When Prince William and Duchess Kate emerged from the hospital to show off their third child to the public for the first time, people were hoping for a glimpse of the new prince.

But it was Kate's choice of dress that drew attention from some onlookers who had a very good memory.
Many saw the red dress as an homage to her late mother in law in a similar moment from 34 years ago:
And Twitter was so here for Kate's tribute to Diana!

The family looks like it's off to a happy start too!
People were amazed that Middleton was prepared to pose for the family's first photo op so soon after giving birth.
Surely the photos op’s can wait a day or two?!— K A N D I C E ✌??✨ ???? (@kandiceleoniie) April 23, 2018
Honestly, major props to #KateMiddleton ?????? if I’d just birthed a human & someone told me i had to take said human out in the cold, put on a dress & smile i would have head butted them pic.twitter.com/VgjlAohSef
Do you know the response I would have gotten if I asked my wife, hours after birth of our 3rd, to put on a dress and makeup and let's go have photos taken? #KateMiddleton #PrinceWilliam #Godbless https://t.co/9DPZDxA4Ec— Bad Motor Sc00ter (@BadMotorSc00ter) April 23, 2018
But it's obvious who the real star of the day was. Congratulations to the newest member of the royal family on his entrance into the world!
