The Duchess of Cambridge has just given birth to her third baby, a second son, and a new prince for the British royal family.
In just one day, St.George’s Day, the Duchess of Cambridge went into labour, gave birth to her third child, introduced the new royal baby to his big brother and sister Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and prepared to step out in public for the first time before heading home to Kensington Palace.
With the world watching and with proud dad Prince William by her side, Kate carefully made her way down the Lindo Wing steps yesterday to present her new baby to the waiting media and royal fans outside the hospital. Looking radiant in a bright red dress by designer Jenny Packham, many people were quick to comment how incredible the Duchess looked, less than seven hours after giving birth.
However, one element of Kate’s appearance with her newborn son outside St.Mary’s hospital in Paddington yesterday caught people’s attention in particular – the new mum-of-three’s footwear.
While people’s can’t get over how amazing the Duchess looked just hours after giving birth, many mums shared their disbelief online over Kate’s ability to wear heels so soon after delivering her third baby.
One user on Facebook commented, ‘While she looks amazing, I can’t imagine it’s easy to walk in heels that close post-birth. I think it’s great that Prince William is holding her hand to help her down the stairs. He’s a real gentleman!’
‘I’m more surprised that she can walk perfectly fine, or what seems like, down those steps- in heels, just hours after giving birth’ said another Facebook user.
‘How does Kate look so amazing and gets to put high heels less then 24 hours after giving birth? She makes it look easy!’ said another royal fan in awe, while someone else quipped in response, ‘Bet she kicked those heels off in the car!’
‘Another fellow mum added, ‘I couldn’t imagine having to shower, get dressed and look sane for hundreds of photographers less than 48 hours after giving birth. Wowza.’
What do you think? How long did it take you to slip back into a pair of heels after giving birth? Or have you left yours languishing in the back of the closet for good? Let us know in the comments below!
