Princess Diana and Prince Charles stood on the steps of The Lindo Wing just 24 hours after the 20-year-old Princess gave birth to Prince William.

Proud father, Charles, emerged first, safely cradling his newborn son in his arms. The Prince of Wales, who sported a smart suit for the momentous occasion, then passed William to Diana, who beamed as she showed him off the waiting photographers.

 

Dressed in a loose green polkadot dress, Diana gave the waiting media the first glimpse of Britain’s future King. The couple then got into a car and took the new arrival to Kensington Palace.

31 years on and Prince William will now stand at the doors of The Lindo Wing with his child, who will one day be King.

 

It is thought that William and Kate will also take their son to Kensington Palace, where the youngster will grow up, although new laws concerning car seats for babies will mean negotiating transport may be more difficult than it was for Charles and Diana.
