New details have emerged about Kate Middleton's pregnancy experience. In particular, when the time came to actually welcome Prince George into the world.

"She spoke to some of her best girlfriends after the birth and described the birth as perfect," a source told Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl, whose upcoming biography on the Duchess of Cambridge is previewed in the magazine's latest issue.

According to The Daily Mail, the source added, "She said it was straightforward and there were no complications. She wanted a natural birth and she was so happy she was able to have one."

The Vanity Fair article also goes on to reveal that Prince William immediately became quite the doting dad.

"He is absolutely loving it and he's a natural father," a friend, who saw the proud papa just two weeks after George's birth, told Nicholl. "He is very relaxed and happy at home with [Kate's parents] Carole and Michael, whom he gets along with well. He joked that it was nice to have a bit of peace and quiet to get out to play polo. It was very sweet: he said that he wanted George to grow into a polo player and that he would teach his son to ride from a young age."

What's more, the new parents chose not to bring in a maternity nurse.

"William said he didn't want a nanny or nurse coming in and doing shifts," says another friend. "They were agreed on that. They wanted to do the early days themselves."

Sounds like little George is in good hands.
