When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge presented their new baby daughter to the world only a few hours after her birth today, Kate looked amazing in a fabulous Jenny Packham dress.

With the tiny HRH Princess of Cambridge fast asleep for her journey home, and presumably the help of a full team of stylists, the yellow floral shift was a perfect choice for effortless glamour (and very flattering on a postnatal tummy!)
While I don’t expect to see Kate in traditional new mum attire any time soon, she is bound to have a few more breastfeeding friendly outfits waiting in her wardrobe. Here are few really special pieces for a new mum – perfect for your most formal public engagements and fit for any breastfeeding princess.
The “Fourth Trimester”
Just like the rest of us mere mortals, Princesses take a little time for their bodies to return to their normal selves and maternity / nursing designs are ideal for the transitional few months after giving birth. Kate was seen wearing a Seraphine nursing dress after the birth of Prince George, so perhaps one of their current range of nursing day dresses will take her fancy… but will she go for a fresh blue like last time, or will it be a raspberry pink for the new royal arrival?
Out and About
The Duchess attended her first public engagement only 5 weeks after Prince George was born, so it will be no surprise if she’s back in “normal clothes” quickly. A shirt dress is a great daytime option for a new mum and with this season’s styles, it doesn’t need to look as functional as it is:
A bit of stretch and a wrap front means that Kate will be able to dress up in some of her favourite styles for formal occasions even while nursing:
Behind the Scenes
Finally, because even perfect princesses need a little pampering at home, I’m loving this Olli Ella Nursing Chair from John Lewis, a modern classic which could grace any royal nursery – perfect for relaxing in your understated but glamorous MamaMoosh loungewear.
