The Royal Wave! Prince George Reports for Big Brother Duty as He Arrives to Meet His New Baby Sister

Prince George is already on big brother duty! The 21-month-old joined his mother, Princess Kate, and father, Prince William, at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London to meet his new baby sister.

William, 32, left to pick up George from his nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo's care at the family's home in Kensington Palace just before 4 p.m. BST, and brought him back to St. Mary's to greet his new sister.

George, whose blond hair was neatly parted, was wearing a navy blue cardigan, shorts and socks. (Matching with his dad, who was wearing a blue sweater.)

Proud dad William carefully lifted his son out of black Range Rover and put him down to walk up the steps on his own, but the young royal raised his arms to be picked up. William dutifully picked George up and carried up the steps he gently prompted George to wave for the crowd. William then kissed him on the head as they made their way inside.





The visit echoes Prince William's own to greet his then-newborn brother Prince Harry in September 1984.

George's visit was a short one – the palace confirmed that he left the hospital and returned home to Kensington Palace before his parents introduced their daughter to the world.
