I ran across this article that said Kate had received the Family Order.  I can't imagine her not wearing it if it was indeed presented to her.   Can anyone confirm?

I tend to agree with Chris.  And isn't that the traditional way?

But that's been less often these days.  It seems to me that Prince Harry is maturing quite nicely.  His trek across the Antarctic with the Walking With the Wounded and his involvement with the Invictus Games are just a couple of examples.  I've come to admire his work with and for wounded soldiers, his sincerity and passion come through in spades.  And I love seeing him with children...he's a natural.  And he's still having fun.

I understand what you're saying; however, I love the idea of Zara naming her daughter Poppy. It's truly lovely, and it would suit Zara's personality. I hope she does.  :)

It does sound like a name Zara would choose!  I rather like the sound of Poppy Tindall, it sounds old-fashioned and, at the same time very modern and cool. :)

Ducky might have destroyed hers.

Is this an opinion or do you have a factual reference for this statement?

I highly doubt the writings of an 8 year old child would be a true representation of EL and VM's capabilities as parents. 

I agree with Ann and edubs31.  The most we'd likely get from an 8 year old's diary would be a wish list for Santa and what the child had for dessert!  ;D

Amen, Larry.

"Wallis Simpson, the Secret Letters" will air on PBS December 3, 2013.

I thought he looked a bit more like Kate, also.  But I'm like you RoyalWatcher, he's a happy blend of them of them both.  A truly beautiful baby!  I loved the way he seemed to study his Great Grandmama!

Thank you Svetabel and Ann. 

I assume that her children were raised in the Anglican faith. Would that be correct?

Did Marie convert from the Russian Orthodox religion when she married Alfred?

This is fascinating!  Thank you so much for posting the link!

Congratulations to William and Catherine!  I just love watching these two.  They are just so delightfully normal.  Lovely moment in front of hospital today.....proud, beaming parents so obviously in love with their baby boy, and each other.   :)
