On July 22, 2013, Prince William became a father for the first time, following the birth of Prince George. A long-awaited event so much that, upon their release from the maternity ward of Saint Mary’s Hospital in London, a few hours after the birth of the little boy who turns 7 this Wednesday, July 22, Kate Middleton and the Duke of Cambridge presented their son to a horde of photographers and journalists. Future King of England, he who is second in the order of succession to the throne, the grandson of Her Majesty Elizabeth II, however, has not escaped the error. A dumpling pointed out by our colleagues from the British tabloid The Mirror.
When trying to get Prince George into the car driving him back to Kensington Palace, Prince William made a blunder worthy of a young dad.

If some may have become afraid of such a spectacle, it is because of road safety advice which indicates that items such as blankets and diapers can prevent the seat straps from staying in the correct position, as our reminders remind us. colleagues from across the Channel.

Prince William made an apprenticeship of it. Because, when he presented his daughter, Princess Charlotte, to the whole world on May 2, 2015, Prince Harry’s older brother seemed more confident next to his wife, succeeding in the location of the car seat brilliantly and therefore silencing the bad tongues once and for all. Reproaches which Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have escaped, on May 6, 2019, when little Archie was born.
Indeed, unlike Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Sussexes have cultivated the mystery around the birth of their son, not presenting him to the world until two days later, in Windsor Castle. The ex-actress had made a point of resting after the effort of childbirth, unlike the Duchess of Cambridge who took the habit of posing, smiling, on the steps of the maternity ward of Saint Mary.
