Pregnant Pippa Middleton arrives to see sister Kate and new royal baby boy at Kensington Palace

While the world is eagerly awaiting to find out his name, the aunt today drove straight to be by her older sister's side and to meet the 8lb 7oz Prince after his arrival yesterday.


The 34-year-old, who is pregnant herself, is one of the first family members to visit the newborn Prince.

Uncle Prince Harry is also expected to be one of the first to meet the tiny tot, along with his fiancée Meghan Markle.

The 33-year-old, who is now sixth-in-line to the throne after the arrival of the new Prince, is undoubtedly keen to meet his newest nephew – having previously spoken out of wanting to be the "fun uncle" to Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two.

The Queen will also be among those to first meet the newest royal – yesterday said to be "delighted" at the news.



The 92-year-old monarch's visit may not be straight away though, with the great-grandmother still at Windsor Castle with the Duke of Edinburgh as he recovers from a hip operation.

The family of five have appeared to be busy today, with dad Prince William seen leaving the palace this afternoon.

Other family members have shared their excitement at meeting the new baby with Prince Charles gushing in a statement: "We are both so pleased at the news.

"It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don't know how I am going to keep up with them."





Countess of Wessex, who is married to Prince Edward – the newborn's great uncle – told the Daily Mail: "The Jury’s out on that one. I don’t know, we’re all just going to have to wait and see."

She added: "I’m thrilled for them all, it’s lovely – really good news."

The new arrival has been marked by a number of celebrations, with bells ringing out at Westminster Abbey.

Gun salutes have also been fired in London by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and the Honourable Artillery Company to celebrate.

The despite the pomp and ceremony, the new family of five are settling in well, with the newborn Prince having already met his big brother and sister yesterday.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were yesterday taken to the Lindo wing by dad Prince William for a visit – with Wills saying the pair had been “very happy . . . delighted" to meet their baby brother.



Princess Charlotte particularly made an impression on the world's media, with the new big sister waving adorably at the waiting cameras.

One of the first questions undoubtedly on everyone's lips today is what the new royal's name will be – with the world waiting on bated breathe for the next announcement.

Prince William himself kept up the suspense, cheekily replying: "You will find out sooner or later" when asked yesterday.

Bookies have made Albert, Arthur, Jack and Fred the favoured names.

The dad appeared to be jubilant at the arrival of his second son, standing by the side of Kate as they introduced their third child to the world.

The proud parents beamed as they introduced their second son to the world, with Prince William gesturing to cameras with three fingers up, joking: "We are very happy, very delighted — thrice the worry now! We didn't keep you waiting too long this time."



Despite the five-and-a-half hours of labour — longer than Charlotte’s two-and-a-half hours — Kate looked amazing on the steps of the Lindo Wing seven hours later.

Wearing a red bespoke Jenny Packham dress, Gianvito Rossi nude heels and earrings loaned by the Queen, she smiled warmly as she carried her new son.

The vibrant red dress was seen as a nod to Princess Diana, with Kate beaming as she cradled her newborn and waved to cheering crowds.

The little Prince was wrapped up against the chilly wind, in a new bonnet and a £70 Nottingham lace shawl gifted from GH Hurt & Son, who also provided George and Charlotte’s shawls.

The world was left with bated breath when it was announced that Kate had gone into labour yesterday morning, with the media spotlight immediately turned to St Mary's Hospital.

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

Royal fans were left ecstatic after the happy news was shared – with many having been camped outside the hospital for weeks.
