After the Middletons visited Baby Cambridge on Tuesday, next up were Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Charles, 64, and Camilla, 66, arrived at St. Mary’s Hospital’s Lindo Wing around 5:25 p.m., where they were greeted by hospital staff.

The couple both waved at the media who’ve been camped across the road for days. Charles, with a broad smile, asked if the camera crews had been waiting long.

Carole and Michael Middleton visited the newborn for an hour and spoke briefly to the press throng outside upon exiting.

“He’s absolutely beautiful,” said his grandmother, who spoke for herself and her husband.

Referring to her daughter and the baby, Carole Middleton said, “They are both doing well. We are absolutely thrilled.”
