Prince Félix shook hands with hospital staff as Princess Claire looked overjoyed to have her daughter in her arms - although the little royal seemed unaware of all the excitement as she slept peacefully in her mother's arms.

The pair welcomed their little bundle of joy on Sunday and looked the picture of health and happiness as they show off their first child in an official photograph on Monday.

Princess Claire, 29, is seen cradling her tiny, day-old baby, who is dressed in a pink-and-white hand-smocked dress. Doting dad Prince Félix, meanwhile, sits beside his wife and places a protective arm around his girls.
