The mother, Princess Diana: 1982
Princess Diana, who was just 20 when she gave birth to her first child, wore an oversized green polka dot maternity dress by one of her favorite British designers, Catherine Walker and accessorized with pink flats adorned with a bow. The royal couple happily posed for cameras, but did not speak to reporters. Diana reportedly said she was nervous and emotional when leaving the hospital.
