The eyes of the world were trained on the front doors of the Lindo Wing at St Mary's hospital on Monday, when the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her third child.
Fans, and the general public witnessed all of the most adorable moments of the day, as Catherine, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and the couple’s new baby son, greeted the waiting press outside the doors of the maternity ward.
There was Princess Charlotte’s adorable wave to the cameras as she headed to see her new baby brother. And of course, the moment everyone was waiting for – when we got to meet the new royal baby.
But there’s one moment that appears to have slipped past the watching public – which showed off sibling George and Charlotte’s adorable, close bond.
After dad Prince William leads his children up the stairs of the hospital by the hand, he lets them go, to walk ahead of him to see their mum.
And as the pair came together to walk down the corridor, cameras just caught protective older brother Prince George sweetly puts his arm around his younger sister, after the walk to the hospital door.
The adorable moment is seen just second before the doors close on the Lindo Wing, and appears to have escaped most of the world’s watchers. How sweet!
The gesture was made even more adorable given how nervous the little Prince seemed when facing the world’s media. Perhaps he needed some reassurance from his younger sister too?
Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have not often spoken of their children’s bond, it’s clear in photos of the siblings that they get along well.
Prince William has previously revealed that his children are also the bosses in their Kensington Palace home. At a recent event, he confessed, “George rules the roost and Charlotte isn’t far behind”.
George and Charlotte, William, Catherine and the new baby have now returned to their Kensington Palace home, to start their life as a family of five.
Although it’s expected that the Duchess will take some months for maternity leave, it’s thought that she will definitely be attending Prince Harry’s wedding on 19th to Meghan Markle.
Prince William however made a break in his paternity leave, to attend an Anzac Day remembrance service at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday. Whilst there, he was heard making jokes about the new baby’s name – suggesting they might well call him Jerry, or Alexander.
The Prince also confirmed that both mum and baby were doing well, saying, “Sleeping’s going reasonably well so far, so he’s behaving himself which is good.”
