The popular Royal couple, Princess Kate and Prince William, have formally introduced their newborn daughter “Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge” to the world. The young Royals stood alongside each other as they left the hospital earlier today before the name was revealed, Kate having just given birth at St. Mary’s Hospital.
Shortly after the birth, the young Princess was wrapped-up and was quickly traveling to a Royal escort with her parents, both of them beaming with joy waving to the crowds as they left the hospital.
The white shawl the baby left the hospital in is sure to be a hit with new parents, it came from GH Hurt and Son Ltd., and the little princess sported an ivory bonnet while she appeared to be sleeping through her first royal introduction.
Kate gave birth to the young Princess just 10 hours before leaving the hospital. The Princess was a healthy 8-lbs., 3-oz at the time of her birth. For our readers that love everything Kate-approved, her outfit consisted of a silk shift-dress with a small buttercup print by Jenny Packhamr, her hair of course was done in the hospital by Amanda Cook Tucker. Jenny Packham also designed the dress that Kate wore when she left the hospital with young Prince George at the time of his birth.
As for the name, it was not released until HRM Queen Elizabeth met the newborn. While leaving the hospital, the couple thanked the hospital staff in an official statement reading, “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.” It was the same medical team on-hand that delivered Prince George, at the same hospital, on July 22, 2013.
As for the throne, the young princess is technically fourth in line of succession. She follows after Princes Charles, William and George in accordance to tradition.
The official announcement read, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.”
