Royal tradition of taking toddlers to the Lindo
Prince George went to visit Princess Charlotte at the hospital in 2015.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte could pay a visit to the Lindo Wing to meet their new baby sibling when he or she arrives – if the Cambridges keep up with tradition.
George visited newborn Charlotte a few hours after she was born in 2015, arriving with his father, the Duke of Cambridge.
The 21-month-old slightly nervous looking youngster was carried up the steps to the private hospital by William, and gave the crowds a small wave.
The newspapers at the time reported how William, who was dressed in red shorts, a white shirt with red embroidery, white ankle socks and traditional leather bar shoes, ran down the corridor into Diana’s arms as she called his name.
The introduction was judged a success, with William holding baby Harry’s hand as he lay in his cot.
He spent 20 minutes at the hospital before waving to the crowds as he was taken home by his nanny, Barbara Barnes.
“Make sure you are not holding the new baby when your toddler first sees you after the birth,” it said.
“Give your toddler a big hug first, then introduce her to the new baby after a few minutes.
“Buying a present for the new baby to give to his or her older sibling may help.”
