Princess Charlotte has gone out on her first outing from Kensington Palace with parents Prince William and Kate Middleton and brother Prince George. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided to take their children and settle into their country home in Anmer Hall in Norfolk for the next few weeks or so.

The royal family was seen leaving Kensington Palace at lunchtime today in their black Range Rover with William behind the wheel and Kate carrying the newborn princess in her arms. Prince George reportedly occupied the backseat, while a BMW followed them from behind. They were expected to arrive in Norfolk approximately after two hours, following the 120-mile drive.

According to The London Evening Standard, the Duke, 32, and Duchess, 33, are set on spending the first few weeks of their new daughter’s life in the 10-room Georgian mansion on the Queen’s Sandringham estate to get used to a life away from the eyes of the media. The red brick manor rests on a secluded area on the monarch’s vast, private estate.

It is believed that the next time Kate and her children will be seen in public is on the princess’ christening, which is about three or four months from now. Even then, the event will be a private one, with only a few selected photographs to be officially released.

Earlier at the Kensington Palace, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth met her fifth great-granddaughter for the first time as the baby was being registered under the name Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, in honor of Princess of Wales Diana and the queen herself. The princess was registered by Alison Cathcart, who was also the one who registered Prince George’s birth, The Telegraph reported. The queen had just arrived in London from Norfolk and was reportedly thrilled to see her newborn great-grandchild.

Other royal relatives who greeted the fourth-in-line-to-the-throne princess included the Prince of Wales and William’s brother, Prince Harry. Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton, as well as her sister Pippa Middleton, also made their way to Kensington Palace to visit the new mother and her new child.

Princess Charlotte was born on Saturday, 8:34 a.m., more than a hundred minutes after her mother Kate started going into labour and was admitted to the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital. She was safely delivered, weighing 8 lbs. 3 oz., which was 3 oz. less than Prince George when he arrived in July 2013. She dozed off through her first ever public appearance in the evening, covered in a shawl and a bonnet to protect her from the chill, while her parents and brother proudly showed her off as they walked out of the hospital.
