With the news that the Duchess of Cambridge has gone into labour, the most excited among us are eagerly waiting for photos of the new parents’ outside the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s hospital where Kate is giving birth.

This is where we’ll get a first glimpse of royal baby number three for the first time.

The hospital steps photo has become rather iconic, with many of us admiring The Duchess‘s post-birth outfits (and her superhuman ability to look amazing just hours after giving birth) just as much as the royal baby.

Shortly after giving birth to her first child, Prince George, in June 2013, the royal looked glowing in a powder blue, polka dot Jenny Packham dress (above).

People made comparisons between that and the polka dot turquoise dress Princess Diana wore when she left hospital with Prince William in 1982.

For the couple’s first appearance with Princess Charlotte in May 2015, Kate opted for yet another custom Jenny Packham shift dress – this time with a yellow daffodil print.
