Kate shares how she and William avoided ’embarrassment’ when George was born

Prince George: Kate Middleton and William leave hospital in 2013

Princess Kate once revealed she and her husband Prince William had found a clever way to avoid any blunders during their departure from the hospital with their first-born son, Prince George.

Prince George was born in July 2013 at St Mary’s Hospital in London and the royal couple presented the young prince to the world’s media waiting outside the Lindo Wing of the hospital just days later.

Prince William said that his son had a “good set of lungs” and joked that George already had more hair than him.

But the pair had practised their exit several times before so as to make for a smooth departure.

The Princess of Wales revealed on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast, “Happy Mum, Happy Baby” that she and William had even used a doll to practice before putting the newborn prince in a car seat to avoid any embarrassment.

She said: “We were like ‘What do we do?… in a swaddle?’. ‘How’s this supposed to work?!’

“We even tried to practice with a little baby, like a little doll, at home but you know it just never works out the way you planned it so it was quite hard to do that on the world’s stage, but no, he did a very good job.”

At the time, it was reported that the Prince and Princess of Wales were given parenting lessons in a conservatory before George was born.

The lessons, which were reportedly carried out by the late obstetric physiotherapist, Christine Hill in the conservatory at her West London home, were mostly attended by Kate, whilst William was present for one of them.
