Sumon Ahmed: The Royal family youngest princess who newly born, her photograph has published.
After proudly showing off the baby princess to the world as they left the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in London yesterday just 10 hours after her birth, the couple returned to Kensington Palace.
William and Kate announced the name of their first child, Prince George, the day after the royal couple left hospital in July 2013, so could do the same for their daughter.
The Cambridges are expected to remain at the palace for a few days before they travel to their country retreat, Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
Their daughter, who is fourth in line to the throne, was born at 8.34am on Saturday, weighing 8lbs 3oz.
The moment William and Kate emerged through the doors of the Lindo Wing, supporters cheered and photographers and camera crews captured the first images of the baby girl.
Kate, 33, held the princess who was wrapped in a white shawl and a cream woollen bonnet, tied under her chin. She appeared to be fast asleep.
William, who had been at his wife’s side during the birth, spoke of his joy following the birth, telling the press he was very happy.
The Queen, who attended a military event at Richmond Castle, in North Yorkshire, was dressed appropriately in pink on the day her fifth great-grandchild, who was overdue, was born.
There were also words of congratulations from party leaders who broke briefly from campaigning for the General Election.
In celebration, London’s Tower Bridge turned pink as did fountains in Trafalgar Square.
Prince George, now 21 months old, was taken by his father to the private maternity unit to meet his baby sister.
It was the first time George has been officially seen in public in the UK since he left the same hospital himself as a newborn nearly two years ago.
