Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their first child, Prince George, on July 22, 2013, and the world waited for hours to catch their first glimpse of the future king

Seven years ago, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out of the Lindo Wing with their newborn son.
Prince George, who celebrates his seventh birthday today, was born at 4.24pm on July 22, 2013, weighing a healthy 8lb 6oz.
It was a special moment for the Royal Family and the whole country, and the world watched on as William and Kate walked down the hospital steps – and while it was a lovely moment there was one small hiccup.
We won’t go as far as saying, “the royals, they’re just like us” – but nor are they not completely immune to the same mistakes as the rest of us.
They handled the burning hot scrutiny well but, like many a new parent before them, they made a common mistake.

As any parent knows, fitting the car seat for the first time is a bit of a fiddle. But it wasn’t Prince William’s fumblings which drew criticism, but rather the fact that George was swaddled then buckled into his seat.
Safety advice states that items such as blankets and swaddles can prevent the seat straps from staying the correct position.
As well as being swaddled, George’s little arms were poking out from under the straps.

Cue, outrage as people weighed in on the matter.
In comparison to George’s appearance and what was likely to be some serous first-time parent jitters, when presenting Princess Charlotte to the press, Kate and William seemed a lot more confident and absolutely nailed fitting the car seat too.
Kate has given birth to all three of her children at the Lindo Wing, following in the footsteps of her mother-in-law Princess Diana.
She posed on the hospital step to the delight of royal fans on each occasion, with the photos being sent around the world in a matter of seconds.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle however opted for a different setup, keeping details of the birth private.
However, Archie’s place of birth – the private Portland Hospital in Westminster – was revealed on his birth certificate.
