Prince George & Princess Charlotte ‘were very excited to meet’ their baby brother

Royal birth Lindo

It was a pretty exciting day for the Cambridge family on Monday, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at Prince George’s big NOPE-face. One of the funniest headlines I saw about the little prince and princess was that George and Charlotte’s reactions were “on brand” from them, as much as kids can have their own brands. George’s brand is “I wish I was home with my best friend, Lupo the dog.” Charlotte’s brand is “mini-queen.” Charlotte has the little royal wave down and everything, and she responded well to the photographers calls. George did not. I don’t think anyone can look at George’s face and think “here’s a kid who’s super-excited to meet his new baby brother.” But Us Weekly would have you believe that.

Excited siblings! Prince George and Princess Charlotte were thrilled to meet their new baby brother on Monday, April 23, a source tells Us Weekly.

“George and Charlotte were with the baby for 25 minutes and were very excited to meet their new sibling,” the source tells Us. “It’s unlikely they’ll be asleep when William and Kate arrive home. They’ll be up all night, excited about their new brother.”

Prince William brought George and Charlotte to St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday shortly after Duchess Kate gave birth. The 4-year-old prince sported his school uniform and his sister, who turns 3 next week, wore a powder blue dress and a navy sweater. While George stayed close to his father, the princess proudly waved to the crowd waiting outside the hospital.

The source explained to Us that the royal family’s longtime nanny, Maria, also entered the hospital after the kids arrived with William, 35. Nanny Maria took the kids back to Kensington Palace after their visit.

That explains how George and Charlotte were shuffled off away from the cameras – Nanny Maria went in the back way, gathered the kids up and left out the back. Anyway, not to analyze it too much, but I think Charlotte probably was excited to meet little Prince T’Challa. And I think George couldn’t have given two sh-ts about his baby bro.

Also: Pippa Middleton went to visit her sister today. She was photographed driving through the Kensington Palace gate. She announced her pregnancy just in time before Kate grabbed all of the headlines.

    I love Charlotte doing the Royal Wave. The girl may never be Queen but she is a star.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      So true! That queenly, cupped-hand wave is so cute. She clearly loves every second in the limelight while poor George would like to disappear somehow!

    • Snazzy says:

      It was adorable!

    • homeslice says:

      You never really know…when QE2 was Charlotte’s age, no one would have guessed she would have been Queen either…

    • jwoolman says:

      I wonder if the Queen taught her that wave maneuver. Charlotte looks like her mini-me.

  2. Nicole says:

    I mean George could hate the cameras. Just from the last year he doesnt seem to like any attention which I’m sure is overwhelming. Charlotte takes to the cameras now but that could also change in a year. So I don’t think much of it except they are kids.
    Charlotte’s mini wave is so QEII it kills me (in a good way)

    • PrincessK says:

      George really does look like the Middleton’s… its a bit of a surprise that he doesn’t seem to like the cameras.

  3. minx says:

    George’s school uniform and Charlotte’s little dress…too cute.

  4. Keri says:

    How old is he? Jesus leave the kid alone, a ridiculous article.

  5. Cee says:

    I remember when my younger sister was born, I was at K5 birthday party and my father picked me up early to go meet her. I was super excited! Meeting a new sibling is almost always very exciting for little kids.

    • jwoolman says:

      My brother remembers when he (almost three years old) first saw me lying on a bed when mom came home from the hospital. My aunt said to him “Do you like her?” He remembers being rather baffled by the question because I was just lying there like a little lump, not doing anything…

      But a few months later I apparently became more of a show-and-tell exhibit. My brother and a friend wandered away from preschool so my brother could show his friend his relatively new baby sister. Putting the teacher and my mother into a panic, of course, until the two of them finally showed up at our place.

      The teacher decided to retire soon after, we always figured my brother was responsible. And my mother decided to not send me to preschool because her nerves couldn’t stand it. I went straight to kindergarten. The afternoon session, because it was so hard to get me up for the morning session. (Still is.)

    I agree. Kids are kids. Just because george wasn’t jumping up and down doesn’t mean he doesn’t give a shit. The boy could be tired. Who knows? Lol

    • AtlLady says:

      I wonder if George has been raised (trained?) to ignore the cameras so he can go on about his business? That would be a fine trait for a future King to cultivate. Since we see so little of him on a regular basis, he may be learning to focus on the person before him, much like his Queen Gan-Gan does on her outings. While they can, perhaps Catherine and William are trying to focus on raising a proper future Monarch and leader rather than attending countless ribbon cuttings and dedications. I think George takes everything in and catalogues it away for future reference. Even as the third in line to the throne, the little guy has a lot of weight on his young shoulders.

    Children are very well behaved and lovely.

  8. Citresse says:

    George are Charlotte are both getting so tall…not surprising…Diana really brought the height to the Windsors. I’m really starting to believe new baby Cambridge could be a redhead. His eyebrows looked quite strawberry blonde… I vote for Prince Russell known as Rusty 🙂

  9. Amelie says:

    George looked this way when William took him to see Charlotte a few years ago. He was younger so he seemed really confused and apprehensive about all the journalists and camera people shouting his name as they went into the hospital. He has always seemed shy and cautious and definitely takes after his dad. He was a bit of a hellion as a baby in the few outings we saw of him but kids’ personalities can change.

  10. Digital Unicorn says:

    There is a video clip on Laine Gossip where when the kids go inside the hospital it looks like G raised his hand to the back of Chars head like he was going to make rabbit ears or tug on her hair like annoying big brothers do (I have 3 and they loved doing that to me).

  11. KiddV says:

    OMG, Charlotte slays me. She’s going to be fun to watch growing up. She’s so adorable and seems outgoing.

    George already has the William scowl down. He seems a bit more reserve, maybe not quite sure what to think of crowds and attention. He’s awfully cute, even scowling.

  12. Catherinethegoodenough says:

    LOL, I’ve got kids the same ages who would have done the same, except in my case it’s the older boy who would be shining, chatting with press and royal-waving away; whilst the younger girl would be frowning, hiding her head, probably tantruming all the way to the hospital door. Once inside they’d be equally excited about their sibling. They’re kids!

  13. Michelle says:

    George just might hate the press, but still be excited about the baby. My middle child does not smile in pictures because he hates them and if you played picture assumption you’d think he hates his sister, when really he adores her and calls her his baby. My older two were the same ages as George and Charlotte when my youngest was born and we’re both very excited.

  14. Ex-Mel says:

    They are very young children, with accordingly short attention spans. I expect their “excitement” upon meeting their brother went, more or less, along the lines of: “Yaaaaay…! … Mum, dad, can we have an ice cream now?”
    Which would be perfectly normal.
