At 11.01am this morning, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a little prince. The newest member of the royal family is William and Kate’s third child and sixth in the order of succession to the throne.

Just hours after giving birth, Kate was ready to leave the hospital and introduce her baby prince to the world.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant and perfectly put together in a bespoke, knee-length shift dress with white lace collar by her go-to British designer, Jenny Packham.

The bold frock disguised what was left of her baby bump with a loose fitting shift silhouette, 3/4 length sleeves, and a contrast lace collar.  Her dress reminds me of the dress Princess Diana wore when leaving the hospital with newborn Prince Harry.

This is the third time the Duchess has commissioned a frock by designer Jenny Packham to wear when leaving hospital.

You may recall that Kate wore a blue polka dot, crepe de chine frock when she left the hospital with Prince George in 2013 and a bespoke lemon and white floral buttercup print dress (Packham’s SS15 line) for Charlotte’s birth in 2015.

Kate teamed the red shift dress with a pair of her favorite Gianvito Rossi ‘Gianvito 105’ Praline Suede Pumps (£495).

Completing her look, the Duchess wore the Queen’s round diamond stud and pearl drop pendant earrings and her gorgeous sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
