The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child into the world.


Liftable reported Kate Middleton paid tribute to Prince William’s mother in her own way when she made her first public appearance after giving birth to a baby boy.

Duchess Catherine was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, London, in the early hours of Monday, April 23. Soon, at 11:01 a.m. local time, she welcomed her third child and the fifth in line to the British throne.

She had her husband, Prince William, by her side. He left the hospital at 4 p.m. to fetch their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. 

Shortly after the older children left the hospital, the mother and the newborn made their first public appearance.


As is customary, Kate left the safety of the hospital for the sanctuary of her home. However, put on her best face and greeted the people, accompanied by Prince William.


Known for her excellent fashion sense and a careful amalgamation of Diana-esque styles, she looked stunning in her ensemble.

She had worn blue and yellow for her previous trips from the hospital. However, this time she paid a tribute to her mother-in-law with a vibrant red dress with a lace collar, while her child was wrapped in a similar lacy blanket.

Like always, the graceful mother completed her look with heels as she never makes an appearance without them.


Many people may not have noticed the fact that the outfit bore a striking resemblance to another Royal mother from years ago. Princess Diana too had made an appearance with her newborn son shortly after giving birth in a similar dress.

She wore a dress with a similar shade of red, also sporting a white collar and her child wrapped in a soft, white blanket.

It is hard to say if the choice of the outfit was intentional with Kate continuing the late Princess’ legacy in many other ways. 


Meanwhile, keeping with the tradition, the Buckingham Palace made the official announcement by placing a framed notice on a ceremonial easel of the palace.

The baby boy has no name yet, although reports suggest that it will be a strong, English, family name with some hinting at Alexander or Philip.

The proud father is not the one to give away as he only said, “You’ll find out soon enough.”
