Big picture: Scene outside

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left hospital on Tuesday evening with their new baby son, born on 22 July. The duke was born at the same hospital - the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London - some 31 years and one month almost to the day earlier.

Image caption The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge emerged from the hospital shortly after 19:00 BST on 23 July - presenting their new son to waiting well-wishers just as the duke's parents, Diana, Princess of Wales and the Prince of Wales, had done after his own birth.
