You can count little Prince George another one of the millions enthralled with Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. The adorable tot was so excited to visit his newborn baby sis. How sweet!
Sure, everyone and their mother was waiting with bated breath for the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s second child, but there was one person especially anxious to meet the bundle of joy: Prince George! The 21-month-old toddler was clearly ecstatic when rolling up to the hospital on May 2 to see his little sis for the first time. Is there anything in the world cuter than this?
Prince George On Princess Charlotte: ‘Very Excited’ To Meet His Sister
George’s grin on Charlotte’s birthday wasn’t just for show — he was incredibly excited to see his sister for the first time, a friend of the royal family said to US Weekly.
“George was aware that he would soon have a new brother or sister and has been excited throughout the pregnancy,” the source said. “He might have been a little shy around the new baby, but I heard everything went well. He’s great around other children. He’s a very curious boy.”
What a sweetheart!
Anyone with younger siblings knows the utter responsibility that’s now fallen on little George’s shoulders. He’s a big brother for the first time, and he’s taking this very seriously! Think about it, she’s not just a baby that he has to protect when he’s not tending to his adoring fans or being an absolute fashionista — she’s a teensy tiny princess. That’s a lot to handle, kid!
George was all smiles on his way to St. Mary’s Hospital in London to visit his mom and brand new sister Charlotte, while perched upon his dad’s hip. A thrilled wave to the crowd before heading into the maternity wing got his message across quickly: I’m going to see my new sister!
Although George might not have been too concerned, the rest of the world was waiting (and let’s be honest, betting) on what William and Kate would wind up naming their darling little daughter. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went with a beautiful choice: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
The name honors several family members important to the couple at once. Firstly, Charlotte is the female form of Charles, a nod, of course, to William’s father Prince Charles. Charlotte is also Pippa Middleton‘s (Kate’s sister) middle name. Elizabeth is after Queen Elizabeth II, while Diana, perhaps the most touching of all, is a reference to William’s late mother Princess Diana.
We love how Diana was honored in this special way!
