Prince George and Princess Charlotte smile and wave at the cameras as they arrive to meet new royal baby

The royal siblings walked hand-in-hand with dad Prince William as they arrived to the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London to meet the newest addition to the Royal family.

Confident Charlotte, 2, smiled and waved enthusiastically to the cameras as she walked up the steps to the £10,000-a-night maternity ward this afternoon.

Prince George, 4, arrived dressed in school uniform appearing more wary of the world's media.

It is the first time in history that a boy will not precede his older sister in line of the succession, with Princess Charlotte remaining fourth, behind brother George but in front of her new brother.

While the royal siblings visited their mum and newborn brother in hospital their grandmother Carole Middleton was snapped buying potential baby supplies in nearby west-London.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to the healthy baby boy weighing 8lbs, 7oz at 11:01am.

The royal family are said to be delighted with the news, with the Queen having been informed of the arrival of the fifth-in-line to the throne.


Speculation now surrounds what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will name their third child with the likes of Arthur and Philip among the bookies favourites.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs.

"The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz.

"The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."

They added: "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news."
