The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge proudly stood outside the Lindo Wing on Monday 23 April to introduce their new baby boy to the world, and both parents showed off their protective sides as they stood in front of the awaiting press. Kate was heard saying to William that she was worried that the Prince – who was wrapped up in a blanket - was getting cold as they went back inside the hospital, while William told reporters that he was "delighted" and "very happy", although he has "thrice the worry now". The dad-of-three added: "We didn’t keep you waiting too long this time."

As ever, Kate looked incredible as she stood outside the hospital, dressed in a red lace dress by Jenny Packham, complete with a contrasting white peter pan collar and nude high heels. Her dress looked to have paid a touching nod to the late Princess Diana, who also wore a red and white ensemble when introducing Prince Harry to the world in September 1984. Kate also wore the colours of the England flag to mark St George's Day.
Earlier on in the day, the new Prince had been visited by his siblings, Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, who were picked up by their dad and taken to the hospital to meet the new arrival. The young royals delighted onlookers as they made their brief public appearance, with Charlotte confidently waving to the press, while George – who was dressed in his school uniform – appeared more shy.
