She’s a famously hands-on grandmother who regularly helps her daughter Kate by babysitting, and within hours of the birth of her new grandson it seemed that Carole was already in action.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s mother was spotted stocking up on supplies from Boots and Peter Jones in the King’s Road area this afternoon.

Carole, 63, opted for a casual ensemble for her outing, stepping out in a red and white striped t-shirt and blue jeans, teamed with a neutral blazer.

The proud grandmother-of-three was not spotted visiting her daughter and the new arrival at The Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

However, the Duchess of Cambridge left hospital with the new arrival this evening, so Carole may be set to have her first visit in the privacy of Kensington Palace.

While her daughter was preparing to announce her third baby to the world, Carole was spotted out and about.

She swiftly walked down the road with her shopping before heading to her parked car where she placed her shopping bag all while keeping a firm grip on her mobile phone, perhaps awaiting further news of her new grandchild.

The Duchess of Cambridge will be leaving St Mary’s Hospital this evening, the palace said, adding that George and Charlotte have returned to Kensington Palace after meeting their new brother.

William was present for the birth this morning, and both Kate and the child were ‘doing well’, according to a palace spokesman. Senior members of the royal family were all said to be ‘delighted with the news’.

Kensington Palace said: ‘Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will be leaving St. Mary’s Hospital this evening. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace.’

Royal watchers had been expecting a swift delivery at the Lindo Wing, with the child sharing a birthday with William Shakespeare and Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

Sources told the Mail that George was at his school, Thomas’s Battersea, today and was not taken out early. His sister Charlotte attends Willcocks Nursery in Kensington.

No other royal visitors are expected at the Lindo Wing today. It is anticipated that the rest of the family, including the proud grandparents, will meet their grandson at Kensington Palace tomorrow.

The self-proclaimed Royalist Town Crier announced the birth on the steps of the Lindo Wing, marking the moment by saying ‘God save the Queen’. He drew cheers from the crowd of royal watchers outside the hospital.

The toddler couldn’t hide her excitement at meeting her baby brother today, as she waved happily to crowds outside the Lindo Wing on her way to meet the new arrival.

She and her brother George held hands with Prince William as they made their way into the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington where Kate, 36, gave birth to a boy weighing 8lbs 7oz at 11am this morning.

Charlotte – who attends Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington – looked adorable in a blue floral dress, teamed with a dropped navy cardigan while George was smart in his Thomas’s Battersea school uniform.

The little Prince who is known for having a shyer nature than outgoing Charlotte kept his head down, but was smiling as he made his way inside.

His confident sister, however, started waving as soon as she stepped out of the family car and even turned back on the hospital steps to offer a final greeting to the crowds.

Despite her tender years, she’s had plenty of opportunities to practice her royal wave after taking part in overseas tours with the Duke and Duchess.
