The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant as she presented her son to the world in a pale blue polka dot dress reminiscent of the pattern worn by Princess Diana on the day she left hospital with Prince William.

Kate stepped out of the Lindo Wing wearing a bespoke piece by Jenny Packham, a couturier who has become something of a household name thanks to the Duchess.

Observers were quick to draw parallels with the outfit worn by William's late mother when she posed on the same doorstep with her first-born son in a green spotted dress.

But where Diana appeared nervous and bewildered by the attention, a glowing Kate smiled broadly and spoke assuredly as she introduced her child to the world's press and the hordes of cheering well-wishers.
