After being lifted out of the car and put on the ground to walk, George stretched out his arms to be lifted back up by his father before offering a timid wave to the gathered media and fans.
The new princess was born at 8.34am today weighing 8lbs and 3oz less than three hours after the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to hospital.
Both Kate, 33, and her newborn daughter were said to have been ‘doing well’ when the news came shortly after 11am today. The baby, whose name is not yet known, will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess of Cambridge.
As he was lifted out of his father’s car this afternoon cheers erupted for Prince George who has not made a public appearance in the UK since his own birth in 2013.
The Royal baby announcement
After walking a few steps holding his father’s hand, the one-year-old stretched out his arms to be picked back up by his father before being encouraged to wave to the gathered crowds.
Beaming with pride, William was seen mouthing ‘good boy’ in his son’s ear before giving him a tender kiss on the head. The pair then disappeared behind the hospital doors to reunite with Kate and the new princess in a scene reminiscent of Prince Harry’s birth in 1984.
Prince Charles held a toddling William’s hand as they walked up the Lindo Wing steps where Diana gave birth.
