Kate Middleton: Duchess made subtle nod to Charlotte at Louis’ first public appearance

Kate Middleton and Prince William, 37, have three children together. They are the parents of Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one. The Duchess made a sentimental link between the children when posing for pictures outside hospital.

After the birth of a new child, members of the Royal Family will often appear outside the hospital for a quick photo call.

This is a tradition that has been followed by members of the family including Sarah Ferguson and Princess Diana.

The Duchess of Cambridge posed with her newborn outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

All three of her children were born there but Kate went a step further to link the birth of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

During her first appearance in 2015, Princess Charlotte wore a white handmade bonnet.

The same item was worn by Prince Louis when he made his debut in the world in 2018.

The delicate item is thought to have been a gift from the nanny of the Duke and Duchess.

Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo reportedly joined the family as a nanny in March 2014 when Prince George was eight months old.

Although both the royals wore the garment, Kate opted to style it different both times.

Princess Charlotte was reportedly seen wearing the cap in the opposite way to how it was designed to be worn.

Three years later, Prince Louis wore the design the right way round.

Recently, Kate opened up about how she felt posing for photo calls so soon after giving birth.

Speaking on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast, Happy Mum, Happy Baby, she was asked how she felt standing for the public photos.

She said: “Yeah, slightly terrifying, slightly terrifying, I’m not going to lie.”

However, Kate explained why she put her fears aside to follow the tradition.

The Duchess added: “Everyone had been so supportive, and both William and I were really conscious that this was something that everyone was excited about.

“And, you know, we’re hugely grateful for the support that the public had shown us, and actually for us to be able to share that joy and appreciation with the public, I felt was really important.

“But equally it was coupled with a newborn baby, and inexperienced parents, and the uncertainty of what that held, so there were all sorts of mixed emotions.”

The royal stepped outside on the same day as giving birth with each of her three children.
