Royal Baby Watch, The Great Kate Wait, Royal Baby Wait, and more. There are a lot of different hashtags and monickers for these weeks of building anticipation and excited tension as we look forward to the arrival of Prince William and Kate’s second child. While there was a certain, special hubbub in the very first little prince’s birth, this second event has all number of highlights to set it apart. Not the least of which is the possibility of a family affair. Charles and Camilla are expected to visit, as well as Carole and Michael Middleton. But, will Prince William bring toddler George to the hospital, as he was brought 30 years ago to visit Diana when Harry was born? If he does, it will be the first official appearance that Prince George has made in the UK since he was presented on the very same steps as a newborn two years ago!
The clothes conscious everywhere are wondering, what will Kate wear? The Lindo Wing pictures make front pages across the globe, and of course, take a certain pride of place in the history books. For her first, iconic moment in 2013, Kate debuted a bespoke Jenny Packham in a baby blue to celebrate her little boy. Kate has a penchant for polka dots, but the whimsical print was also widely considered a nod to her late mother-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales, who wore a green polka dot piece to introduce baby William to the world in 1982. Asked if she had made the same dress in pink, to cover the possibility of a princess, Jenny Packham refused to spill the secret, saying, “I could not possibly comment.”
Just as with her appearance in 2013, Kate’s team will sweep into the Lindo to style her hair and have the glowing mother picture perfect for the presentation. We don’t have long to wait!
