I have to confess that a shed a tear watching the BBC’s coverage of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge leaving the hospital. Why? I guess there are a number of reasons. I am a Brit and so the arrival of the new Prince is exciting to me. But also because I am a mum and I remember that day, leaving the hospital, with my first born so clearly. The emotions, nerves and pain I am sure every new mum shares. But my hat goes of to Kate Middleton for standing on those steps so soon after giving birth for the whole world to see.  I couldn’t have faced anyone but my husband, let alone crowds of well-wishers and photographers. I know it is expected. I know she had to do it . I know she had a stylist. (You would though). But  that must have been a tough thing to do. Kate Middleton I salute you!
