TheKate Middletonand Prince William welcomed their first child together yesterday (July 22), with the baby boy weighing a healthy 8lbs 6oz.
The Royal couple have now thanked staff at St Mary's Hospital, with Sky News quoting the proud parents as saying: "We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received.
"We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone - staff, patients and visitors - for their understanding during this time."
A Kensington Palace spokesman added: "Mother, son and father are all doing well this morning."
K-Middy and Wills have also apparently vowed to support to a charity associated with St Mary's Hospital in celebration of their son's birth.
The family are not expected to leave the hospital until later tonight or tomorrow.
Speculation that Kate could be gearing up to leave the Lindo Ward today (July 23) were sparked after her hairdresser was seen arriving at the hospital in West London this morning.
Sky News Royal Correspondent Paul Harrison later confirmed: "We understand that the Duke and Duchess will depart either later this evening, not before 6pm, or tomorrow morning."
Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton visited the hospital today, with Prince Charles likely to see his grandson for the first time today.
The Royal baby boy's name is still yet to be revealed, with George, James, Alexander, Louis and Henry currently favourites at the bookies.
Before we get wind of his moniker, the Queen will find out his name first, with Sky News adding that it could be weeks before the general public know.
