As with their other two children, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge drove their son home from the Lindo Wing following his safe arrival on Monday, taking the newborn in a baby carrier with a white cover – which had a very special significance. This is because the cover was created by Pasito a Pasito – a Spanish brand - which from now until the end of May, is priced at just 65.90 euros. The Cambridge family have close links with Spain. Not only do Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, have a Spanish nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, but Kate often dresses her children in Spanish brands, including Pepa & Co and Irulea – a Spanish boutique based San Sebastian, where both Charlotte and the newborn baby's bonnets were purchased.

The children's Spanish nanny Maria played a special role in the baby's outfit choice. Her mother bought the clothes from the children's boutique. The original set contained two bonnets – one white – which was worn by the newborn, and one ivory – which Charlotte wore in 2015. As with his big brother and sister, the new royal baby – in time – will also no doubt learn to speak Spanish.

Since his arrival, royal watchers have been waiting in anticipation for William and Kate to announce their son's name to the world. The most popular contender to date is Alexander, with William seemingly hinting at it during his public engagement at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday to attend the Anzac Day service. When quizzed about the moniker, William said: "Alexander? “Funny you should say that," adding that Jerry is also a strong name.
