Yesterday (April 23), the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a baby boy and, a mere seven hours later, they left the hospital with him.

On the steps of the Lindo Wing, they showed the world and the media their sweet little prince—who even waved his fingers at the adoring crowds. Now, a professional lip reader for the the Mirror, has revealed what William and Kate were saying to each other during their quick photo call with their son.

William: Are you OK with him?

Kate: Yeah.

William: Look, there he is. Over there. [They wave to the left]

Kate: Let’s just wave over there. [They wave to the right]

Kate: Look, he is there. [They wave] It is a bit windy, eh? He might get cold. Let’s go now.

William: Sure.

It was quite clear that Kate was worried about her son getting chilly as she was seen tucking the knit blanket around his teeny fingers. And I don’t blame William for worrying about his wife—how does she manage to look so put together just hours after giving birth?

William, Kate and the baby are all resting at home now after yesterday’s whirlwind of a day! They had their very first visitor this morning—Auntie Pippa stopped by for a visit. Prince Charles is clearly delighted at having another grandchild. He released a statement this morning saying, “We are both so pleased at the news. It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don’t know how I am going to keep up with them.”

It’s likely that the Queen will stop by later today or early tomorrow to meet her great-grandchild. Once she has met him, the couple will release his name. Right now, odds are on his name being Arthur. Prince Arthur has a lovely ring to it, don’t you think?

While we wait for the name, take a look at all the adorable photos of the royal cutie.
