Her birth was much anticipated.

But we may not have to wait too much longer to catch our first glimpse of the new Princess of Cambridge.

Princess Kate and Prince William are expected to show off their daughter within hours, insiders tell PEOPLE.

The proud couple will step through the famous doors of the private Lindo Wing before light fades in London, the sources say.

That means they will not have time for visits from grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton, and Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Upon the birth of Prince George, on July 22, 2013, there was a parade of visitors before Kate and William emerged with their newborn.

However, it’s still up in the air whether royal fans will get to see the newly minted big brother, now 21 months, on the steps with his parents and brand new little sister.

It’s likely that the couple will introduce their princess to their families when they get back to their Apartment 1a at Kensington Palace.

A source tells PEOPLE the couple will of course come out of the front door in full view of the media and fans. But, the source says, “It will be more low-key than last time.”

Chatter about them coming out earlier than expected was sparked when hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker, the woman behind Kate’s lustrous locks, was said to have been seen entering the hospital.

A royal protection officer was also seen carrying changes of clothes. That could be either for William or Kate.
