Hello, and happy summer (now that it’s officially arrived) to those enjoying the season’s warmer temps! (I know it’s winter, not summer, for many of our friends around the world, but it sure is nice to see a little more sunshine in this corner of the globe.)
We have news about Prince Louis’s christening: it will be Monday, July 9th at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace.
And for Charlotte’s christening, it was also Alexander McQueen and Jane Taylor.
At this point, I guess I would put my money on the Duchess wearing McQueen again, and probably Jane Taylor as well. What do you think?
We also have results from our Trooping the Colour poll. With more than 7000 votes here are your top three choices.
The most popular look by a wide margin is the pink McQueen dress and Jane Taylor hat seen at last year’s event.
Taking second place was the Alexander McQueen coat worn for Charlotte’s christening accessorized with a Philip Treacy hat.
Thank you to everyone who voted, this one was really fun.
I don’t know about you, but it feels like a tidbit of happy news would be a wonderful thing. Fitting that description: the news that Zara and Mike Tindall have a new baby girl! Some of you have already heard this, I’m sure, but for those who have not, the baby was born on Monday, weighing in at 9 lbs., 3 ozs.
Below, the couple at Meghan and Harry’s wedding.
More from the Stroud News & Journal:
The new baby, who is 19th in line to the throne and the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s seventh great-grandchild, is a younger sister for four-year-old Mia Tindall.
The baby is also a second cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis
A name for the baby hasn’t yet been announced. It’s possible Mike Tindall will use Twitter again to let people know the name, as he did in 2014.
NOTE: Originally the post said the photo of Zara, Mike, Mia and Prince William was from this year. That was incorrect, it is from last year.
