Prince William

 

We got a glimpse of the new price when Kate and William stepped outside St. Mary's Hospital on April 23, 2018, and now, the Duke and Duchess have kindly released the first official photos of their darling son, and they are far too cute.

Kensington Palace shared the photos on behalf of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

They wrote, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess at Kensington Palace."

As per tradition,  Kate took the photos herself at ‬Kensington Palace.

"This image of Prince Louis was taken by The Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace on 26th April.‬ ‪The Duke and Duchess would like to thank members of the public for their kind messages following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.‬"

The parents also shared a stunning photo of Princess Charlotte kissing her baby brother's forehead as she holds him in her arms. The image was taken on Charlotte's third birthday, May 2, 2018.

It looks like Charlotte has taken to her new role as a big sister like a duck to water.

The young princess and her brother Prince George were the first to meet their newborn brother, after Prince William of course, when he was born on Monday, April 23.

Kate gave birth to her son at 11:01 am, with Louis weighing in at 8lbs 7oz.

Kate and William revealed that their son’s full name is Louis Arthur Charles.

The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the new royal baby is named Prince Louis Arthur Charles.

The official title given to Will and Kate’s second son is His Royal Highest (HRH) Prince Louis Arthur Charles, and he will be fifth in line for the throne.

Louis may not come as a surprise as it has been embedded throughout royal history and has some very close family ties.

Prince Louis' name references his own father, Prince William, who holds the name as his middle name, along with Prince George.

The Baptism:

Royal babies are usually baptised within two or three months after their birth. Prince George was baptised in October 2013 and Princess Charlotte was in July 2015.

According to The Telegraph, royal babies tend to follow Queen Victoria’s tradition of being baptised over the Lily Front. Queen Victoria started the practice in 1841 with her eldest daughter Princess Victoria.

According to reports, six godparents were selected for Princess Charlotte and seven for Prince George. The water from the Jordan River is used in the ceremony.

Both Georges' and Charlotte’s services were held in private, but during Charlotte’s baptism, members of the public were welcomed to come to the churchyard.

It is reported that both Kate and Prince Louis are doing well and in a tweet, Kensington Palace thanked the hospital staff on Kate’s behalf.

Prince Louis was born on Monday at 11.01am and weighed in at 8lbs 7oz. The name Arthur was the bookmaker’s firm favourite with 9/4 odds.

Do you think the name Louis is a good fit for a prince?

There’s less than a month to go until the wedding of the year. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19.

We’ve been finding out all the wedding details as we inch closer and closer to Harry and Meghan’s big day.

We know what flowers the Suits actress will have in her bouquet, we know what the invites look like, we know what music they’ll have during the church ceremony, and now we finally know who will be Prince Harry’s best man.

Kensington Palace revealed that Prince William will be his best man at his wedding to Meghan Markle.

“Prince Harry has asked his brother The Duke of Cambridge to be his Best Man at his wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle,” Kensington Palace confirmed.

Harry served as best man to The Duke of Cambridge at his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.

William said he is honoured to be Harry’s best man, “The Duke of Cambridge is honoured to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St George's Chapel, Windsor on May 19th.”

Prince William recently spoke about how they grew close after the tragic death of their mum Princess Diana. “Our relationship is closer than it's been because of the situation we've been through. Losing our mother at a young age it's helped us travel through that difficult patch together,” William admitted.

The Duke of Cambridge explained that supporting one another through the grieving process strengthened their relationship, “You're like-minded. You go through similar things, it's a bond and it's something you know you've tackled together and come out better for it."

William was 15-years-old, and Harry was 12-years-old when Diana lost her life following a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris, in 1997.

Prince William and Prince Harry were also born at St. Mary’s Hospital.

Reports claim that the doting parents will reveal their son’s name in the coming days.

It has been reported that Pippa Middleton is expecting her first child. The Sunday Express stated that The Duchess of Cambridge's sister has recently shared the joyous news with her family and friends.

A source told the Sunday Express, "When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled and utterly overjoyed."

Kate was the second person to find out about her sister's pregnancy. The source said that the soon to be mum-of-three "could not have been more delighted" for her younger sister.

“Naturally, big sister Kate and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told — James aside — and they could not have been more delighted," they added.

Pippa and James tied the knot in the May of 2017. The source said that the couple have always wanted to have children, "They have made the most of their first few months of marriage and felt the time was right to expand their family.”

It is understood that Pippa will welcome her first child in the autumn time.

Huge congratulations to Pippa and James!

We all know that royal life is steeped in tradition, from the way they celebrate Christmas to how they announce the birth of a new family member.

Of course, much of that custom comes into play when it comes to the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and his bride-to-be, Meghan Markle.

One particular tradition means that Prince Harry can't technically pick William to be his best man.

In fact, Harry won't have a best man at all.

Instead, he, like past royal grooms, will choose 'supporters'.

"The 'best man' or 'best men' are officially called 'supporters'," British and European royalty expert Marlene Koenig explained to Town & Country, "William will probably be Harry's supporter."

Back in 1981, Prince Charles chose his brothers, Andrew and Edward, to be his supporters when the Prince of Wales married Diana.

The Duke of Cambridge, however, broke with tradition when he dubbed Harry his best man, according to The Guardian.

As far as we know, William has not been asked to be his younger brother's supporter or best man – yet.

Considering Harry's tendency to break with tradition, we could see the 33-year-old potentially calling his brother his best man if he chooses Will.

The two are so close it seems likely that Harry will pick his big brother to be there by his side as he marries the love of his life.

Either way, we can't wait until the big day! May 19, here we come!

A statement was read at the opening of a criminal case brought by the Royals over the pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge taken when she was sunbathing topless in France in 2012

Prince William described the decision to publish the pictures as 'shocking'.

He said it brought back awful memories of the 'harassment' similar to how his mother Diana was treated by photographers and has demanded €1.5 million in compensation.

The Telegraph reports that the couple is also seeking a significant fine from France's Closer magazine which reproduced the photos which were taken during a holiday at a chateau in the South of France six years ago.

The case is being played out in a court in Paris where six people are on trial for alleged invasion of privacy.

Here is part of William's statement which was read out in court by the couple's solicitor Jean Veil:

"In September 2012, my wife and I thought that we could go to France for a few days in a secluded villa owned by a member of my family, and thus enjoy our privacy.

"We know France and the French and we know that they are, in principle, respectful of private life, including that of their guests. The clandestine way in which these photographs were taken was particularly shocking to us as it breached our privacy."

The Duke went on to say that the photographs “reminded us of the harassment that led to the death of my mother, Diana Princess of Wales".

The pictures were taken by a long-lens and also showed Kate having suncream rubbed into her by Prince William as well as sunbathing topless on a private terrace at the property.

A representative from Closer magazine revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has demanded €1.5 million damages from his client.

The verdict is expected on July 4th.

Prince Harry created a media storm when he released a statement regarding the treatment of his new girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle.

The statement was very emotional, as he addressed the media for treating Meghan with "sexism and racism".

However, it looks like Harry's big brother William is not very happy about the public message.

A source told the Daily Mail: "He thinks Harry made a mistake in confirming the relationship and releasing such an emotional statement so soon.

"William knows that his brother can be hot-headed and understands that it is something he felt very strongly about.

"Privately, he shares a lot of the sentiments he and Meghan expressed as, make no mistake, she was very involved in the statement too."

Let's hope the brothers can find common ground with this one.

17 months on from the arrival of Princess Charlotte, bookies are gearing up for another Royal birth.

As Will and Kate return home from their first Royal tour with the kids, bookmakers in the UK are speculating that the couple will make their third pregnancy announcement in the coming year.

According to The Mirror, the odds for 2017 Royal baby news have dropped to 4/6, while it’s now 4/1 that a revelation will be made before the current year is out.

A Ladbrokes spokesperson told the paper: “The sight of Kate and Wills with George and Charlotte has sent royal baby watchers into overdrive.”

“A 2016 announcement seems unlikely but if the money’s to be believed 2017 looks like a certainty.”

The world's most handsome royal has now been revealed… and it's no surprise that none-other than red-headed hottie Harry has scooped the crown.

The 31-year-old, who is very much single, topped the global poll of ten titled hunks.

Also featured were the likes of runner-up Prince Carl Philip, 37, fourth in line to the throne in Sweden, and third-placed Andrea Casiraghi, 37, who is fourth in line to the throne of Monaco.

In fifth place was Prince Félix, 32, who is second in line for the throne of Luxembourg. He speaks seven languages.

King Felipe VI of Spain came in seventh place and eighth place went to 30-year-old Prince Amedeo of Belgian.

Sadly, Harry's elder bro William only made it to No.9 – something which Crown Clinic in Manchester, a top hair transplant centre, says is down to his lack of hair. 

"What is interesting about the poll is where Prince William would have finished if it had been conducted five or ten years ago," Crown hair transplant surgeon Asim Shahmalak said.

"I suspect that he would have been level or even ahead of his younger brother Harry.

"William has dropped down the rankings because he has lost most of his hair and is now even more bald than his father Prince Charles."

He also warned: "There is every chance that it will be passed down to Prince William's son Prince George when he grows up."

With a growing number of children and families seeking help from mental health services, the Duchess of Cambridge has been speaking about the benefits that decision can have.

Sharing her support for a series of podcasts that aim to parents how to understand their child's mental health, Kate outlined that there is still a long way to go before e destigmatism the issue.

"One in three adults still say they would be embarrassed to seek help for their child's mental health.

"No parent would fail to call the doctor if their child developed a fever, yet some children are tackling tough times without the support that can help them because the adults in their life are scared to ask. It doesn’t need to be like this."

William and Kate have both been very active in their work for children's mental health awareness supporting campaigns such as Heads Together and it sounds like Kate has taken a lot away from that experience.

"Throughout my work with family and child support organisations, one thing that has stood out to me time and again is that getting early support for a child who is struggling to cope is the best possible thing we can do to help our children as they grow up.

"Knowing this, both William and I feel very strongly that we wouldn’t hesitate to get expert support for George and Charlotte if they need it."

Kate finished by highlighting the important and incredibly valuable work that mental health services are providing for children and that families should not be afraid to seek that support.

"I hope that this excellent series of podcasts by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families will go some way to help families overcome that fear of what happens next if they look for professional support.

"They illustrate that many of the therapies are actually very simple and practical steps that include the whole family to help children make sense of the world around them.

"They show how with the right help, children have a good chance of overcoming their issues while they are still young, and can have the bright future they deserve."

 

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and Patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, has supported the launch of a series of podcasts designed to help parents understand children's mental health.
