Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge show their newly-born daughter to the mediaPrince William and his wife Kate were on Sunday spending their first day back at home with their baby daughter as Britain eagerly awaited a name for the new royal princess. The couple, their firstborn Prince George and the new arrival were expected to spend the next few days relaxing together at their Kensington Palace apartment, a day after Kate gave birth to the baby girl, who is fourth in line to the throne. They were cheered by hundreds of well-wishers who had gathered outside St Mary's Hospital in central London along with the massed ranks of photographers from the world's media. The sleeping baby was wrapped in a woollen shawl as a relaxed-looking Kate, 33, cradled her in her arms in front of the hospital's private Lindo Wing.
