Today is a momentous day and no, not because I had raspberry meringue for my lunch! The Duchess of Cambridge is in labour and almost ready to produce a new King or Queen, who will be third in line to the throne, whether the baby is a boy or a girl.
Naturally I am thrilled about this. It is exciting stuff. I love that we have a Royal Family even though they are expensive. Without them our country would not be what it is. Tourists love them and come from far and wide to see the Queen or anyone else they can get a glimpse of.
So I’m writing this in the afternoon. I have no idea yet what sex the baby will be. I hope he/she will be born healthy. Perhaps it will be a new Sun King? Today is the hottest day of the year so far, nearly 30 degrees and still rising and tonight is a full moon. Surely that is good news for a baby. No doubt the astrologers will be working on charts as soon as baby is born and of course there is much speculation about names.
Personally I favour Victoria if it’s a girl and Philip if it’s a boy. What do you think?
