Rough Cut (No Reporter Narration)
Carole and Michael Middleton, parents of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge left the hospital by taxi on Tuesday (July 23) but not before discussing their new grandson with journalists.
"He's absolutely beautiful," Carole Middleton said.
She added that both Kate and William "were doing really well. We're so thrilled."
But when asked whether she knew anything about a name, she remained tight-lipped.
"Absolutely not" she said.
The yet unnamed baby Cambridge was born on Monday afternoon (July 22) and the world's media and royal fans have been camped outside the hospital ever since.
Royal aides said the couple and their newborn were all doing well and expected to leave St. Mary's Hospital early on Tuesday evening or possibly Wednesday (July 24) morning.
The baby's name will be announced later. George and James, both traditional royal names, were favoured choices with British bookmakers for the child who is destined to be king one day.
Kate and William are expected to adhere to tradition by giving the public the first sight of the royal baby on the steps when they leave St Mary's in west London - just as William's father Prince Charles and late mother, Princess Diana, did with him.
