The birth of a prince

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aka Will and Kate, welcome a third child into their family with the arrival of a baby boy on 23rd April 2018 at 11.01am.

UPDATE! The prince has a name! Welcome to the world Prince Louis Arthur Charles. His title is His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

The baby boy, who is fifth in line for the throne, weighed 8lbs 7oz at birth (3.8kg) and both mother and baby were reported to be doing well. Siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte have been to visit their new baby brother.

Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, who herself is expecting a baby in June, talked about the presents that New Zealand are sending to the new royal. And yes, the good old Buzzy Bee does make an appearance.

Many people commented on how amazing Kate looked, bravely fronting up to the world’s media just seven hours after giving birth, in a dress by designer Jenny Packham. C’mon … we all looked that great, right?

Perhaps this snapshot from The Unmumsy Mum is a little more realistic for those of us without an entourage.

    I remember this day happening as everyone, well almost everyone had a meme on Facebook how everyone else who gave birth actually looks like. Now everyone wishes they had a stylist, hair dresser etc after giving birth and take flawless photos…

    She looks incredible and such a beautiful smile that says she is smitten with her new little one. We all joke about how we looked after birth but we don’t all have a team of stylists and i for one wouldn’t want a team or have to stand in front of a sea of cameras mere hours after giving birth!

    She looks so amazing you wander how any mum could look this good after giving birth and wanting to be all dressed up for a photo with lots of people. It’s an exhausting effort child birth she is just a super lady to do this.

    Doesn’t she just look absolutely amazing for someone that just not long gave birth hours before then standing with her precious baby like it’s a walk in the park. Gosh I wish I looked that amazing after giving birth. Good on them I say. Bringing another handsome little one into this world.

    Awesome 🙂 She looks well (but then who wouldn’t with a stylist, hairdresser and makeup artist to sort you out lol). You would want to look your best in front of the whole world though!!! Now everyone waits in anticipation for the name of the wee sausage! 🙂
