Duke and Duchess show off royal baby
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have given the world a glimpse of their newborn daughter.
The Duchess, 33, showed off the tot – who was born this morning (02.05.15) at 8.34am BST – as she exited the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, along with her husband, Prince William.
Dressed in a floral yellow and white Jenny Packham dress, the mother-of-two looked lovingly at her as-yet-unnamed daughter, but declined to make a comment and quickly hopped into a black Range Rover along with her husband and child.
After quickly showing the sleeping child to the public, the couple – who wed in 2011 before having their first child, Prince George, in July 2013 – set off to Kensington Palace, where they are expected to stay for at least one night along with their 21-month-old son, before they return to their home, Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
Their exit from the hospital follows a statement posted to the Kensington Palace Twitter account earlier today, in which they thanked people around the world for their messages of congratulations, as well as staff who helped deliver the princess.
The statement read: “Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank all staff at the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received.
“They would also like to thank everyone for their warm wishes.”
The arrival of the as-yet un-named baby – which is fourth in line for the throne – was announced at 11.00am BST.
