The Duchess of Cambridge was the target of Whoopi who laughed at the new mother after she appeared looking beautiful just hours after she had given birth. The Oscar winner claimed “you could see in her face” that she wanted to “get the hell out of there” as she stood being snapped by members of the public and the worldwide media. Such was the excitement around the birth of Louis, royal fans across the globe were waiting to see the arrival of the newborn child, especially as the new mother and father are pictured outside the iconic Lindo wing of London’s St Mary’s Hospital.
It has become part of tradition that royal mothers and fathers show off the Windsor’s latest addition, with the likes of Princess Diana and Prince Charles displaying sons Prince William and Prince Harry for the world to see.
But after it emerged that Kate had been giving birth just two hours before the snaps were taken, the likes of Whoopi couldn’t resist making a joke about the affair.
Whoopi said: “Kate Middleton had a baby boy yesterday and a lot of people lost their minds because when she walked out of the hospital after giving birth she looked like this…”
A picture of a smiling Kate, alongside William and baby Louis was then shown, as members of The View set giggled at the jibe.
Another panellist joked that it showed Kate was “just like us” after giving birth and wearing high heel shoes as she posed for photographs with the new arrival.
But then a second guest added: “Still she had to walk, my crotch was on fire after I gave birth. My God!”
A third panellist, Sunny Hostin, explained that she had “two C-sections, like 31 percent of the country, and I didn’t even look like that laying down in the bed”.
Whoopi then teased: “If you look at her face, she knows, ‘I have to pose here for a few minutes and then I’m walking to the car and I’m getting the hell out of here’.

Kate is said to have cheekily replied: “Let’s hope he stays like this!”
Louis, fifth-in-line to the throne, was born on April 23, 2018, and to mark his birth gun salutes from the Tower of London and the bells of Westminster Abbey were heard.
His godparents are Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Gillingham Carter, and Lucy Middleton.
