We might get our first glimpse of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, NEW MOM TO THE HEIR in just a few hours.
According to a release from Kensington Palace, the royal family might leave the hospital as early as 6 p.m. UK time (1 p.m. for us on the east coast) or tomorrow morning. Some evidence that it will be the former? The Duchess's hairdresser is reportedly in. the. building.
Long-time royals photographer Arthur Edwards (he's been photographing the royals since 1977) tweeted six hours ago that "Kate's hairdresser has just arrived at the Lindo wing." As the Huffington Post points out, the man was at St. Mary's when Prince William was born so he can probably ID Kate's hair dresser at this point.
Having to look camera ready (for like, all the cameras in the world) a day after giving birth sounds terrifying. We're glad her hair dresser is there. Hope she's got makeup standing by as well. And that she's not experiencing any of that post-partum hair loss Cheryl warned of.
