After a busy Wednesday that included a visit from his paternal great-grandmother, the Queen, and a road trip to the Bucklebury home of his maternal grandparents, the Middletons, William and Kate's new arrival can now focus on his next official duty: becoming the center of attention for his parents.
"There'll be a little bit of time when they get to know the baby. A little bit of downtime," an aide tells PEOPLE.
But the new mom and dad aren't facing their new roles alone – Pippa Middleton and boyfriend Nico Jackson have already been to Kensington Palace to help take care of the newborn and help the Duke and Duchess settle in, the aide adds.

He's one proud prince.
"Both my wife [Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall] and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild," Prince Charles, 64, says in a statement. "It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy."
He continues, "Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone's life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.”

After Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, let it slip that the royal family might be welcoming its newest member sooner rather than later, no one is more excited than we are.
That's why we're tracking everything from how Kate is preparing for her royal bundle of joy – by relaxing at her parents' home in Bucklebury – to Prince William's excitement over becoming a dad.
Will they name the baby after William's late mother, Princess Diana? Think their beloved pup Lupo will be jealous? How will Queen Elizabeth be as a great-grandmother?

The grandparents and aunt and uncle of the soon-to-be-born Baby Cambridge had a night out at the palace Thursday.
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla joined Carole and Mike Middleton at a concert to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's coronation.
They were joined by Pippa Middleton and her brother James as they sat in the royal box at a concert at sundown in the back garden of Buckingham Palace.

As any parents-to-be can attest, prepping for baby is work that's never done. And, in the latest royal look-a-like installment, faux Kate is no exception!
Photographer Alison Jackson – who previously shot the "royal baby shower" and the newlyweds' "first Christmas" – has thought of everything this time, from the Duchess getting her bump measured by Camilla to helping The Queen paint the nursery. HRH really can rock some coveralls!
The latest spoof series, released by Ladbrokes to launch its royal baby odds in the U.K., also includes Kate's sister Pippa helping choose baby names while Kate noshes on pickles and ice cream.
While it's not the real thing, since Kate (due in July) and Prince William are laying low while Prince Harry's U.S. visit is underway, the pics at least satisfy royal watchers' cravings as well!

Ah, babies. They bring everyone together – even the royal family!
Well, sort of. In the latest scenario imagined by photographer Alison Jackson, who specializes in spoof photos of the royal family, everyone from Pippa Middleton to Camilla to The Queen gather together to fête Duchess Catherine. The faux mom-to-be unwraps onesies that say "Born to Rule" while her royal family – and one of the Queen's beloved corgis! – look on.
Jackson previously arranged a shoot with Catherine and Prince William's lookalikes for a Christmas-themed photo shoot.
And we're not quite sure, but that we're hoping that might actually be Camilla!

For Prince William and wife Kate, it was a Christmas church service in rural England on Tuesday.
While the rest of his family celebrated at Sandringham, Norfolk, William, wearing a suit, and Kate, in a burgundy winter coat, were at church 150 miles away.
The couple are staying with Kate's family for Christmas Day. They turned up for the service at St. Mark's Church with Kate's sister Pippa and brother James.

Why shouldn't Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall be smiling?
It's been a year filled with happy news: the Queen's Jubilee, a baby on the way for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, even Prince Harry was revealed as a popular party guy – yet responsible enough to serve his country proudly.
And so, the couple's official Christmas card shows the two of them looking their merriest in a shot taken by photographer Danny Martindale while the royals were on board the Spirit of Chartwell during the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on June 3, reports the Telegraph.

What will she pick up next?
For Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, it's been one animal encounter after another as she tours Australia and New Zealand with husband Prince Charles for the Queen's Jubilee.
After cuddling a kangaroo and a koala in past weeks, Camilla helped care for an injured kiwi bird on Thursday during a visit to Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand.

They saved the best for last!
After a long day of speeches, handshakes and wine tastings, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla wrapped up their Diamond Jubilee visit to Melbourne and Adelaide, Australia, with something incredibly cute: two baby koalas!
At a garden party at Adelaide's Government House on Wednesday, the royals each held a 9-month old koala – one named Matilda, the other Kao (short for chaos) – saved by rescue volunteers Warren and Rae Campbell.
