Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed a baby girl Saturday at St. Mary's Hospital in London, and introduced their precious little one to the world as they stepped outside the hospital Saturday evening.
Only hours after giving birth, the Duchess of Cambridge was glowing as she waved to the crowd with her husband by her side, cradling their daughter with her other arm. For their first public appearance with the princess, Kate wore a floral yellow and white shift dress and heels (!), while Prince William – who was also all smiles – wore a blue sweater with a white button down shirt underneath.
Meanwhile, their adorable daughter appeared to sleep through it all, wrapped up in a white blanket and a knit cap. According to the BBC, the couple's son, Prince George, met his little sis just hours after Kate gave birth. Prince William was spotted walking back into the hospital with the 21-month old, who gave fans standing outside a wave before they headed in.
As Prince William left the hospital briefly to pick up his son, he reportedly told the crowds he and Kate were "very happy," according to the outlet. Kensington Palace also released a statement on their behalf, saying, "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."
Prince William's father, Prince Charles, said he was hoping for a granddaughter and that he and the Duchess of Cornwall were "absolutely delighted" about her arrival.
Congrats to the couple!
