I was very pleased when I learnt of the birth of their son; am very happy her delivery was relatively trouble free.  Then I just learnt read about his hospital stay here; does anyone know what the little guy was allergic too?

The article makes it sound pretty minor. It's not clear what the allergy is to, since he was too young to be eating food. Maybe to the milk or something else in formula (unless he is being breastfed)?

I would guess a formula, when my neice was young she had an allergic reation to the formula she was orignally given and had to be put on something with soy....so that might be it...because he is far too young to be eating any kind of food as of yet...


I am.

Could be an airborne or topical allergy, not necessarily a food-related one. Some babies have very bad reactions to powder, for instance, or some of the components in disposable diapers--much like people with latex allergies.

I don't think I would be able to attend the awards thingy, but when the royals are in town they always stay at the hotel that is right next door to my workplace.  If there are some comings and goings at the right time, I may be able to see him 'in the flesh' so to speak.  If I managed it, that would up my royals count to three (I saw Anne when she visited when I was about 11 or so and I saw HM QEII when she was here on the jubilee tour), which I'm sure seems like a very low number to people, but hey I'm trying!

Here's the group shot

"According to the press release from the Palace, Viscount Severn will be the first baby to be christened in the new gown recently commissioned by the Queen. It is a replica of the one previously worn by several generations. The Press Association says that the new gown was made by the Queen's personal assistant Angela Kelly and the in-house dressmaking team at Buckingham Palace.

Some background information from the press release announcing Lady Louise's christening in 2004:

"The Royal christening robe, of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

In 1894 the robe was given by Queen Victoria to the Duchess of York (later Queen Mary), all of whose children were christened in it.

In the next generation it was worn by the children of King George VI, of Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, and of Prince George, Duke of Kent.

The children of The Queen and of Princess Margaret were christened in it, and it has subsequently been used for the christenings of all The Queens grandchildren and other Royal babies, including the grand children of Princess Margaret." "

From the Daily Mail



"The ceremony was watched by the Queen and Prince Philip, Princess Anne and Prince Andrew, who turned down an invitation to golfer Colin Montgomerie's wedding to be at his little nephew's big day.

Prince Charles and Camilla chose not to interrupt a weekend at their Aberdeenshire retreat of Birkhall.

James became the first Royal baby to wear a hand-made christening gown commissioned by the Queen.

The gown, made by the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly and Buckingham Palace's team of dressmakers, is a replica of one of Queen Victoria's daughters' christening gowns which was worn at subsequent Royal christenings, including that of James's four-year-old sister Louise, but has now been preserved.

James is the Queen's eighth grandchild and one observer said: "His sister Lady Louise absolutely dotes on her little brother.

"She kisses him and cuddles him and is a real little mother to him. It's lovely."

Like Louise, he has five godparents, all drawn from Edward and Sophie's thoroughly sensible "court".

There is Alistair Bruce, a Scots Guard Falklands veteran who taught Sophie to windsurf more than a decade ago and became a firm friend, Duncan Bullivant, Thomas Hill, Mrs Mark Poulton and Sophie's former flatmate, American Jeanye Irwin.

There was a champagne reception to wet the baby's head afterwards."

What do we think of Sophie's outfit for the wedding?

She seems to have slimmed down quickly after giving birth...

No little Lady Louise in the group pic unless I am missing her somewhere?

The dress looks great on a slimmed down Sophie but the hat/bush growing out of the side of her head must go!
