The birth of a new royal era
IT’S going to be a busy spring for Wills and Kate in 2018. Royal Baby No.3 is set to make his or her debut in April. Which may perhaps be obliquely connected to the fact that it’s just been announced that Princess Charlotte will be starting at a mega-posh nursery in January — nothing like getting the toddler out of the house for a few hours when there’s a newborn around, eh?
Especially considering that the big wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is due to take place in May — when Kate will just be a few weeks post-partum. Of course, she’ll no doubt be an old hand at the new baby routine by now.
But for even the most experienced mother, the idea of having to face the world’s press at a formal occasion while still in the “leaky and weepy” phase, that almost inevitably follows childbirth, is daunting to say the least.
Tissues and breast-pads at the ready!
