Kate Middleton's 'Perfect, Natural' Labour

The Duchess of Cambridge wowed everyone when she emerged from hospital looking as radiant as ever after the birth of Prince George. Why? Turns out her labour was 'perfect' and 'natural' (plus, she had her hairdresser on hand throughout the month of July).


According to Vanity Fair, the Duchess spoke to friends about her first experience of giving birth. A source told the magazine, "She said it was straightforward and there were no complications. She wanted a natural birth and she was so happy she was able to have one".

A friend also revealed that Kate was so happy after the birth, she described it as "perfect".


As for her flawless post-baby look? The magazine reported that Kate's hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker was ready and waiting to style her hair, just in time for the first photos of the new prince. (And yes, those brunette locks did look amazing).
