Summer treat from Duchess of Cambridge

It was a normal Sunday for the Cambridge household. Duchess of Cambridge was seen enjoying a day out with Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the Houghton Horse Trials.

It seems the Cambridge family spent the weekend at their country retreat Anmer Hall in Sandringham.

Houghton Hall is the official residence of the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley, William and Catherine’s Norfolk neighbours.

It seems the horse trials are a sort of family day for Duke and Duchess as William and Catherine were spotted on the same trials in 2016 too with George and Charlotte.

Last year during an interview, Prince William revealed that Catherine is a keen amateur photographer and takes photos of the children “every day”. The portrait of Charlotte and Louis seems like a random moment captured by the Duchess perfectly.

Another interesting fact about the portrait is the sweater worn by Princess Charlotte. Do you remember it?  No, let me refresh your memory!!

 

It is the same sweater Prince George wore in the official portrait issued on the 90th birthday of their Great-Grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, in which Her Majesty shared the spotlight with her all great-grandchildren.

After 5 hours of labour, Duchess gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 11:01 AM. Prince William was present at the time of their baby’s birth. Kensington Palace announced that mother and baby are doing well. The weight of the baby was 8lbs 7oz and the new Prince was bigger than his elder siblings at the time of birth.

As per the royal tradition, a framed notice of the birth was put on display on a ceremonial easel on the forecourt at the Buckingham Palace. Notices have been posted on the occasion of a Royal birth for at least as long as Buckingham Palace has been the Sovereign’s official residence (from 1837).

The notice will be on display for approximately 24 hours. When it is taken down, it is sent to the Privy Council Office so that the details of the birth may be recorded in the Privy Council records.

To mark the birth of the new Prince flags have been raised at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

At 4 PM a smiling Prince William came out of the Lindo Wing and left for Kensington Palace saying “back in a minute”.

After introducing their third baby to the world, the happy couple went back inside to came out in a few minutes to leave for their home hand in hand.

Upon their departure Kensington Palace said, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace. Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank all staff at the hospital for the care and treatment they have received. They would also like to thank everyone for their warm wishes.”

While leaving William jokingly said ” thrice the worry now” and about the name, he said, “you’ll find out soon enough”. I am believing that Duke and Duchess would like to pay tribute to Duke’s Grandfather Prince Philip by giving new Cambridge Prince his name. This is my guess for the baby name is “Arthur Philip James”. What is yours?

Duchess made hat-trick for her Lindo Wing dress. Just like at the birth of Prince George and Princess Charlotte this time too Kate chose her trusted designer Jenny Packham. This time it was a beautiful red number with peter pan collar in lace.

The dress looked similar to the dress worn by Catherine’s late Mother-in-law Diana Princess of Wales while leaving Lindo Wing after the birth of Prince Harry in 1984.

I am expecting the announcement of the name for a new baby in a day or two after Duchess and family is settled down with a new baby in her home. The baby will be styled as His Royal Highness Prince <Name> of Cambridge. I do hope its Arthur Philip. Stay tuned till then.
