I know what MRSJ is getting at. If Zara did sell her wedding pics, for example, she could justify it by presenting them as pics of her as a sports personality. What I mean is, even though most people would want to see them because she's Royal at least she would have the fig leaf of saying that her and Mike were doing it as there is an interest in them as sporting stars, many of whom have done the same kind of deals. In Peter's case neither he or Autumn are public figures so the wedding photos were sold purley on the strength of his Royal connections. It is hypocritical then to play the private citizen card and the Royal card at different times to suit themselves.

Actually its not.

Considering all the criticism and negative press that they received for selling their wedding photos, perhaps that they decided that it wasn't worth going thru all that.

Or perhaps they recognized that there is a BIG difference on selling pictures of your wedding than selling pictures of your infant daughter. And that Peter has had a somewhat public life that at present time, he doesn't want for his daughter. I am sure you will see Savannah when she gets older at the Gatcome Trials.

If one doesn't understand that, than well I am speechless.

I think though that they realised they made a mistake in selling their wedding to Hello and aren't going to repeat that mistake. The Queen wasn't happy with the decision about the wedding and would have made that point clear to her grandson. I don't think we are going to see a repeat amongst the Queen's children and grandchildren for the very reason that Peter was criticised for doing it and his grandmother disapproved.

I don't mean that I think they should release pics of their daughter I am talking about them in a more general way.

When I look back at photos of Prince William and Harry the first picture seen was as they were trying to leave the hospital.

With Prince Edward's kids I think it was christening photos in a glossy magazine, probably Hello? don't know if they were paid or not, but his income is probably higher than Peter Phillips.

As for the name Savannah it is not too bad. A little soap opera, but does make me think of Savannah Georgia. Watch "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' for some nice shots of the city.

I do like unusual names as long as they don't torture the kid. I haven't been able to find her whole name listed unless they are not decided on middle names until the christening?

Edward and Sophie allowed photographs as they left the hospital with both of their children and also released photos from each christening (I believe Prince Andrew was photographer there), as you mention. I think it is a nice courtesy to do so, and don't really understand why Peter and Autumn didn't as they left the hospital, unless of course there were no photographers waiting to take said pictures. So we wait...

When Viscount Severn was christened, there was one picture in Hello! and several released when James and his mum came out of hospital.

I never understand why people want to see a photo of a bundle in someone's arms as they leave hospital - you can't really see anything.

I remember seeing Diana with William - big deal - a bundle in her arms.

My thoughts as well... I'd rather wait some years to see them well... But everyone have their desires... I might have a craving for pictures no-one else would want to see... So I respect every position

Hi Guys! Thanks, I don't remember the leaving the hospital photos for Prince Edward's kids, I will have to do a search and look, but ya, it is hard to see the baby usually in those photos. If I'm remembering right one of the royal women leaving the hospital may have slipped, perhaps Fergie? Not sure, but it makes me nervous when I see them trying to walk, and cameras flashing, etc.

I really like that Prince Andrew continues to take photos for his family. I think it's nice. I think I still have a copy somewhere of his photo book that was published!

If I recall, Fergie didn't slip while leaving the hospital but while pregnant with Beatrice or Eugenie outside of Anabels. Either way, its a dicey thing to walk around with a newborn when you have tons of flashes in front of you.

My best guess is that it will be Easter when we see a picture of Savannah. A majority of members will most likely spend Easter with the Queen, and they will christen the baby at that time. I think something similiar occured with Margarita.

It sounds like a good plan with the wedding only a week later.

The name hasn't been confirmed yet, has it? On the official website she still doesn't appear in the line of succession. Hasn't it been too long, I assume there's a time limit to register a child in UK. Does anyone know how long is it?

I don't see who's going to confirm the name. She's called Savannah Phillips. The royal website might not have updated the website yet. But she's 12th in line for the throne.

I know she's 12th to th throne no matter what the royal site says. When her birth was announced it was also stated that the name (the full name I assume) would be announced in due time. From what I understand the name was accidentally leaked in a prayer at church but not officially confirmed.

Well perhaps the BRF have decided, that seeing as everyone important knows and the public has found out someway, they will leave the announcements until the christening date is revealed (if it is at all).

The child has to be registered within 42 days of the birth. That time period hasn't yet passed.

Registering and naming your baby : Directgov - Government, citizens and rights
Your baby must be registered in the district where the birth took place within 42 days of the birth in England and Wales. This can often be done at the hospital before the mother goes home, or at your local register office.

The baby was born on the 30th December so the registration has to take place no later than 11th February.

Fergie did slip leaving the hospital after the birth of one of her daughters. If I remember right, she was not carrying the baby at the time and had been walking around to the street side of the car and decided to go over to where some wellwishers were on the other side of the street and she slipped but managed to catch herself.

You are correct, sproketti. Sarah did slip, but thankfully, she wasn't carrying Eugenie, to whom she had just given birth. Sarah looked lovely in a pink satin jacket, and she was Much thinner than she was after the birth of Beatrice.

.

She slipped after coming out of the hospital after Beatrice's birth. Andrew was carrying Beatrice and Sarah, wearing a dark blue dress with a little white repeating pattern, which she'd worn when she was pregnant, and Sarah went over to some wellwishers and slipped.
