I wasn't expecting the name Archie!

The Duchess of Sussex delivered a healthy baby boy early this morning as announced by the proud papa, Prince Harry.

Congratulations to this lovely couple! My hope is that the little one is named Spencer after his mother's maiden name. As far as the little one being granted letters patent to be styled "his royal highness" and a royal prince, my hunch is that that will not happen. I don't think Prince Harry wants his children to be hindered by royal titles. So, he will most likely be styled the Earl Dumbarton or Lord Dumbarton one of his Prince Harry's subsidiary titles. Again, this is just a hunch, I could be completely wrong on all counts!

Time will tell...

Reflections on the royal wedding...I've been waiting for this day a long time! Prince Harry has always had a special place in my heart. He couldn't have chosen a more perfect partner to share his life with. Being a huge anglophile, I am beyond proud that Meghan is American and hails from my home state. What a beautiful woman and soul she is. Her wedding dress was so classic and so lovely. Perfect. I'm so happy she wore a tiara and one that we have not seen since the 30's (I'm hugely into the jewels of the Royal Families of Europe, but especially of Great Britain). Queen Mary's bandeau tiara was such a gorgeous choice, and it will become Meghan's tiara now to wear at royal functions. I was thinking that Harry would have a new one made that would be uniquely hers, but since the bandeau hasn't been in use for so long, it's basically like seeing a new tiara. Her veil...oh my, how dramatic and how stunning. She paid tribute to all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her 5-meter long wedding veil, which represented the flowers of each Commonwealth country. She also incorporated two flowers with personal meaning: Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which is grown outside her Nottingham Cottage home with Prince Harry, and California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica), the state flower from her place of birth. Meghan’s veil also included crops of wheat delicately embroidered and blended into the flora, to symbolise love and charity. I was so pleased to see Harry choose to wear a wedding band on his wedding finger. William chose not to. His father wears a little pinky gold band with his signet ring. Prince Phillip also shunned a wedding band. Good on you Harry! The flowers were amazing decorating all the archways and entrances...just stunning. I also loved how the seat next to William was empty...because it reserved for his Mom, Princess Diana. Meghan incorporated some of Diana's favorite flowers into her bridal bouquet. So many happy memories made today! It brings me back to that day in July 1981 getting up early to watch his Mom and Dad get married. I'll leave with 1 Corinthians 13:4-: "...Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres..."

Many, many congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex!!!

From what I've read, it's most likely a nod to Louis Mountbatten, Earl Mountbatten of Burma...Prince Phillip's uncle, HM's second cousin and Prince Charles' honorary grandfather.

I know these are early days, but there is an uncanny Spencer resemblance to Prince Louis around his eyes. I could be totally wrong and I probably am. Like I said, it's still early days.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles...lovey. Louis is quite a surprise, but a wonderfully welcome one. Little Prince Louis...I love it!!!

No name news yet...I've been hoping they'd announce the wee one's name today. Looks like it will be left for tomorrow?! I sure hope so.

My name guess: Albert Charles Michael

Congratulations to William and Kate on the birth of their new little prince on this day, Monday, April 23, 2018!

Which Royal Dukedom will HM bestow upon Harry for his marriage? Let's speculate.

My gut tells me it will be Sussex, but my heart wants Ross for he and Meghan.

Yesterday, Mon., Nov. 28th, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement from the sunken garden of KP. They will wed in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

This is the BEST news!!! I am over the moon with happiness for them both! What a gorgeous couple they make. Their happiness just radiates...they are going to be such an awesome couple!

I must admit I am somewhat proud that Meghan is an American and she hails from my home state of California. I am looking so forward to Prince Harry's wedding. For the whole of his life, he has had a special place in my heart. May happiness forever rain down upon them.

Three cheers for the royal couple... hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray!

In the U.S., Victoria is currently running on PBS. For those watching or who have already watched the show (U.K. audience), what do/did you think of this latest Queen Victoria offering?

It has been reported that Prince William will be leaving East Anglian Air Ambulance to become a full-time working member of the Royal Family.

If the news is to be believed (without a formal acknowledgement), Princess Beatrice has split from long term boyfriend, Dave Clark. They had dated 10 years.

On another, happier note, today is her 28th birthday.
