We weren't certain that Prince George and his little sister, Princess Charlotte, would make a public appearance after their brother's birth. After all, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very protective of their children's privacy.
However, after staying by his wife's side as she gave birth to their third child, Prince William left the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital to arrange a very important meeting.
"Back in a minute," a chipper William told members of the media, all of whom had staked out a spot across the street.
After Prince George finished school for the day at Thomas's Battersea, William picked him and Charlotte up at Kensington Palace so they could meet their new brother.
When the trio arrived at the maternity wing's entrance, George looked a bit shy, but Charlotte was kind of loving what she saw.
The new baby was born this morning at 11:01 a.m. local time, weighing 8 lbs., 7 oz. Just before 6:00 p.m., Catherine and William emerged from the Lindo Wing with their new baby. According to royal reporter Emily Andrews, Catherine wore a red Jenny Packham dress, the same designer she chose when leaving the hospital after having George and Charlotte.
Catherine only stayed overnight at the Lindo Wing when she had George in July 2013. Hours after Charlotte's May 2015 birth, she was discharged and headed home to Kensington Palace with William.
