11 OCTOBER 2007

After the Palace announced the Duchess of Cornwall had become a grandmother for the first time, royal watchers waited eagerly for a glimpse of the new arrival. And they were rewarded on Wednesday afternoon when little Lola Parker Bowles was taken home by her parents.

Carrying the newborn in a car seat, Camilla's 32-year-old son Tom Parker Bowles looked every inch the proud father as he left Queen Charlotte's Hospital in West London. Beside him was his wife Sara - her handbag bulging with baby essentials - who gave birth just the day before, shortly after 5pm.

Wrapped up in a white knitted blanket, Lola - who has the future king of England as her step-grandfather - slept soundly through her first public outing as she was carried to the car.
