Prince William and Kate Middleton will spend the next few days at Kensington Palace; afterwards they are expected to travel to their country home Anmer Hall on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The duke and duchess are hugely grateful for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world. It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter.

“Their Royal Highnesses were visited by the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Mr. and Mrs. Middleton, and Pippa Middleton.”

Prince Harry, who narrowly missed the princess’s birth after returning to Australia to finish his secondment to the country’s military, said she was “absolutely beautiful” and he could not wait to meet her.

The name of the newborn princess – sister to Prince George – will not be announced on Sunday, May 3rd.

Bookmakers say Charlotte and Alice have emerged as the favorite names for the princess, followed by Olivia, Victoria and Elizabeth.
