One of the first people to meet the royal baby is not necessarily the Queen, or even granddad Prince Charles, but Kate Middleton’s hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker.
She and the Duchess’ personal assistant and stylist Natasha Archer, are supposed to arrive nice and early to ensure the Duchess of Cambridge is looking camera ready when she makes her grand entrance on the steps of the Lindo Wing and introduces the new baby to the world.
Well, one half of the magic-making due has just been spotted leaving St Mary’s hospital, which could possibly mean that the royal baby has arrived.
Natasha was seen outside the hospital just four hours after Kate was said to have gone into labour, according to the Daily Mail.
She's the person believed to have picked out the blue and white polka dot dress that Kate wore out of the Lindo Wing after the birth of Prince George, and her arrival at the hospital with Amanda was the first sign the heir had been born.
The ladies were two of the first people in the world to meet the young Prince George after his arrival in 2013.

No word yet.... but Kate’s dresser Natasha Archer was spotted leaving the Lindo Wing earlier....getting Kate’s dress? I suspect #RoyalBaby has been born but obviously all the (Royal) families have to be told first! pic.twitter.com/14pxBvQZBb— Emily Andrews (@byEmilyAndrews) April 23, 2018
Natasha is no stranger to royal protocol and has worked for the family for over a decade. She started out as Kate's personal assistant, before moving into a styling role.
