Kate looked radiant in a cornflower blue polka dot dress by British designer Jenny Packham, which sparked memories of when Princess Diana walked out of the Lindo Wing in a similar printed dress, cradling baby Prince William. Reality TV star Khloé was quick to pick up on this, posting a picture to Instagram that showed the similarites between the two outfits. "How phenomenal is this picture! Awww #PolkaDotPerfection," she captioned the touching snap.
Many commented on new mum Kate's fresh-faced appearance. "She looks amazing! Glowing," tweeted Cheryl Cole, while Poppy Delevingne said she looked "beautiful." Another celebrity tweet was Emmerdale actress Natalie Anderson, who excitedly wrote, "Actually cried watching the Royal baby!! 1 yr ago on next wk, we welcomed our beautiful Freddie Puds! #memories."
