Just about everyone is excited about the arrival of royal baby number three (even Meghan Markle, who was omitted from the official royal baby announcement), but we have to take a moment and think about the kids. How do the royal kids feel about having a baby brother? Is Princess Charlotte feeling sad she's not the baby of the family anymore? Does Prince George wish he had another sister and not a brother? 

  • No sibling jealousy here ... yet!

    As it turns out, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were thrilled when they met their baby brother. A royal insider told Us Weekly that "George and Charlotte were with the baby for 25 minutes and were very excited to meet their new sibling. It's unlikely they'll be asleep when William and Kate arrive home. They'll be up all night, excited about their new brother."

  • Charlotte's royal wave says it all.

    So even though she's not going to be the baby of the family anymore, it's clear that Charlotte is content that she still gets to be the "littlest princess" since she got to welcome another brother. Her princess-perfect wave to the crowd outside the Lindo Wing says it all. These royal kids know how to make an entrance -- George and Charlotte's arrival was almost as sweet as seeing the new prince for the first time.

  • Both George and Charlotte are still so young so it's quite adorable they have all these photos to capture the moment.

    And as for George, well, he gets a brother. Plus, it seems he was plucked straight from school to head to visit mum and new sibling for the first time. The 4-year-old is quite dashing in his school uniform. 

    Before mum and dad emerged from St. Mary's Hospital to greet the lucky onlookers, George and Charlotte were ushered in by dad Will. It was such a sweet moment. Their nanny, Maria, arrived shortly after. She took the kids back home so mum and dad could finish up at the hospital. Kate was set to leave hospital just seven hours after giving birth.


  • We wonder what George and Charlotte think of their brother's name.

    As of now, the name of royal baby number three is still a mystery. Will said that the world will know "soon enough" -- and we're guessing it will be revealed via Twitter. We wonder what George and Charlotte think of the name or if they had a say in the final choice. Our bets are still on Philip, named after baby's great-grandfather.
