With a new little princess to present to the world, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will exit St Mary’s Hospital to great fanfare – and it’s said to be happening today. Fashion fans are ready to say goodbye to her stylish maternity wardrobe and see how Kate dresses her daughter!
However, there is still one more special outfit left to make its debut – her ‘leaving hospital’ ensemble.
The eyes of the world will be trained on the royal as she appears on the famous steps of the Lindo Wing carrying her second baby.
It will be an iconic moment in British history – the pictures of William and Kate introducing Prince George to the world in 2013 went around the world in minutes.
Last time, Kate wore a bespoke cornflower blue Jenny Packham dress with polka dots – an outfit that was praised for its feminine fit.
Many wondered whether Kate had matched the colour to the sex of her first child. If so, it’s possible she will wear pink or blue again this time round.
The striking brunette is bound to opt for a maternity style, so the chosen dress may come from Kate’s favourite maternity brand Seraphine.
It’s possible that Kate might recycle one of her dresses – she is a particular fan of the label’s floral Florrie print dress – but considering how momentous the appearance will be, it’s more likely that she will wear a new creation.
She will probably pair whichever dress she does choose with her trusty LK Bennett wedges and, of course, her signature glossy blowdry.
The polka dot blue dress Kate wore to leave the hospital with Prince George bore a strong resemblance to the green polka dot dress that William’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, wore to leave the hospital with William in 1982.
After Diana gave birth to Prince Harry two years later, just like Kate, she introduced the little one to the world wearing a red dress, red coat and matching shoes.
With this in mind, Kate may well follow suit and opt for something in red, or another bright colour.
