The Duchess of Cambridge’s choice of dress for her first post-birth appearance has led to the designer’s website to crash.
As Kate departed from the Lindo Wing, she chose a Jenny Packham dress to face the world’s media, and within minutes of the designer being confirmed thousands had taken to the fashion brand’s site.
At first it was believed to be a piece from the Jenny Packham Sping/Summer 2013 collection, however it was later confirmed by a spokesman that the dress was a bespoke piece especially created for Kate’s highly anticipated appearance.
“I couldn’t possibly comment,” Jenny Packham said, after being asked if she had made both a blue and pink version.
New mum Kate has long been a fan of the British designer and has been seen in many of her dresses since her wedding to Prince William in 2011.
The proud parents left the Lindo Wing on Tuesday afternoon, just over 24 hours after Kate gave birth to the little Prince. On Wednesday evening, it was confirmed the couple had called the baby George Alexander Louis, and Kensington Palace confirmed the child will be known as ‘His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge’.
The name George had been a long favourite for the name of the Cambridge’s first child, and was even predicted by our very own editor-in-chief.
The new royal trio have now left London, after being visited by The Queen and Prince Harry, and have arrived at the Middleton’s family home in Bucklebury, where they are expected to stay for the next couple of weeks.
“This is now private and quiet time for them to get to know their son,” a spokesman for the couple said.
It is believed the Duke and Duchess will speak to the media in around two weeks time.
