The Duchess, (and new mommy!), looked lovely while showing off her new bundle of joy — her beautiful baby boy! The Duchess opted for a beautiful, blue bespoke polka dot dress by one of her go-to designers, Jenny Packham, a rep confirmed to HollywoodLife exclusively. What did you think of her outfit?
Kate Middleton and Prince William finally welcomed their royal baby boy into the world on July 22 — and the Duchess looked divine while leaving the hospital! The Royal couple color-coordinated, wearing blue outfits, while showing off their newborn son. Kate showed off her baby on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital on July 23, allowing the world to get their first look at the royal baby — and the new mommy was, of course, camera ready for the occasion in one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham! Kate selected a bespoke baby blue polka dot dress and sported one of her signature blowouts for the special day. As always, she looked appropriate and effortlessly chic — and the couple looked so excited and happy to share their newborn with the world!
Kate Middleton’s Dress After Baby:
Opting for one of her go-to designers, Kate looked lovely on the steps. We think it’s so sweet that Kate wore polka dots for her first official appearance, especially since Princess Diana also wore a polka dot dress when she stood on the exact same steps 31 years ago with Prince William in her arms. “I can confirm that The Duchess is wearing bespoke Jenny Packham. It is a cornflower blue crepe de chine,” the designer’s team told HollywoodLife. Since it was designed specifically for Kate we don’t know how much it cost or if there are plans to recreate the pretty frock at this time.
She also wore her blue engagement ring — it was such a nice tribute to Prince William’s late mother! Additionally, William wore a blue striped shirt which matched his wife’s outfit.
Despite the fact that Kate just gave birth yesterday she looked so stylish on the steps before ducking into a Range Rover and driving off with her husband and baby. Kate and William were all smiles — we’re so excited for them!
How Princess Diana Welcomed William:
Princess Diana posed for pictures with her newborn baby, Prince William, in 1982, just days after giving birth. On the day Princess Diana and Prince Charles posed with baby William, Diana donned a green and white Catherine Walker polka dot frock that flowed around her figure. The dress featured a low collar and had a loose bow tied at the neckline. She finished off the chic ensemble with a pair of comfy yet stylish burgundy ballet flats. Diana actually recycled her dress for this occasion! She first donned this frock just two weeks prior when she attended an engagement in Angelesey, which now belongs to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Prince William was christened in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace on August 4, 1982. The ceremony was given by Dr. Robert Runcie, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
