Just seven hours later, she and Prince William left the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s for the comforts of home at Kensington Palace. The quick departure may come from practice — Kate stayed at the hospital for 10 hours after Princess Charlotte’s birth and overnight with Prince George — but she also has more reasons to get a move on than the non-royal mom. The short stay definitely marked a departure from the typical birth. New moms in the U.K. spend on average a day and a half in the hospital, while American mothers usually rest up for two, according to The Guardian.
