“She just really talked about her own children including how they chose their names,” Amy shared with People. “A lot of the new mums and dads are thinking about how to choose names for their babies, and they spoke with her about how Kate and William made their choice.

She also spoke to Bianca’s mum, Sylvia Novak, who gave birth six weeks prematurely

“She said they were their favourite names and that obviously the world was waiting for them to name their children — and that felt like quite a big pressure!” she added, with a laugh.

Kate also enjoyed a cuddle with little Bianca Moran, who was born at 34 weeks and five days and is being looked after by a specialist team at the hospital. “She’s very sweet,” the Princess told Bianca’s mum Sylvia.

The Princess’s visit included time with babies who had been born in the previous 48 hours, and she empathised with their parents’ birth stories.

Kate thoughtfully said: “No matter how much everyone tells you what you expect, it’s a shock to the system isn’t it? You have this idea of what will happen but every single birth is different.”

She went on: “As nurturing as I know the hospital is, there’s nothing like being in your own home. And I bet your families are desperate to see you all.”
