Seeing Prince William and Kate with their newborn son on the steps of St Mary's Hospital in London, it's impossible not to recall Princess Diana striking the same pose with Prince Charles 31 years earlier.
Kate appeared on the stairs of the hospital's Lindo Wing wearing a polka dot dress by designer Jenny Packham. Many have speculated her choice of attire was a tribute to the late Princess Diana, who wore a similar dress for her first public appearance with William. Prince William's casual look, on the other hand, was in stark contrast to his father's, who wore a striped suit, tie and pocket square.
Diana and Charles posed briefly on the hospital steps before being driven to Kensington Palace via a chauffered station wagon. William, on the other hand, endeared himself to the crowds by loading the baby in the car-seat himself, with mum deciding to sit in the back with bub while dad drove them home.
