The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge once again are privileged to feel the parents of a newly born baby. But this time, royalty came as a ‘daughter’ with a weight of 3.5 Kgs, unlike 2012. Hospital anyways experience buzz routinely, but when day is May 2, frenzy outside St. Mary’s Hospital was quite obvious. Worth mentioning, the baby girl shares her birthday with the well-known footballer, David Beckham.
Prime Minister David Cameron said “Congratulations. I’m absolutely delighted for them. I think Prince William is a pretty relaxed dad and he seems to take everything in his stride”.
Quantum of $1 billion, from the fortunes of Queen Elizabeth, Princess Philip, Charles and Wiliam, will be inherited to the new baby girl. The royal mint will present all the Saturday-born 2015 babies a silver coin engraved with the year of their birth.
Although media spasm barged in to celebrate the birth of royalty, but the zeal today was mild with respect to that observed back in 2012. What apparently may be the cause behind this subdued excitement is the absence of novelty in being parents. Furthermore, the royal take over follows an established norm of handing over the throne to the eldest child.

“It’s always been a rather unenviable situation. There are often shades of jealousy, evident in the current queen and her sister,” said Joe Little, managing editor at Britain’s Majesty magazine, pointing out the rift between Queen Elizabeth II and the late Princess Margaret.
It’s said that the second offspring of every generation stay untouched from the stress of becoming one day a king or queen. They are known as “spares to the heir”.
As informed, Kate’s discharge would straightaway be followed by their return to Kensington Palace, before leaving for Anmer Hall, their country mansion on the queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk, eastern England.
