The Princess of Cambridge was born. She is the first female born in the royal family for more than quarter of a century. If the Queen wore a pink outfit, her big brother, Prince George managed to steal the show, giving the crowds long series of waves as he was taken by Prince William into the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital.
The new baby princess, who was just ten hours old and whose name is yet to be announced, was sleeping through her first Royal appearance in public in front of the hospital, as Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge showed her off before going back to their London residence, Kensington Palace. Prince William said he felt ‘’very happy’’ shortly after he left the hospital when Prince George was born, but now, the royal couple did not make any comments to the world’s media gathered on the steps of the hospital.
The Princess’ birth has initiated a wave of excitement across Britain which has been previously occupied with election discussions. Retailers believe the interest in the Princess’ clothes and baby-ware will boost the British economy by more than $300 million a year.
Kate appeared to be remarkably fresh and rested after the birth. She was taken to the hospital at 6am, and gave birth more than two and a half hours later to a baby girl weighting 8 lbs 3 ozs at 8.34am.
Alice is the one of the main favorites to be the name, just ahead of Charlotte. However, there has been a huge amount of betting on the name Olivia. The name is is going to be released once the Queen has given her blessing to the fourth in line to the British throne.
The Queen was attending a military parade in North Yorkshire which marked the amalgamation of the Queen’s 9th and 10th Royal regiments into the Royal Lancers. She wore an eye-bright pink coat and hat for the occasion.
Royal analysts believe she would have had two outfits prepared – the other one was blue — as a symbolic gesture to her third great grand daughter. The other two, Isla and Savannah, were born born to Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn. Since the birth of Princess Eugenie back in 1990 there hasn’t been a baby girl born in direct line to the British throne.
