Royal Baby on the Move! Kate and William Take Prince to Bucklebury
The royal baby spent just one night in his new digs at Kensington Palace – just enough time for a visit from the Queen and Prince Harry – before Kate Middleton and Prince William whisked him off to Bucklebury.
The new parents left the palace around 1 PM in a black Range Rover, with William in the front passenger seat and new mom Kate smiling at her newborn in the back. A second Range Rover, most likely carrying security, followed.
According to the Telegraph, Thames Valley Police officers began patrolling the area around Kate's parents' house in Bucklebury several days ago. Prior to the couple's 2 PM arrival, police cars began patrolling the vicinity and a helicopter was spotted overhead.
The little prince and his parents are expected to stay with the Middletons for at least several days.
Kate and William apparently waited to skip town until after Queen Elizabeth II had a chance to meet her first great-grandson. Her Majesty was spotted arriving to Kensington at 11 AM and reportedly stayed for an hour and a half.
Louise Butt, who attended a function with the Queen on Tuesday night, said the monarch described the Prince of Cambridge as a “big boy.”
Mrs. Butt added, “She said she is thrilled. She said the first born is very special. We agreed.”
Prince Harry also stopped by to see the tot, although it was unknown if he paid a visit Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
