They're also already asking if new princess Cambridge be a "tragedy in the making" while she's still less than a day old. I'd take them with a large grain of salt - I'm surprised they took a break from their endless coverage of the Kardashians to even announce the birth

I am so mad right now. I just could not hang on for any longer, so left the DVR running and recording while I crashed, only to find when it was time for the 6pm News that...For some odd reason, our downstairs satellite receiver has become synched w/the one up here. What that means is, whenever the one up here has the channel changed, the one downstairs does too and...,I have nothing of George coming to see his baby sister or of the little Princess' introduction to the World.

And I left on BBC World too!!!

Grrr!!!

She is such a little Sweetie!! Wonder how it'll take before patterns of the little Sweetheart's bonnet pops up?

Sigh....Such a happy day!!! :)

I would think you would be staying longer in hospital; I was 2 days before I went home and that was on doctors orders

I don't think Kate is a Duke, unless gender neutrality in the English language has been raised to a new level !

Eh, I was the one who asked the question and I got the meaning. It gets confusing the more titles they get.

She's as cute as a bug!
I had a C-section, and I was out of the hospital after two nights and a few hours!

If there is no reason to stay in hospital they don't stay there.

Diana was out within 24 hours with both her boys and that was in the early 80s when most people were still staying in overnight or longer.

Kate stayed a little longer with George.

Zara left the hospital six hours after Mia was born.

I agree. Also, they will have a nurse or doctor at home I guess so it's not like she has to be kept "under observation" or learn how to breastfeed and stuff. That plus the disturbance for other patients and residents, the security threat + them having anothing kid makes getting out of there as soon as the doctor okays it is the most logical way.

William was born HRH Prince William of Wales. On his wedding day he was promoted from Prince to Duke as a substantive title is superior to a style such as Prince.

As a consequence Kate became HRH The Duchess of Cambridge on her wedding day. Otherwise she would have been known as HRH Princess William of Wales.

George is Prince George under both the 1917 LPs of George V and the later LPs of 2013 of QEII.

The new baby is HRH Princess xxxx of Cambridge under the 2013 LPs that extended the HRH Prince/Princess style to ALL children of William. Without that the baby would have been Lady xxxx Mountbatten-Windsor.

Harry's children, if born in the present reign and if no new LPs are issued will be born as Lord/Lady xxxx of whatever title Harry is given.

It makes no sense for Kate, who is fairly well-to-do, after all, and who lives in coughing distance of the hospital, to stay in hospital imo. Why not go home as soon as one can? Far more comfortable and cozy, especially with a little toddler running about eager to see his new sister. So much better than a hospital. Plus all those royal visitors, just makes more sense for privacy.

As others have mentioned, too, it must be a strain on the hospital staff with all the security and logistics involved having a royal patient. Better for all the 'regular' patients to have the hub-bub abate. Makes sense to me.

BTW I was fascinated that we were able to watch the drive from the hospital back to Kensington Palace. It really was a short drive. Of course, the outriders were 'paving the way', but still, under 5 minutes, I think.
