As soon as it was known that The Duchess of Cambridge had given birth to a baby girl, bets were on that she would leave the hospital wearing pink. Even the Queen who was on her public duties today wore a bright pink outfit as a nod to the royal arrival.
But Kate side-stepped the I've-just-had-a-girl-so-I'll-wear-pink thing and opted for a yellow and white printed dress by one of her favourite British designers - Jenny Packham.
Kate wore a custom dress by the designer, which had a buttercup yellow floral print leading down to a white ombre skirt. It had demure three-quarter length sleeves and a modest rounded neckline. She also wore nude court heels - let's remind you this was ten hours after giving birth!
The princess meanwhile was wrapped in a white knitted GH Hurt and Son Ltd blanket. This is very similar to the one that her brother George wore on his first outing.
The Cambridges have a thing for continuity - you may remember that Kate also wore Jenny Packham following the birth of Prince George. She wore a blue polka-dot dress which resembled the spotty dress which Princess Diana wore when she left the hospital with William.
Jenny Packham is one of the Duchess' favourite labels, as she has worn the British designer's dresses on numerous royal tours and black tie engagements.
