Prince George and Prince William came to St. Mary’s Hospital in London to visit the royal baby girl, born on Saturday morning and we were graced with the first royal wave from the young Cambridge.
In matching blue sweaters and white shirts, father and son arrived to meet Prince George’s little sister — who still doesn’t have a name. William himself drove the family’s Range Rover, which he parked right in front of the hospital.
As he waved to the many fans and media that had assembled to get a first glimpse at the new royal baby, he got out of the car and took George out of his car seat. William put George down, so he could show the world how well he can walk, but the little one only took a few steps and then put his arms up for dad carry to him in the rest of the way.
As soon as Prince William waved to well-wishers, Prince George followed his dad’s lead and waved for the photographers who snapped their cameras capturing the endearing moment. We don’t know if Kate and her husband make the little one practice the royal wave at home, but he surely looked like a natural.
The 22-month-old prince seemed very curious and kept turning back to look at the crowd of well wishers and media that had been impatiently awaiting the arrival of his little sister, the Duchess of Cambridge. The newest royal is now the fourth in line to the throne, displacing her uncle, Prince Harry, to fifth place.
Later on in the evening, new mom Kate Middleton emerged with the royal baby, her new little princess, who was peacefully sleeping in her arms. Accompanied by Prince William, the trio left the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital to join Prince George at home in Kensington Palace, where the family will spend a few days before moving to their home in Anmer Hall.
