Reports are unclear if Kate and Prince George were joined by Carole Middleton (I have read conflicting articles - some articles say it was Prince George's nanny) and a security detail.

On Sunday, they visited Bucklebury Farm Park where children can meet a variety of animals from lambs to wild boar and enjoy a large outdoor playground. The little prince is a frequent visitor to the park with both his mother, nanny and grandmother.

 Additional Details Coming Out About the Arrival of Baby Cambridge #2
 
***Since Prince George was born at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital, this time the Duchess will be given 10% off the pricey fees as part of a loyalty discount to mothers who go back to have a second child.
 
ABC News
 
 ***Prices have increased since George was delivered. A suite of two rooms now costs £6,570 for a one-night stay with normal delivery - £5,913 with Kate's 10% off - plus consultant fees of around £6,000. Prices will, again, go up again in July.
 
***Last time Kate gave birth 10 and a half hours after being admitted to hospital, but this royal baby is likely to make an appearance even earlier.
 
***It has been 182 years since another Princess of Cambridge was born. The last was King George III's granddaughter Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge who was born in Hanover, Germany in 1833.
