Naturally, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have both met their younger sibling. 

“George and Charlotte were with the baby for 25 minutes and were very excited to meet their new sibling,” a source close to the royal family revealed to Us Weekly. “It’s unlikely they’ll be asleep when William and Kate arrive home. They’ll be up all night, excited about their new brother.”
