11:04 am
i have to tell you, this has been the most anticipation i have seen in the past weeks all eyes on the door and everyone knows this is about to happen with a five minute warning and we are talking about any minute now. we know a microphone is set up and we hope that prince william may come up and speak to the microphone. they tested the microphone. there was a helicopter. we hear they called east helicopter because it was interfering with the microphone. all signs we hope we hear directlily from the newest royal family, a three-some.
11:05 am
we hope they walk down the steps like princess die -- di and prince charles with the everyone waiting and everyone gasped and screamed because they thought it was the royal family. we do have hospital workers who are lining either side. prince william and she have given thank for the tremendous care and help over the past 37 hours they have been inside and they have released two statements saying that. so, all eyes on that door. and we should mention, it is a lovely scene, hospital workers are lining a sky bridge overlooking where we will see the royal family come out and i see the hospital above me and all the ones are open. every person who was in the hospital had their head sticking out of the window with cameras ready and we have the streets
11:06 am
lined as far as you can see with well wishers hoping for the first look of the brand new baby and we want to know if we will hear a name. we hope that the prince will have something to say about his new baby boy. >> not to question the staff at st. mary's but a bad time to need a nurse. >> no to the destination, the palace, id that they are staying in a cottage while the renovations are being made and someone is probably thinking of the nursery, right? >> well, you are absolutely right, bill. they are going to make their way here, william and kate and baby cambridge but when they are london that is where they normally stay. they will eventually move into what is called apartment 1 (a)
11:07 am
that is being renovated right now according to the royal accounts. they have spent $1.5 million preparing the work as well as installing new heating and electricity and that work will be finished in the fall so that is most likely when they will be moving in, but the palace is quite significant, particularly for william because, of course, you will recall it is here that both william and harry spend time with their mother. they have a lot of good, fond, memories, living here at kensington. of course, all eyes are on the doors of st. mary's hospital and still at the palace. >> i could not help but think back to over two years ago when most of the world was supplying at the newlyweds leaving the abbey in that dashing vehicle
11:08 am
and the first heir of welcome the conqueror to go home with a car seat. we went back and checked we, princess di held the boys on the escorted drives home and it is passing for a father letting go the sports car and something a little more sensible. patrick was princess dia's chief of staff for eight years and for a country that knows more of the royals from the house of disney than the house of windsor, why should we care about had moment? help us understand what brains are -- brains are feeling. >> it is not a royal command. i make that point. it has caught the public imagination. it produces an extraordinary surge of affection for the monarchy. what we are seeing is two things: obviously, the personal
11:09 am
level, the beautiful new family moving from intense privacy of the delivery suite to the cottage which is a beautiful cute little english cottage the front door of which william can see apartment 8 and 9 where he and harry grew up so it is familiar childhood territory. that contrasts with the street when they get out. the scene is of hundreds of photographers and thousands of cheering wellishers, an intimidating sight which is why it is important constitutionally, this is the her readity proving it can reproduce itself as if in american terms the found fathers came down the steps with a new issue of the constitution saying "here you are." >> i know the family had a few words as they left their first meeting with their grandchild. >> that is right, carol and michael came in a taxi and she
11:10 am
told reporters that he was absolutely beautiful and that they were both doing so well. someone shouted out, would you suggest a name and she said, absolutely not and said the parents are fabulous and they asked about the first cuddle with her grandson and she said it was amazing and coming back do me can charles was asked about baby, and he said, you wait, you will see in a minute so everyone knew it would be true we would get that first look of the family because early today we were not sure if we could get an appearance. now it seems like that is absolutely happening, in fact, we should mention we saw the range rovers pull up because that means that they are coming out. also of note, it may sound silly, but what kate is wearing will be a very big deal. you remember when you looked at the pictures of princess di came
11:11 am
out, people looked at her hair, dress, and, maybe, perhaps, what the baby is wearing but it will probably be swaddled in a blanket. speaking of all these of fromers, i have my iphone because i am close to where i think william and kate and baby cambridge will come out and i excited about my own personal photo as are all of the thousands of people who are waiting in great anticipation if them to walk out for the very first time. >> i was listening to my wife explain to our nine-year-old daughter yesterday the moment when she came out with william and what it meant and she remembers so this is a touch stone in history. you mention the baby to be named later or perhaps they have choicen the name but it took a week before we learned william's name. if you believe the betting parlors, george is the 2-1 favorite and james is 4-1. i had diana as a sentimental favorite as probably many did, but i asked patrick, what about
11:12 am
spencer as a boy, and her being from the spencer family as a sentimental choice and he said that is problematic. >> it is unlikely but it is a nice idea. spencer was the fine english name. winston churchill is distant relative of the princess and now of baby came bridge. >> you can bet on the first world, "papa" is 7-4 favorite and "mama" 2-1 but i will take a shot at "bloody reporters," as the first word from the infant. i wondered, you were telling a remain whatting story of the first time william understood the gravity of his d.n.a. and it was -- how old was he? >> he was nine or ten, and he was in wails in the center of the city, in wales.
11:13 am
here we go. >> hold that story. here is the moment i think we have been waiting for. the hospital staff is getting close position. >> it was the first time he had to work a rope line. he took his cue from his mom and he did it like a pro and, of course, the most important thing was, he remembered, because his mother said it is only a few seconds from his life but for someone else it is decades of special memory so he inherited both parents' skill to make a connection straight-away. >> there they are. there they are. the newest, happy family. kate holding the little boy with
11:14 am
the proud toddler next to her. i can imagine all the women, i am thinking of my wife at 26 hours after giving birth, having to walk out as the wobbled watched. she looked radiant and happy. what is it like, amy? >> my gosh, it is unbelievable. just to be that close and so happy and so radiant and there you see handing baby came ridge and the thrills going around. what a lovely family they are going to speak it looks like. the duke and duchess of cambridge.
11:15 am
[ inaudible ] >> he is a big boy. he is quite heavy. we are working on a name and we will let you know. it is the first time we have seen him, really, a proper chance to catch up. it is very emotional. >> any parent knows what this feeling is. >> very special. very special. [ inaudible ] >> i know how long you have been sitting out here so hopefully you can get back to norm hal and we can look after him. everyone is good thankfully.
11:16 am
[ inaudible ] >> we will wait-and-see. we will wait and see. we have done that already. [ inaudible ] thank you. thank you. thank you. >> so we learn that the little boy has a good set of lungs according to prince william and he has changed his first nap by, a coming of age moment for every man and to head back inside to get the car seat before getting into the rovers and heading home to the palace. just did put this moment in perspective how about then and now. 31 years apart, william as the little swaddled infant being handed from child to diana and the circle of life, a generation
11:17 am

11:18 am
things and we have again back through the door to the lindo wing to get ready for "home," meaning kensington palace. they will get in a vehicle and what is interesting for the first time a royal baby will go home in a baby car seat. that has never been done before. with both william and his where, harry, she hand carried them back home. >> i believe i heard the prince say he changed his first nappy so he is training himself correctly. modern young dad and they will take this young child home, the once and future king to a private residence being fixed up right now and her mom, her "mum" will help her. >> another big question, unanswered, you her the prince say we don't have a name decided yet is it could be a few more days and the world awaits so obviously, a lot names are being offered, george, james, alexander is talked about as well, so for that, we have to
11:19 am

11:20 am
staff but they will be more hands on than will's parents with him and harry. you heard him asking for privacy saying, hopefully now you guys can continue with your normal tasks and the family obviously is going to want privacy in the days and weeks ahead. >> and katie marzullo has been monitoring every frame of this. katie, what do you have? >> it has been so much fun to watch and waiting, waiting, waiting, and then of course we got to see the baby. now, in front of the hospital, quickly, you can see prince william rushing his little baby in the car seal that kristen mentioned. that is a first in that s.u.v. and home to kensington palace. it has been a day sin the baby was born and not even a day, born at, well, their time, yes, more than a day, a day and a couple of hours now that it is after 6:00 in the evening in long continue. so, that little baby in the car seat off to go home the whole
