Here’s How Prince George and Princess Charlotte Are Adjusting to the New Royal Baby
Hearts melted all over the world as cameras caught Prince William escorting Prince George and Princess Charlotte into St. Mary’s Hospital to meet their new baby brother. So what’s their overall feeling about having another sibling? Here’s what we know about how the young Cambridges are adjusting to life with Prince Louis.
Introductions reportedly went well
After they were spotted by the crowd outside the hospital — and Princess Charlotte made sure to wave at everyone — Prince William took his five-year-old and three-year-old in to meet Prince Louis. They were reportedly very excited about the new baby after spending almost half an hour with him and their parents.

Arrival home for the first time
Duchess Catherine went home less than seven hours after giving birth to reportedly to keep the media chaos away from Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Next: How does big brother feel?
Prince George is reportedly quite taken with his new brother, although he didn’t get to spend much time with Prince Louis right away since he has school during the week.

Following reports that she’s “the matriarch” of the Cambridge household, it will be interesting to see how their sibling relationship develops.
Next: Now that there are three of them …
Since Prince Louis was literally just born, we can’t yet determine how the dynamic within Prince William and Kate Middleton’s little family will change.

How Prince Louis’ life may be different
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have done their part so far to raise George and Charlotte out of the spotlight, and to be very hands-on parents despite their royal status. It will be interesting to see how much time they will contribute to Louis’ upbringing with two other children and their royal duties ramping up.
Next: It may be too soon to ask this, but …
At least for the time being, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge probably aren’t thinking about having more children. Especially since Prince William has been visibly exhausted from having the new baby and almost dozed off during public appearances!
