5 little-known things about the British royal children 0

Princess Diana and Prince Charles both held Prince William in their arms on June 22, 1982, one day after the royal baby was born.

When Princess Catherine is about to give birth to her first child in anticipation of both the royal family and the British people, let’s learn interesting things about this important event.

The birth of the royal baby was once supervised

A minister-level official was present and personally witnessed the birth of royal babies, to make sure the child was real or not switched.

This ritual began in 1688, when many officials watched Queen Mary, wife of King James II, give birth to a baby boy.

This tradition persisted into the 20th century. The birth of Princess Alexandra – Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin – in 1936 was the last time this ritual was conducted and it was officially canceled before the Crown Prince

Having to go through labor without my husband by my side

Husbands are not always with their wives at the time of labor.

Queen Elizabeth II did not receive her husband’s attention when she gave birth to Prince Charles and Prince Philip.

However, Prince Charles was present when Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William.

However, in the end, William was still by Kate’s side at the big moment.

Queen Victoria was the first person to have anesthesia during childbirth

When giving birth to Prince Leopold in 1853 and Princess Beatrice in 1857, Queen Victoria was forced to use anesthetics to relieve pain.

Dr. John Snow, who provided this medicine, is known as the father of epidemiology.

William is the first heir to the throne to be born in a hospital

Prince William was born in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital on June 21, 1982.

Giving birth in a hospital may seem normal, but for the royal family, it’s considered breaking the norm.

Prince Charles was born at Buckingham Palace, while Queen Elizabeth II was born in Mayfair (her grandparents’ home).

Royal babies don’t really have last names

Members of the royal family are often famous for having very long names.

Prince William and Prince Harry often use the surname Wales at school and when in the army, but the name actually comes from Prince Charles’s official title, Prince of Wales.

As descendants of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, William and his wife may also have used Windor or Mountbatten-Windsor, both of which were relatively new and were used during World War I.

Another option is that William and Kate could use Cambridge, the name of the country associated with both of their titles, as the surname for their first child.
