For one thing, fathers of royal babies are not allowed in the delivery room. It is a long-standing tradition, but Prince William is one royal who has not been particular about observing it. In fact, he was present in the delivery room at the birth of all his three children.

While this may not seem like a big slight to the Queen, it signifies the changing time in Britain. Previously, Prince Phillip stayed in the delivery room when Prince Edward was born in 1964. Clearly, both men were keen on being a part of the beautiful moment, even if it meant attracting the ire of Her Majesty.

For all its worth, it seems intimate moments like this contributed to the strong relationship that Prince William and Kate Middleton have. With seven years of marriage under their belt and three lovely children, life never looked better.
