Charlotte’s cute wave steals hearts
PRINCE George and Princess Charlotte appeared at the Lindo wing to meet their baby brother as the Cambridges upheld an adorable royal tradition.
The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, left the London hospital just after 4pm local time, smiling and saying, "Back in a minute."
He returned around an hour later with his two older children, who both dressed up for the occasion.
Princess Charlotte, 2, stole hearts as she smiled and waved to cameras, wearing a pale blue dress with navy cardigan, buckled black shoes and white ankle socks.
Prince George, 4, also looked sweet, but more serious in a blue shirt, navy V-neck jumper with red trimming and shorts.
The two children entered the hospital holding the hands of their beaming father.
In 2015, William brought Prince George to the hospital to meet his new sister, Princess Charlotte, when she was born in May.
The 21-month-old was dressed in blue and gave his own nervous wave to crowds waiting outside the hospital in a moment that delighted royal watchers around the world.
The young prince followed in the footsteps of his father who had made the same trip with his nanny 30 years earlier to meet his new brother, Prince Harry, on September 16, 1984.
UK media at the time reported how Prince William, dressed in red shorts, a white shirt with red embroidery, white ankle socks and traditional leather bar shoes, ran down the corridor into Dianaâ€™s arms as she called his name.
He was said to be "very, very excited about seeing his new brother" and held his hand as he lay in the cot before being taken home by his nanny.
This introduction could prove more difficult however, given there are two royal children to manage.
Following both of her births so far, the Duchess of Cambridge has stood on the steps outside the wing showing off the new baby to the worldâ€™s press gathered across the road.
The birth comes at a time when the royal family is riding a wave of popularity following the Queen's 92nd birthday and the upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
