Twitter meltdown: Princess Charlotte steals the show at brother's birth

However, yesterday she had waited at home with her nanny, Maria Borallo, all day before heading for the hospital.

Kensington Palace announced that the baby boy had been born at 11.01 on the morning of April 23, 2018. From there Kensington Palace tweeted out the news and an easel with all the birth details will be placed outside of Buckingham Palace before the end of the day.

The Duke of Cambridge left the London hospital about 4pm local time, smiling and saying "Back in a minute".

Princess Charlotte melted hearts around the world today as she warmly greeted fans with an adorable royal hand wave out the front of London's St Mary's Hospital.

As she and her brother held their father's hand to walk up the Lindo Wing, royal photographers started shouting "TURN, TURN" to Prince William in the hope he would pose outside of the hospital door with his children.

THE floral smocked dress worn by Princess Charlotte as she went to meet her new baby brother has sold out online.

So far, people can't get enough of Charlotte's adorable waves to the crowd, calling her "so cute" and "adorable".

Dressed in his school uniform, Prince George appeared more pensive.

With the Duke and Duchess involving their children in both royal and life engagements, the princess has not been one to shy away from the camera. But Charlotte has always displayed confidence beyond her age. 'It was a lovely day in London and the streets were full of fans who couldn't believe they saw Charlotte and George as well as the much-awaited new royal bub!'

Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013 a son would leap over an older daughter in the line of succession.

Previously, male siblings would automatically take precedence over their older sisters.
