His grandmother says the new royal baby is "absolutely beautiful."

Carole Middleton and her husband Michael visited their daughter Kate and her new baby boy today at the London hospital where the baby was born yesterday. She said her daughter and grandson are "both doing really well," and that the grandparents are "so thrilled."

Kate and her husband, Prince William, are expected to remain at the hospital with their new son until this evening or tomorrow morning. For now, the appearance of the future king -- and his name -- remain a royal mystery. The boy may not be named for days or even weeks.

Meanwhile, tourists and well-wishers have gathered outside Buckingham Palace, taking pictures of the golden easel on which the birth announcement was displayed. One man who took a two-mile detour on his run to work said, "Yet again our royal family is bringing everyone together." He calls it a "great event."
