Prince George has arrived at the Lindo Wing to meet his baby sister for the very first time. Shortly after 4pm on 2 May, the little royal arrived with his proud father Prince William to be introduced to the newborn Princess of Cambridge.

Ten minutes after William made the short journey from the hospital to Kensington Palace, he arrived back at the hospital with his young son. After pulling up outside the Lindo Wing, William got out of his car and help George out onto the pavement. It looked like plan A had been for the toddler to walk the short distance to the hospital steps, but seemingly startled by all the commotion, George reached his arms up to his daddy, who scooped him up and carried him the rest of the way.

Encouraged by his father, little George waved to wave to the crowds who cheered and clapped to see two future monarchs waving at the same time. William paused briefly outside the doors to the Lindo Wing, talking to George all the while to reassure the little boy. He then gave his son a tender kiss on the head before they disappeared inside the hospital.

The touching scene was reminiscent of William's visit to the Lindo Wing as a child in 1984, when he arrived hand-in-hand with his father Prince Charles to meet Prince Harry for the very first time.

Surprisingly, it is the only the second time Prince George has been seen in the country officially – the first being on the very same steps in July 2013, when his parents proudly introduced him to the world.It is thought that George was being looked after by his grandmother Carole Middleton at Kensington Palace while his parents were in hospital. It's not known whether he was told of his baby sister's arrival this morning, or whether Prince William would have been the one to break the happy news.
