Does the two year old Harry actually hang well out of a window?

(That's what I heard William did to him when they were young)

1) Wills was giving Harry an early taste of rappelling
2) or he was displaying some rather disturbing Wacko Jacko symptoms....

Either way, if this is true, then Prince William has super powers!
Let's see, little Wills could flush shoes down a toilet, dangle a two year old from a window (he must have been four, damn he was a strong kid!)

You could always do your own research by checking Wikipedia or doing a Google search. To make it easier, here's the Wiki link to the Royal Family.

I read in A SPIRIT UNDAUNTED that the Minister had to be in residence at the time, but not actually witness the birth.

Apparently, this requirement was a constutional convention only, and there was no statute law involved.

Age records broken by the British Royal Family

On 18 April the Duke of Edinburgh has become the longest serving royal consort.

Are there more age records broken by BRF?

Who Is Allowed to Call HM "Lilibet"?

Only family? Certain family members only? Friends? Presumably Prince Philip and, when they were alive, Princess Margaret and her parents.

But would everyone else have to call her Ma'am? Even her nearest and dearest friends?

It must be sad not being able to have people close to you call you by your charming childhood name...

Her family most certainly.
Her closest friends possible, but maybe Elizabeth or Lizzie.
Lillibet is her childhood name, she may not like to hear it as her father often called her it.

I thing only subjcts/servants call her ma'am.

She signed The Queen Mum's 100th birthday card "Lilibet," didn't she? So I'd assume her mother continued to call her by that name into adulthood.

I remember reading somewhere that Diana as a girl reffered to the Queen as Auntie Lillibet, being her friend's (andrew) mother. Just as I, having being born and bred in the UK called my friends parents as aunt so and so, uncle such and such. All senior members of the family, her uncles and aunts cousin's and so forth probably call her Lillibet, the younger generation, ie her cousins children and grandchildren are probably more formal. The exception being the Linelys and chattos, probably cal her aunt Lillibet as their parents did.

I think I remember watching a documentary in which one of the Danish Royals - Queen Margrethe or Princess Benedikte - spoke from her as Lillibet.
I'm not absolutely sure who it was, but it was someone from the family. It would be imaginable to me that some of her distant relatives speak of her as "cousin Lillibet" sometimes.
