William and Kate Take Baby Cambridge to Bucklebury, Relatives Visit

The Cambridge family were photographed leaving Kensington Palace just after 1 p.m. today after spending their first night at home with their baby boy in Nottingham Cottage.

Daily Mail

Bespectacled William sat in the front of a black range rover and smiled broadly as Kate sat in the back with Baby Cambridge, waving as they left the grounds.

They were accompanied by a four car convoy.

William and Kate received several visitors, beginning with James and Pippa Middleton who met their nephew last night. Prince Harry paid a visit to meet Baby Cambridge this morning and the Queen arrived at Kensington Palace to meet her new great grandson for the first time before travelling to Balmoral in Scotland on Friday. Her Majesty seemed delighted at a reception last night telling guests, "He's enormous."

Kensington Palace officials naturally refused to confirm where the trio were heading and although the couple initially turned in the opposite direction, it was very much thought they were taking their son to the Middleton family home in Bucklebury.

It would seem a logical choice as the press have been camped outside Kensington Palace since the early hours of the morning. Staying with Kate's family will allow both parents to relax and unwind at the manor which is surrounded by 18 acres and boasts a tennis court and swimming pool. Carole and Mike will be able to provide support and will be delighted to have the opportunity to get to know their grandson.


A Palace spokesperson said:

'This is a private and quiet time for them to get to know their son.'

Sky's Paul Harrison spotted a royal protection officer walking Lupo this morning and shared this photo from KP.

There is a quick video of the departure from Kensington Palace at ITV.



Kate looked radiant in the Short Sleeve Knot Front Dress by maternity brand Séraphine (with thanks to Carly from Kate Middleton Style).  Kate bought several dresses from the brand and has been photographed wearing a couple of them in recent months. The lavender floral print dress features a v-neckline and short sleeves.

Seraphine

The £39 dress is described as:

'This chic short sleeved maternity dress is the ultimate in effortless style and will ensure that you are perfectly polished for the on the go style in minutes.'

For those fond of the print, it also features on Seraphine's Joy Top which is currently reduced from £45 to £27 at John Lewis.

I don't know about you but I simply cannot stop looking at the photos of William, Kate and Baby Cambridge from yesterday's hospital departure. Throughout my time blogging, it has to be the most special and moving occasion thus far. It was particularly adorable to hear William turned to Kate and said "Come on Poppet" before ushering her back into the Lindo Wing.


I know many of you were eager to know who made Baby Cambridge's blanket, I have updated yesterday's post with all relevant details. I do hope the Duke and Duchess enjoy their time at the Middleton home with their little Prince.

    Bon voyage to Bucklebury William, Kate and Baby Cambridge! Best wishes!

    Wow didn't exspect this! What a treat :) I have never heard that word ( Poppet) is it a term of endearment used in England or just their own personal one?
    Love the short sleeve knot dress, a perfect choice. Actually I would like that if they made it just as a top. William really looks the happy Poppa and Kate the caring mum.
    I was just reading that Nottingham cottoge doesn't have AC so I can also understand why they would want to slip away to mum and dad's so quickly besides, wanting to be with them.

    I am in the same boat Charlotte it's hard to stop staring at the pictures. I think because in all the beauty in the world there is nothing like a new born baby. It tops it all off (like a cherry on a sundae) or (the crowning glory) when the baby is surrounded by loving parents. :)
    Happy summer day all!

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Poppet is an English term of endearment / though quite an old fashioned one - it's my grandads pet name for my nanny (they're 85!)

      Delete
    2. Recently in Palo Alto, California, I was startled at the vet's when an English lady called my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a Poppet. Thought that term was dated but it seems not. She said it means something precious or adorable.

      Thanks Charlotte for such dedicated and fantastic blogs.

      Hi Sarah,

      I also found this definition below. Knowing that makes it so much more special that William uses as his term of affection for his wife and mother of his son. Similar to what we use in the US as "darling" "dear" or "sweetheart"

      Poppet:
      "A term of great endearment and affection, used to describe in one word all the feelings of warmth, comfort, kindness, generosity, honesty and strength of character you feel every time you are with that person.

      A word not to be used lightly, but one that expresses great respect and admiration for those to whom it is directed." [Urban Dictionary]

      P.S. Noticed the handle appeared to be still in the position for carrying. From my little ones, I remember that you were to move the handle back for safety when travelling. Not meaning to judge just always worry as a mom.:-).

    Poppet is a tender British endearment which my husband introduced me to. It's often used for children too. Such a sweet insight into their relationship. I almost wish it hadn't been overheard - almost too personal!

  10. Wow yet again a brilliant post, you have kept us all so well looked after during the long wait. The pictures outside the hospital are gorgeous. All the families look thrilled which is lovely to see. Does Kate have any grandparents? Or are The Queen and Prince Philip the only ones?
    I think today they must have discussed names with the Queen on her visit to have her advice on the matter.
    Did anyone see an article written in the Daily Mail by a woman who had had her baby delivered at the Lindo Wing. It was very interesting and gave an idea what the couple must have experienced in the first day with their new baby.
    It is lovely to see the close family so thrilled.
    I love the Seraphine dress. Seriously thinking of getting this!
    I should think the next big event will be the Christening, I always thought it was done at about 3 months old which would make it late October.
    Thank you Charlotte for all you very hard work. Donna

I'm so glad that the Cambridges are spending time with Kate's family so that they may truly rest and relax. It's great that the Queen and Harry got to see the baby, too. Now the Queen can enjoy her holiday. ;o)

    Hope that you got some sleep last night, Charlotte! Thank you again for all these wonderful photos and your excellent blog!

      Been thinking the Queen had a very close relationship with her mummy, I do believe she absolutely understands the desire for Kate to be with her mom. I wish my mom could have been with me with my first born, it is a daunting experience. Having my hubby was perfect but, women seem to have the gentle touch we need during those first few days.

      I felt great after my baby was born! I could have gone to work the next day had it been necessary. (Thank goodness, it wasn't because I wanted to spend the time with my baby and my husband.) However, about a week or two later, I was really dragging around with bags under my eyes, because my baby had colic, and neither my husband nor I was getting any sleep! Hope little George (and his parents!) escape that curse!

  14. I was just wondering- im slightly worried they will now not pay attention to lupo. Neither one of his parents have walked him. While there is a lot going on, I always fear that people get puppies because they are cute and great practice, but then when the real baby comes along, dogs get neglected. Please say that wont be the case. A royal protection officer is not the dogs "leader" or parent. Its seems they might not be bonding with the dog anymore

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was from Abc news. They love to start ugly rumours. It is not because this morning a royal protection walked Lupo that it means he will be neglected. I am sure we will soon see photos of him with the little bundle of joy. William and Kate really love their dog. They would never neglect him I am sure.

    2. Kate, Texas, USA24 July 2013 at 16:59

      The Queen's corgi's are walked daily by a member of her staff. I'm not an expert on dogs, but I think Lupo will be fine. If I had to guess, I think Lupo would probably head to Bucklebury with his family. :-)

      Delete
    3. If they were indifferent to the dog, I doubt it would be with them at the Cottage during this very special time. They could have kept Lupo behind in Bucklebury when they drove to London last Friday. I suspect they wanted this member of the family to be with them so they could introduce the baby when they brought him home from the hospital. And if a Protection Officer DID walk him today with everything they had going on before a mid-day departure to the Middleton's home, I would give them a pass. :) Just my opinion.

    Lovely to know they are out into the countryside and fresh air. London must be as bad as Paris at the moment, with the heat and pollution.
    I was also having a thought for all the mothers who suffer from post-natal depression. Didn't Princess Diana suffer from it ? I'm sure the Duchess will feel very much happier with her husband and parents around to counter all sorts of pressure.

    An unexpected, but yet another FABULOUS post!!! Thank you Charlotte!!! I will admit also that I just can't stop looking at pictures or the video of them at the hospital yesterday. Such a beautiful, magnificent, and historic moment!! I just LOVED the kind gestures between William and Kate. Hearing him call her Poppet....SO sweet. It makes the moment even that more special!!! The obvious great love for each other and now their precious son. Their beaming smiles were fantastic! The little prince's "tardiness" was well worth it!!!! :-)

    Glad he is being introduced to his special family members. Although it's a private moment, I would have LOVED to see Uncle Harry's first meeting. Don't you know he's going to be such a fun and cheeky uncle!?!?!? I'm sure everyone thinks he is absolutely adorable! I have seen pictures of the Queen going and coming from KP. She looks quite happy and satisfied. The House of Windsor stands strong and has an heir! So much to be thankful for and celebrate!

    I hope William and Kate enjoy their time in Bucklebury. Hopefully it will be a peaceful and relaxing escape from KP. From what we saw yesterday, Grandpa and Grandma Middleton are over the moon!!!

    I'm still SO excited!!! Baby Cambridge is beautiful!!! :-)

  21. Thanks for the update Charlotte!! So nice to see new pictures this morning.

    I'm really hoping that someone informs them about how to properly use a baby carseat. It worries me a little seeing them use it incorrectly when so many people are watching them. The carseat carrying handle should always be in the down position when driving. Otherwise, the carseat won't be able to do it's job in case of an accident, which is to move back towards the seat and create a cocoon for the baby, which can't happen if the carrying handle is in the way. Sorry for my blabbering, It's just one of my pet peeves when people don't read the directions on how to properly install or use carseats as I feel it's so important.

    3. Meghan- if you look at the particular Britax model they are using, the handle is always in that position. I would not assume they are using it incorrectly.

      Delete
    4. Not All infant seats have to be used with the handle down. Although that was the case with my first child's seat, the one we bought last year for my youngest requires the handle to be in any of the 3 locked positions. Up, mid- level or down. I don't know what brand of seat they are using but that may be the case.

      Delete
    5. Meghan is right, the handle should be in the down position while locked into the car base. I hope they also take some time to read the user manual on how to properly secure little George in the carseat. I noticed on his first ride leaving the hospital that he was still swaddled instead of having his arms properly threaded through the harness. Also, there was no head support, poor guy!!

      While we're talking about carseat safety, he really should be in the middle seat of the second row as to be the furthest possible distance away from the doors. Side-impact collisions are far more common that head-ons. jmho

    Good morning Ms. Charlotte- Thank you again for this great post. I was just going to read the comments but surprise you had for us a new post. I just can't take my eyes off of those beautiful pictures of William & his Duchess. You can just see all the love they have for each other and now all the love they have for their beautiful baby boy. They bring tears to my eyes.

    I can't believe the great wait is over. We have followed the Duchess for the past 9 month and now she is a mother. What a beautiful thing. I hope the Duchess will get the rest she need's t her parents house. But also I hope that since they will be at her parents house that they will get to bond with their baby boy. And that her mother will let them be alone. William onkly get's the two weeks then he has to return to Anglesey and leave his wife and baby. That is going to be very hard on his Duchess and him.

    Again thank you Charlotte for this great blog, all the friends that I have met on this site and for keeping us up to date on everything Duchess Kate & William. And now Baby Boy Cambridge.

    Charlotte, what a wonderful job you've done. You bring a warmth and homely touch (for Americans, that might not know, I mean that word in the sense of home and hearth, family, etc.) to this wonderful journey Catherine has had during her pregnancy and now the birth of the new Royal heir. Thank you for all your hard work. I, too, have not been able to stop thinking about and looking at the photos of yesterday. Something occurred to me: We look at William and Catherine's lives almost a bit wistfully -- such a fairytale existence. And it is in some respects. But also, they are really caretakers, not only of their new little prince, but all they have. I remember a scene from Downton Abbey, where Mary is distraught that, in her perception, her father is not "sticking up for her". She cannot inherit the estate by law, and she sees that Matthew will get it all (this is before they fall in love), and she accuses her father of not caring for her. Lord Grantham turns to her and says, "My dear, I am a caretaker. I do not own any of this. It is my responsibility to care for and pass it on to someone else. I have no choice." He goes on to explain that if he gave her what she wants he would be destroying the dynasty and future of the estate. It's a hard pill to swallow in some respects, though it comes with a great deal of privilege. This is how I view the Royal Family. They are really caretakers of all that the British Monarchy means. It is not theirs to do as they wish. They do have a great deal of privilege and flexibility, but when it comes down to it, enormous responsibility and pressure to "get it right". We are all called to the roles we play, and thinking about this helps me see how much they need our support and love and prayers. William and Catherine are doing brilliantly and such an inspiration to the world, I think, of what true Royalty really is. A great deal of credit must go to not only Diana, but Charles, the Queen and the Middletons for bringing these two young people to the place they are now.

      I wonder if it is hard on William & Kate knowing all this. But maybe when William & Kate were talking about & planning their wedding & future it was all brought up. I jsut hope that William & Kate can give this little boy a normal life as possible. I know William will try and so will Kate.

    From Wikipedia:
    The word poppet is an older spelling of puppet, from the Middle English popet, meaning a small child or doll. In British English it continues to hold this meaning. Poppet is also a chiefly British term of endearment, especially for a young woman or girl.[1]

    So I'm not so sure if it was for his child or his wife :P I kind of thnk it was for Kate. If so, I truly feel like an invader for knowing this.

    I can't believe they had to spend last night at KP WITHOUT AC. That sounds insane. No wonder they rushed out so soon. Although, I'm sure they have those window units at least.

    Kate looks lovely. Great that she has her hair up. I knew we would see more of that and I'm truly happy bc I think she looks prettier.
