ROYAL BABY: It’s a girl!

NEW PRINCESS - Royal baby 2015 - It's a girl!


It’s a girl!

Congratulations to the Cambridge and Middleton families.

Here’s hoping everyone is happy and healthy, and that Prince George quickly learns to adore his baby sister.

Revisit our photos from the birth of Prince George in July 2013 and remember to vote for your favourite name in our Royal Baby Name Poll.

According to the couple’s official Twitter account, Kate was admitted to the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London at 6am.

The baby girl weighs 8lbs 3oz and was born at 8.34am on Saturday May 2, 2015. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

The family are due to spend some time at their London home, Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, and then move to their country property, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk. You might also be interested in the Middleton family’s home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

More details to follow.

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The Theory of Everything soundtrack




We’ve been loving this year’s crop of Oscar-worthy soundtracks, especially Interstellar (Hans Zimmer), The Imitation Game (Alexandre Desplat) and The Theory of Everything (Jóhann Jóhannsson), but this track (number 17: Camping) from The Theory of Everything is my absolute favourite.

It’s only very short but it makes me tear up a little each time I hear it. I think it’s because it’s both about the music (the cello) and the sentiment (lovers uniting after years of longing).

Do take a moment to play it, as well as the rest of the soundtrack. It’s by Jóhann Jóhannsson.
