How Kate’s first appearance with the new baby compares to George and Charlotte’s debuts?


William and Kate’s third born is here. The couple welcomed their third child on Monday, April 23 at 11:01 AM. The baby was delivered in the Lindo Wing.

Well, there are a few key differences. 

Just like when Prince George and Princess Charlotte were born, the Duke of Cambridge, William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate stopped for a few quick photos in front of the hospital.

Then after the photo session they returned to Kensington Palace with their new prince. This time, Kate wore a red dress with a white lace collar by Jenny Packham. It makes this the third time she’s worn a bespoke dress by the British designer for her post-birth appearances.

Paying your regards to Princess Diana.

The red dress Middleton wore, appeared to be a nod to the outfit Princess Diana wore when she introduced Prince Harry to the world in 1984. Both dresses were bright red with a white Peter Pan collar.

When Princess Charlotte arrived in May 2015, Kate opted for another pastel Jenny Packham number. But, her yellow dress in a buttercup print had longer sleeves to accommodate for the cooler spring weather just like the red dress she wore two days back.

The clothes worn by the new born.

Princess Charlotte wore a knit cap when she went out into the world for the first time.While Prince George enjoyed the July weather sans-hat on his first outing. Both royal babies were swaddled in a white G.H. Hurt & Son soft wool baby shawl.

Since the weather in London was rather cold and windy right now, the new prince also wore a knit cap and it appears to be the same G.H. Hurt & Son baby shawl as his siblings.

Last but not the least, about the mother.

The previous two times the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with her newborns she wore light-coloured heels. But, her Dune sling-back espadrilles were better suited for the July weather than the leather Jimmy Choo pumps she wore to introduce Charlotte.

This very time, she went for neutral shoes with her third born. She opted to re-wear what appears to be her Gianvito Rossi pumps in taupe suede.
