The Royal Baby has arrived

July 23, 2013

Now, I know this is a topic that many people are celebrating, but some don’t want to hear any more about it. But, I am the culture girl, and I like tradition and my studies do take me to learning about the monarchy, even thought they were very different 800 years ago, so I am going to do a short post on the arrival of the royal baby!

On Monday the 22nd of July, crowds gathered outside St Mary’s hospital, along with the press who had been there for weeks now, waiting, and crowds lined the gates at Buckingham Palace, waiting for the arrival of the royal baby.

At around 5.30am, the Duchess of Cambridge was driven by her husband, Prince William, to St Mary’s hospital, and following an eleven hour labour she delivered a baby boy. We don’t know the name yet, apparently Charles doesn’t know yet, but we soon will. The Duchess will be leaving the hospital either today or tomorrow, and hopefully we will get a glimpse of the future King. I am slightly disappointed the baby wasn’t a girl, a Queen would have been nice, and of course, to really show that the new law was in place, a girl and then a boy would have been perfect, but a healthy baby is all any mother wants.

We shall now wait and watch, because this baby will be watched all of it’s life. I hope that the Duke and Duchess can give him some form of a normal upbringing, and that he won’t be hounded by the press as his mother his.

What do you think of the royal baby, unnecessary hype, or cause for national celebration?
