New birth
« on: May 02, 2015, 05:56:38 am »
Welcome to the world to the new daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Aw, I feel for the Duchess of Cambridge.  Nobody's going to leave her alone for a minute to enjoy her new little girl.

And if her son is any indication, I bet the new baby is just adorable.  :)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

It's a girl. 8lbs 3oz.
Wonderful!
She is fourth inline to the thrown now that daughters can ascend to the English thrown.

Because Kate was running overdue, I was starting to think it was a boy. Boys are known to need more baking time.  :) But I was glad I was wrong.  ;D

Congratulations to the "Cambridges"!   ;D  And now we wait to learn what they've named her.

8 lbs. 3 oz.  Ouch!

But congratulations and hope everyone is doing well.

Can you imagine, 10 hours after giving birth, Kate then walks out of the hospital, babe in arms, looking photo beautiful. That is dedication to the public. I hope her next few weeks will be calm and quite with lots of mother/baby time.

And her name is... drum roll (21 gun salute booming out across London actually which as a radio announcer pointed out is exactly what you want when you've just got a new baby)

Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Very very diplomatic.

Charlotte's a nice name. We nearly had a Queen Charlotte once, before Queen Victoria but she died young.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,

Awww! Lovely name.

I was thinking about Princess Charlotte as a name sake. I have a book of royal fashion and a few of her portraits are given. She was a lovely young lady.

I approve of the name. (Not that my opinion matters ;D)

You're as entitled to your opinion as any of the other several million people who have put their penn'orth (dime's worth??) in.

Nice name! Includes both parents (Charlotte being a feminine form of Charles) and the Royal Grandmum, so quite diplomatic indeed.  :)

And her name is... drum roll (21 gun salute booming out across London actually which as a radio announcer pointed out is exactly what you want when you've just got a new baby)

LOL!  Oh, so very THIS, quoted for truth!  Let's just hope little Princess Charlotte is not a light sleeper, because I'm sure her Mum would like some rest now.   ;D
