still convalescing at  Windsor Castle following exploratory abdominal surgery last month.

Baby Cambridge has spent his first night at  homeafter  a dramatic evening where the waiting world had its first wonderful glimpse of  him.

Prince William said yesterday they were  ‘still working on a name’ for the future king, reportedly because he and Kate wanted to see their baby’s ‘little face’  and get to know him before choosing one.

After he left hospital at around 7pm his aunt  Pippa and brother James were waiting for him at Kensington  Palace for a cuddle as the little boy is introduced to his family..

The Cambridges were safely tucked away in a  small cottage in Kensington Palace’s grounds today, with the only sign of  movement this morning being a royal protection officer walking their dog Ludo nearby.
