The Queen has paid a visit to her new great-grandson, the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The half-hour visit to Kensington Palace came after the new family spent their first night at home.

They left St Mary's Hospital in west London last evening, where the duke told reporters they were yet to name the third in line to the throne.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said it was "now private and quiet time for them to get to know their son".

The Queen made the short journey from Buckingham Palace in a dark green Bentley.
