By George: I've got a sister!

Prince George has arrived at the Lindo Wing to meet his newborn sister, offering a timid wave to the gathered crowds from the hospital steps.  

The 21-month-old was driven from the family home at Kensington Palace to St Mary's Hospital by his father, Prince William, at around 4pm this afternoon. 

After being lifted out of the car and put on the ground George stretched out his arms to be lifted back up by his father before offering a timid wave to the gathered media and fans. 

The new princess was born at 8.34am today weighing 8lbs and 3oz less than three hours after the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to hospital.

Both Kate, 33, and her newborn daughter were said to have been 'doing well' when the news came shortly after 11am today. The baby, whose name is not yet known, will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess of Cambridge. 
The announcement came by way of a statement released by Kensington Palace shortly after 11am. It was then posted on the palace's official Twitter page two minutes later. 

'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am,' it said. 

'The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. 'The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. 

'The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news. 

'Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.'

At around 12.30 a framed certificate signed by Kate's medical team was placed on an easel outside Buckingham Palace with the same words. 

The baby's name is not yet known but Alice and Charlotte are the most popular among bookmakers. 

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall released a statement this afternoon saying they were 'absolutely delighted' with the arrival of their granddaughter while the Earl of Spencer, Prince William's uncle, said: 'It's wonderful news - we are all thrilled for all four of them.'

The Prime Minister was among the first to congratulate the couple this morning writing on Twitter: 'Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their baby girl. 
'I'm absolutely delighted for them.' 

He was followed by Nick Clegg who said: 'Congratulations to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their new baby. Miriam & I wish them all the best as their family grows.' 

William planted a kiss on his little boy's head as they waved from the steps of the Lindo Wing this afternoon before disappearing into the hospital where Kate and the newborn princess remain.
" We're very happy, 
very happy, thank you.
I'm just going to pick up George "
Prince William  


After telling the gathered media and fans he was 'very happy', William drove himself away from the hospital to go to collect Prince George.
