Kate Middleton exited the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital on Saturday with husband Prince William, showing off their newborn daughter. The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to the royal baby at 8:34 a.m. GMT. Although she had waited one day before leaving the hospital with her firstborn, Prince George, the second time around, the family chose to go home the same day she gave birth.
The frenzy of interest was largely generated by the opportunity to see the second royal baby for the first time, but Kate Middleton fans couldn’t help but focus in on her post-baby fashion.
Kate was photographed wearing a yellow and white floral knee-length dress. The dress appeared almost ombre, starting off with yellow flowers at the top and turning white as the flowers faded away. She paired the dress with nude heels and dangling pearl earrings and had her stunning engagement ring on display.
Of course, this is second time that the post-childbirth style of the Duchess of Cambridge has been closely watched. When Kate left the Lindo Wing after the birth of Prince George in July 2013, many noticed that she paid tribute to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. At the time, Kate exited the building wearing a blue polka-dot dress. In 1982 after the birth of Prince William, Diana left the Lindo Wing in similar attire, wearing a green dress with polka dots.
Many were curious to learn whether Kate would again pay tribute to her husband’s mother. After the birth of Prince Harry in 1984, Diana met the public wearing a long, red jacket.
