PRINCE George and Princess Charlotte arrived at St Mary’s Hospital to meet their new baby brother for the very first time yesterday – a royal baby tradition that evokes memories of Prince William meeting a baby Prince Harry in 1984.
Yesterday’s Royal Baby birth has delighted the nation – but Prince George and Princess Charlotte are surely more excited than most to get a first glimpse of their new sibling.
Earlier yesterday Prince William, who was with the Duchess of Cambridge during the birth, sped away from the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s to pick up George, four, and Charlotte, two.
He returned a short time later with the pair and the three quickly rushed inside – but not before betraying their nerves and excitement on the way in.
George, dressed in his navy school uniform, looked serious as he walked inside – a sharp contrast to 2015 when he waved and smiled as he was carried by his father in to meet Princess Charlotte.
Three years ago the 21-month-old looked excited – if slightly nervous – as he first walked, and then was carried, into St Mary’s Hospital.
Yesterday it was Charlotte, now a big sister, who could hardly contain her joy as she strolled inside in a blue dress, waving happily to the watching crowd.
