A look at previous first-born royal babies

Kate Middleton and Prince William have given the world the first glimpse of their royal baby. The little boy appeared with his proud parents on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington to loud cheers from the waiting crowds. 


William and Kate's baby now sits third in line to the throne, behind his father, the Duke of Cambridge, and his grandfather, Prince Charles, but as the couple's first-born child, the soon-to-be-named Prince also joins the special group of first-born royal babies.

From the Princess who unexpectedly became heir to the throne, her son who was born to be King and the Queen's adored grandchildren, see HELLO! Online's gallery of those first-born babies...
