The newborn princess spent her first night at Kensington Palace with her parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and older brother Prince George.
Born yesterday at 8.34am, the baby girl was brought home by Kate and William at around 6pm after being presented on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital.
Wrapped in a soft white shawl, the princess slept soundly through the cheers and flashbulbs of hundreds of well-wishers who had gathered outside the hospital following the news of her arrival.
Earlier in the day her older brother, 21-month-old Prince George, offered a shy wave to the world’s media as he was carried into the hospital by his proud father to meet his sister for the first time.
The princess, whose name has not been revealed, will remain at Apartment 1A today to meet relatives with the Queen, Prince Charles and Kate’s parents expected to visit. Later this week the family will decamp to Anmer Hall, their secluded Norfolk estate.
