London - According to an article published in the October issue of Vanity Fair the Duchess of Cambridge was very nervous to appear before the press shortly after giving birth to the third in line to the British throne.

The article reveals that Kate had a "perfect, natural birth" when she welcomed baby George into the world on 22 July.

A source told the magazine that Kate was extremely pleased that she could have a natural birth without any complications.

Kate’s arrival:

The article also sheds light on new details surrounding Kate's arrival at the hospital in the early hours of the morning.

The Duchess was spotted by waiting photographers wearing a dark shawl and her hair loose around her shoulders. However there are no photos of this brief private moment as photographers decided it would be inappropriate to snap her.

The Vanity Fair article also reports that the Duchess's hairdresser, Amanda Cook Tucker, was on standby for the entire month of July.

The hair stylist, who arrived at the hospital with an assistant, was also responsible for bringing a selection of dresses for Kate to choose from for her first post-baby appearance outside the hospital, Mail Online reported.

Despite having a team of experts by her side the Duchess was apparently still very emotional at the time, and "incredibly nervous" about posing for the press, though William was on hand with plenty of reassurance.
