Well, we’ve all been excited about the good news – a brand new little Prince for William and Kate. Even though we are in America, it’s still nice to celebrate some good news for a change! Prince Harry has an awesome Facebook page, and he posted some fascinating facts about royal babies that I’m sure NONE of us ever knew. For example – The Home Secretary was once required to attend the birth of a royal baby to ensure no illegitimate newborns were smuggled in. The custom was abandoned in 1948 when Prince Charles was born as it was decided the practice was “neither a statutory requirement nor a constitutional necessity”. Hmmm, Ok…

Here’s another little gem – The last time a serving monarch met a great-grandchild born in such direct succession to the throne was nearly 120 years ago. Queen Victoria was still sovereign when Edward VIII was born third in line in 1894. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby will be third in line to the throne behind Prince Charles and Prince William.

Check out more about our newest little prince, and the 18 traditions that only apply to him, and his royal ancestors!. Cheers!
