Looks like the little Prince of Cambridge, undoubtedly the world's most-photographed 3-day-old already, has gotten the heck out of Dodge.

After a quick visit from Grandma, a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge whisked the newly named George Alexander Louis to the in-laws' place outside of London, the BBC reported Thursday.

Kate's mom and dad live in Bucklebury, Berkshire, a village 55 miles west of the English capital.

After a morning of visitors to Kensington Palace, said to include Prince Harry, and Kate's sister Pippa Middleton, the UK's first family were seen leaving with their newborn at 1 p.m. local time.

That was after the Queen, 87, keen to meet her new great-grandson before starting her annual summer vacation in Scotland, popped in to Kensington Palace for a half-hour, CBS wrote.

The English monarch reportedly made the short trip from Buckingham Palace in a chauffeur-driven Bentley.

The BBC's royal correspondent Luisa Baldini said it was not known how long the duke and duchess, along with George Alexander Louis, would stay at George's maternal grandparents' home.

However, Kate is known to be close to her parents, Carole and Michael, with the Daily Beast making the bold predicton in a headline that "George Will be Growing Up More Middleton Than Windsor".

Even Prince William has been quoted as saying how comfortable he feels around them.

The BBC quoted Baldini as saying of the Middleton's Bucklebury mansion:

"The house is large and private enough for the duke and duchess to bond with their newborn son."

The Daily Beast called the couple's decision to depart London a day after leaving hospital with their newborn, an "almost revolutionary statement of intent".

Police had set up a three-week long exclusion zone around the 17-acre Middleton property in Bucklebury.

The Daily Beast even went as far as to say the duchess had "made it clear that she intends to live there, surrounded by her family, until William finishes up his job in Wales and comes back to London."
