Princess Charlotte’s balcony debut

Oh, Princess Charlotte is a cutie. I loved these photos of the Royal Family taken on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Saturday’s annual Trooping the Colour in celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday.

Boden’s royal bodysuits

Boden bodysuits

In honor of the birth of Britain’s royal princess, Boden has unveiled its new bodysuits for babies, complete with celebratory bunting, crowns and the union jack. It’s $40 for two. Simply smashing for the new arrival in your life!

A new princess

Congratulations to Prince William and Princess Kate on the birth of their beautiful baby daughter! And welcome to the world to the still-to-be-named new royal princess!

A quick 60-second recap of this monumental day!

Bookies are already betting that her name will be Alice or Charlotte… I’m guessing it will be more traditional like Elizabeth, perhaps with Diana as one of her middle names. Only time will tell! What do you think?

Second baby news for Will and Kate

Kate, Will and Baby George

Ah, congrats to the lovely Will and Kate on news of baby #2!

Now might be a good time to place some bets. What do you think? Girl or boy?

I think the last go-round, I was pretty psychically sure that it would be a girl (and then was clearly so wrong). This time, well, I’m going to do the reverse and say it will be a boy. A boy named Hugh, in fact. Or Lucien. Or perhaps Joffrey. (Maybe I’ve been watching too much “Game of Thrones.”)

What do you think? And what’s the latest royal name going to be this time?

Occupation: Princess

Just as I’m telling my daughter that princess-ing isn’t a real job, Prince George’s birth certificate is released to the public.

I love every little detail captured on this piece of paper! Disney couldn’t have created something this good.

The big (and royal) cheese

Westminster William and Kate Royal Addition Cheddar

What better way to welcome the future king of England than with a wheel of cheese? And not just any cheese but a Westminster William and Kate Royal Addition Cheddar!

The Kitchn.com describes its flavor: “Pleasantly sour milk, a bright lactic-ness, and decidedly cheddary goodness — linger on the tongue for quite some time.” You can get yours at Whole Foods Market for $9.99/lb.

Thanks to Ally for the tip!

Where are you in line to the throne?

Royal baby

Now that the U.K.’s future king is here (third in line to the throne, you know), it begs the question: Where am I in line to the throne?

Well, wonder no more! Try this “Where am I in line to the throne” calculator.

I am apparently 12 millionth to the throne. (No big surprise there.) How about you?

In the spirit of our times, dress up your very own royal baby, which I found on Pinterest thanks to Patz Freeman. (I particularly love the corgi on wheels.)

Royal Baby Name Generator

Will and Kate

At last! It’s happening! Best of luck to Kate and Will!

And while we wait, try this Royal Baby Name Generator! I’m getting Agnes Frances Angela Louise for a girl or Edmund Alfred Philip Michael for a boy.

How about you? 🙂

Niagara Falls in pink or blue?

Niagara Falls royal birth

Isn’t this gorgeous? Canada has plans to illuminate Niagara Falls in a pink or blue light when Will and Kate’s baby is born.

Wait. Did I say baby? I meant to say daughter because I’m so convinced that she’s having a girl. What do you think? Will Niagara Falls be blue or pink?

Thanks to Lillie for sending me this news bite!
