The Duchess of Cambridge looked amazing as she stepped out with her newborn just hours after giving birth in order to introduce him to the world on the steps of the Lindo Wing.
But following the birth, many royal fans have been wondering whether 36-year-old Kate breastfeeds, and while the mum of three has never spoken publicly about the important parenting decision, she has hinted towards it in the past.
Here’s all the details we have when it comes to the royals and breastfeeding…
Kate Middleton wears specific breastfeeding dresses
The Duchess of Cambridge is a huge fan of the maternity brand Séraphine, and was spotted in one of their post-pregnancy dresses after giving birth to Prince George in 2013.
The number was specifically designed to help new mums breastfeed, with the description reading: “The deep V-neckline enhances your new cleavage and provides easy breast-feeding access post birth.”
While the owner of the clothing company – Cecile Renaud – previously told The Mirror: “Kate’s ordered a couple of breastfeeding styles from us.”
Mum and baby experts reveal how Kate Middleton managed breastfeeding at the royal wedding
Breastfeeding expert Clare Byam-Cook revealed exclusively to OK! magazine how Kate would manage breastfeeding Louis at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, prior to their special day.
She explained: “If breastfeeding is going well, Kate can start expressing milk that can then be frozen. So if Prince Louis needs feeding in the middle of the church service, he can be fed elsewhere with the bottle so Kate won’t have to rush out just as Harry and Meghan are saying: ‘I do.'”
The Queen and Princess Diana both breastfed
Although unlikely to be the reason, reports suggest that both the Queen and Princess Diana breastfed and enjoyed the experience.
Their decision might have encouraged Kate to do the same.
