PRINCESS CHARLOTTE’s imminent arrival in 2015 forced Buckingham Palace to install a special plan so as to “avoid the chaos” that had come from Prince George’s birth, a royal photographer has told Express.co.uk.

“My first time photographing a royal baby reveal outside of the hospital was the birth of Prince George.

“There was a real sense of chaos around this birth with it being the first child from either William or Harry.

“Everyone was very excited by it, and people camped outside the hospital for weeks.”

He continued: “Ahead of Princess Charlotte’s birth, there was a meeting with the Palace.

“They wanted to work out the best way to photograph it, and where everyone should stand.

“To avoid the chaos from Prince George’s birth, we weren’t allowed up to the hospital until Kate had been admitted.

“When it was time, we were given a numbered spot outside the hospital drawn out of a hat and allocated to us.”
