The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge emerged from the Lindo Wing with their new baby girl wrapped in a white blanket just after 6pm.

The Royal Mint has unveiled the design of a new £5 coin to mark the birth of the princess. It is the second coin to have been released to celebrate a royal birth – the first after the arrival of Prince George in 2013.

I endeavor to bring to light worthy of note, often less known images from the royal past and present and thus further enhance the understanding of royal history and what it represents for us.
