Absence of the Queen

Surely, the Queen and other members of the royal family as well as Kate’s relatives have been informed, and everyone is happy with the news.


However, according to royal tradition, the Queen had to be present during the labor and be the first person to be informed of the baby’s birth even before Prince William.


Another royal tradition is to put a framed notice of birth on a ceremonial easel on the forecourt at the Buckingham Palace. The notice will remain on display for approximately 24 hours.

According to Buckingham Palace spokesperson, Her Majesty remains in Windsor Castle. Apparently, the Queen wouldn’t visit Kate and William at the hospital and is likely to see the newborn after the proud parents will come back to Kensington Palace. The Queen visited Prince George and Princess Charlotte the exact same way.


We can’t wait to know the name of the baby and see his very first photo together with Her Majesty! We congratulate Kate and William with the addition! God bless!
