The new Prince will be introduced to a surprisingly 'normal' life in Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, write RICHARD KAY and GEOFFREY LEVY. By last night everything had been made ready in the Peter Rabbit-themed nursery (left) to welcome home George and Charlotte's new baby brother. The key figure today is Maria Borrallo, 47, (right with George and the Queen) the stern-looking, but engagingly personable, nanny who has been with the couple since the arrival of George. According to a source, Kate and William are 'very keen' to make sure George and Charlotte are as involved as possible with their new brother, 'hence the dash back to KP' before bedtime last night. For the moment, at least, William will be doing the school run. It's usually Kate, who will be keen to get back into her routine as soon as possible, listening to poppy Capital Radio over breakfast - just as Princess Diana did when William and Harry were toddlers - before anonymously joining the rush-hour traffic every morning at the wheel of a Range Rover to drop off the children.

Sarah Vine: Kate Middleton's miracle appearance after royal baby birth

Not a trace of a swollen ankle or cottage-cheese knee, not a hair out of place. As she stood on the steps of the Lindo Wing for the third time in recent years, infant cradled photogenically in her arms, the Duchess of Cambridge barely looked like she had broken a sweat, let alone delivered 8lb 7oz of bouncing baby royal just a few hours earlier.

The Duchess, 36, is extending her maternity leave until the autumn after baby number three, even though she was back on duty within six weeks of George's birth and two months of Charlotte's.

Kate and William were pictured leaving St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, in a new seven-seater Land Rover, which offered Kate plenty of legroom as she made her way home.

Alfie Evans clings to life after hospital 'removes life support'

The family of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans have released harrowing images of the two-year-old clinging to life in his mother's arms (main pictures) at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool 10 hours after his father announced last night that the little boy's life support had been removed. Tom Evans, 21, (inset today) said his son's ventilator was removed at 9pm last night but claims his doctors are 'gobsmacked' that Alfie is battling on while being cuddled by his mother Kate and is still alive. Medics have given the boy some oxygen and water but Mr Evans said his son will need further urgent medical assistance this morning if he is to survive the day.

Sarah Rainey reveals the secrets of Kate Middleton's three arrivals

Sarah Rainey says the ease with which Kate appears to have delivered her new arrival (left) is down to a trend called 'hypnobirthing' - where mothers give birth with the help of meditation techniques. Kate is believed to have used the technique for George's birth in 2013 (top right) and Princess Charlotte's back in 2015 (bottom right.) According to experts, her pregnancy diet also played a crucial part in her smooth deliveries.

The royal gave one of her favourites, Jenny Packham, the nod for the third time running after commissioning the designer to create a dress for her to wear when leaving hospital.

Pattaya's sex trade in spotlight after Australian men caught at orgy

Confronting footage taken during a police raid on an orgy on Saturday night show a glimpse of Pattaya's dark underbelly, where western tourists go to take advantage of the booming sex trade business. Images from the raid in Pattaya, often referred to as the sex capital of the world, show middle-aged men sweating heavily and rushing to cover themselves as police burst in on the illegal party (top and bottom right).

The grim reality of Pattaya's sex trade appears just as frenzied in 2018.
