Updated: The princess has a name!! Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
I woke up Saturday morning and checked social media first thing like I always do and BOOM! My Facebook feed was blowing up over news that Kate was in the hospital in labor with the new royal baby!!
I swear to you not even two minutes after I had posted something about it on my blog’s Facebook page it was announced that she had just delivered! It’s times like these when I truly enjoy the time difference between Arkansas and London, it sure made all that waiting go really fast! LOL!
You have no idea how excited I was!! You better bet that if I lived in London I would have been one of the crazies stalking the hospital and would have been there to take my own pics…instead I stalked Twitter and Facebook all day for updates of any kind. I’m weird, I know.
Prince William and Kate slipped into the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s around 6am and the baby was born at 830. Talk about a fast delivery. I’m just jealous that hospitals in the US don’t look like that, maybe I would like to go to work more if they did?
Later that afternoon Prince William brought Prince George by to see the baby. Isn’t he just adorable??
I still remember how excited I was for his birth. I blogged about it of course…LOL!
I love that the William and Kate are keeping current and announced the delivery on Twitter but I also love that they keep with tradition and still had the easel out with the actual birth announcement on it. That is actually the same easel used with William and Harry were born too. How fun!
And you know who else was there too? The same town crier that announced Prince George’s birth! Now I don’t think this guy is officially the town drier or anything but who cares? He’s good at it!
At around 6pm William, Kate, and their sweet baby girl left the hospital and headed home. How awesome is that? Not even 12 hours after she gives birth Kate gets all dolled up and heads home! She’s like a magical pregnancy unicorn (name that movie) or something!
How adorable are they leaving the hospital holding hands? I can only hope that one day after I have a baby I look that good!!
Cheers to the new baby princess and the new family!!
What do you think about the new Royal Baby??
Are you as Royal Family obsessed as I am??
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I didn’t even know she was pregnant. Someone posted something about her having a baby on FB over the weekend and I was like WHAT?
I don’t know how she looks that amazing after just having the baby the same day! She’s amazing. HA!! Seriously, aren’t they just the cutest family?!?!
Christy Maurer says
LOL I am working on a Royal Baby post right now too! I adore this! That baby is so cute as is her big brother :)
I wanna know how she left the hospital that soon!?! That’s the part of all of this that amazes me lol…
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
Aww. They look so happy! Being a mom is great. I hope the paparazi don’t ruin it for her.
Fi Ní Neachtáin says
It really was lovely news, I just wish people could have left her alone for awhile to bond with her new daughter. She now has a name too, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana :)
I’m in awe over how good she looks! I sure didn’t look like that after giving birth. The princess is a beauty!
R U S S says
Same as Robin, I also didnt know that she was pregnant. Lol. But it’s always a delight to have a new baby in the family, much more a princess. I just learned that she gave birth over CNN.
lisa @bitesforbabies says
Would you believe that I wasn’t really following the pregnancy and birth details?! Was I the only one who didn’t?! lol!
Liz Mays says
I didn’t know too much about this. They must be so happy to have a new family member with them.
Donna Ward says
Hi Ricci – both these babies are beautiful – and yes I agree – why do our hospitals look all plain and well hospital like! lol – I think this was a great post – fab pictures and your comments are fun
I love them. Absolutely LOVE. my grandma was born in London so I’ve always had a little fascination. I am obsessed over the name. Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. I’m so happy they added Diana. Such a beautiful tribute.
Everyone on social media must be psyched to find out how the baby looks like. The birth announcement made fans especially thrilled and excited!

She looked amazing after giving birth. I love the name of their daughter. So precious!
Congrats to them! I didn’t know she had the baby. She’s very beautiful!
I’m amazed at how good she looked after giving birth! And wearing heels! Dang haha!
I can not get over that little prince. He is a charming little boy. He stole the show walking into the hospital with his father. This was a much anticipated arrival of a little Princess, and the name- BEAUTIFUL!
Jessica Simms says
Wow she looks amazing after having a baby geeze I would love to look that good, the baby is so adorable OMG I’m having baby fever.
Ann Bacciaglia says
The new princess is so adorable. I love those cheeks. I was so excited to hear that she was born and was doing well. I love her name.
Bonnie @ wemake7 says
I don’t really follow stuff like this, don’t even watch tv lol. I did hear that she was pregnant again though. I can’t believe how great she looks and going home so quickly after giving birth.
She does look absolutely amazing. And what a beautiful family. I love happy news. :)
When I heard that Kate was already in the hospital, I was like, “I hope it’s a girl!” And so I was really delighted to hear the news. And Charlotte is such a lovely name. Love it!
Awe how cute. I love seeing baby pictures and happy couples like this one. This baby is so cute
I’ll admit that I barely pay attention to the Royal family or any news really. They do seem like they’re down-to-earth people, though!
I love watching everything about them, but missed the hoopla when Charlotte was born. I’m so glad you posted all these fantastic photos!!
Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies says
Anything to do with babies and interested! My family has been interested in the royal family for many years and it’s neat to follow what’s happening with all of them!
First of all, she looks gorgeous. Especially since she JUST had a baby… Whats up with that? lol. Second of all, yay for a princess!
I love her name. I think it’s perfect for a pretty princess. I think Mom is beautiful too!
Shannon gurnee says
She looks absolutely amazing after her second baby! That is such an exciting time when anyone has a baby but loved that we could be a part of hers!
