Since the birth of their baby girl on Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have sent out thank yous to people around the world who congratulated them. They said they were “hugely grateful” for all the warm wishes they have received.
The name of the baby princess is till not known. The day after she was born dozens of friends and family members flocked to the Royal Palace to see her, with Pippa and her mother Carole Middleton being the first to arrive. They were followed by Prince William's father, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla.
The princess was born weighing 8lbs and 3oz in the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London. “The Duke and Duchess are hugely grateful for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said. “It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter.” Prince Harry said, as quoted in the statement, that he can't wait to see her, adding she is beautiful.
The Queen did not immediately visit her newly born, fifth great-grandchild on Saturday because she was spending the Bank Holiday in Norfolk. She did, however, wear pink that day to celebrate the fact that a little princess was born.
Even though only hours passed after she had given birth, the Duchess of Cambridge was as elegant as ever when she exited the hospital, wearing a fresh spring dress by Jenny Packham. She wore the same designer when she left the hospital with Prince George less than two years ago.
