Kate Middleton still considers son Prince Louis, 4, a baby despite now being a ‘big boy’


Kate Middleton met babies and their mothers on a visit to the Royal Surrey County Hospital on Wednesday.

“It just feels like yesterday.”

Admiring the infant’s mittens and commenting on the newborn’s scrunched-up pose, the Princess added: “George was so huddled up too, he spent quite a few days like that.”

The Duchess of Cambridge also spoke to parents Hannah and Luke Culverwell, who had a two-day-old baby boy with his older brother at nursery.

She heard how the toddler had a bump on his head and quickly reassured the couple.

The mother-of-three said:”They all get them.

“They just seem to pick up these cuts and bumps, it’s part and parcel of it.”

The Princess also met new mum Szilvia Novak and her baby daughter Bianca, who was born six weeks premature.

It came after the mother, originally from Budapest in Hungary, asked the Duchess if she wanted to hold her baby while they were talking in the hospital’s Special Baby Care Unit.

The Princess of Wales replied: “Am I allowed to?”

A member of staff then helped Ms Novak pass the baby to the royal.

Cradling baby Bianca in her arms, the Duchess said: “She’s very sweet.”

Afterwards Ms Novak said that she was very impressed by the Princess of Wales.

She said :”I asked her if she wanted to hold her and she opted for it. I can’t blame her. (Bianca) is cute.

“(The Princess) was lovely to speak to. I was really impressed.

“You don’t feel like you have classes between you. It’s really nice.”

The visit was the Princess of Wales’ first solo engagement since being given the title by King Charles.

She choose to visit the hospital because of its outstanding repuation for maternity care and a recent UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative Gold Award for its work on infant feeding and parent-infant relationship.
