Princess Charlotte enjoys special solo bonding time with royal baby

In September 1984, a day after Princess Diana gave birth to Prince Harry at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London's Paddington neighborhood (just like Kate!), Prince Charles brought a 2-year-old William to meet his new little brother, Harry.

The couple welcomed their bonny baby boy at 11.01am, weighing in at a healthy 3.83kg - which makes him not only the biggest bub in the family (George weighed 3.79kg and Charlotte 3.71kg), but he's also the biggest baby born to an heir in 100 years.

The mum-of-three went into labour first thing in the morning and Kensington Palace tweeted that she had headed to St Mary's Hospital. "We didn't keep you waiting too long this time". The little royal finished class at Thomas' Battersea school, where he is in reception, and arrived at the hospital along with his father Prince William and his sister, still in his school uniform of navy shorts, buckle shows, a blue shirt and v-neck navy jumper embellished with the school's logo.

'We're very happy, ' said William, adding, 'Now we've got thrice the worry!'

A 2013 change to the law means that for the first time in British history, a new prince will not supplant his older sister in the order of succession.

To recap: a royal baby was born. Previously younger males would take precedence over older female siblings.

The official announcement of the birth was made by placing a notice on an easel in the forecourt of the queen's London home, Buckingham Palace, a tradition that has been in place since it became the sovereign's official residence in 1837.

Hundreds of fans took to Twitter to gush over the cuteness exhibited by the princess, moments before she disappeared inside to meet her mother Kate and the newborn.
