LONDON -- A beaming Prince William and his wife, Kate, have shown their newborn baby boy to the world.

Kate carried the future monarch outside St. Mary's Hospital in central London Tuesday evening London-time so he could be photographed by the waiting press.

The photos are likely to be reprinted for decades as the baby grows into adulthood and his role as a future king.

The young family is expected to head to an apartment at Kensington Palace.

The child's name has not yet been announced.
