A Royal Baby

The only news that has me glued to social media and the TV the past few days is the birth of Britain’s new princess!!  I am so excited and happy for William and Kate as they bring home their new addition to the family.  I love the name Charlotte, as it’s perfect for a princess and certainly has much meaning to the family:

  • It’s the feminine version of her grandfather’s name, Charles
  • Her aunt, Pippa, was given this name as her middle name
  • King George III’s wife was named Charlotte

The name is also known for:

  • Princess Charlotte Casiraghi, Grace Kelly’s granddaughter
  • Charlotte the spider from Charlotte’s Web
  • Famous opera singer, Charlotte Church
  • The author of Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte
  • Charlotte Perkins Gilman, women’s civil rights leader

I cannot (well, actually, I can!) believe how well Kate looked in her yellow dress after the birth on the steps of the Lindo Wing, just 11 hours after delivering her daughter — does she ever take a terrible photo?  I don’t think so.  I’d love to know if she even owns a pair of sweatpants!?!

Here’s a photo of her birth certificate, released today via Kensington Palace’s Twitter account:royal-baby-birth-certificateBest of luck to the family.  I sure cannot wait for more updates!
