If Frederick takes Maud to visit his parents at their home and William is there with George then there is a chance they could be playmates occasionally as they would both then be at KP - other than that I don't see them being all that close.
Unless Freddy & Sophie move back to London.

But they have to have something in common in order to be friends - and they don't. William and Catherine's close friends all stem from their time at their respective schools and St Andrew's. Nothing in common; different life styles; difference getting greater all the time.

So many people have some idealistic notion that all relatives as bosom buddies. Doesn't happen.

And in Europe there's a castle where all european royals live together wearing tiaras and crowns all the time (and Q.Elizabeth sits at the head of the dining table)

Congratulations to Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor and Prince and Princess Michael!

The name Maud is growing on me although I prefer it with an e on the end. I'm not really a fan of Daphne. Marina is one of my favourite names for a girl, it's very pretty (I guessed that Marina would be one of the baby's names). I also like Elizabeth (I'm guessing that Elizabeth is after the Queen Mother/HM). I wonder if we'll get a photo of baby Maud, I imagine that Hello will have something about her in a few weeks.

I found an article from the Telegraph about Lord and Lady Frederick's baby, which says that she weighed 7lbs at birth. The article also said that Prince and Princess Michael and Sophie's family have been informed of the news and were delighted about it:

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent's first grandchild is named 'Maud' - Telegraph

Exactly. And I strongly believe that the same goes for baby George.

Maud may not be such a great name, but Princess Martha Louise, herself named after her paternal grandmother,named one of her 3 daughters after her paternal great grandmother, I believe?

You are absolutely right. Lord Frederic and Lady Gabriella are the members of the extended family, who will maintain formal polite relationships with their relatives and may attend some events (weddings, christenings, funerals).

Princess Märtha Louise of Norway named her eldest daughter Maud Angelica after her great-grandmother, Queen Maud of Norway, daughter of King Edward VII of the United Kingdom.

What a pretty name! One of my grandmother's sisters, born around 1880, was named Maud. How nice to see it used today :)

I love the baby's name! Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina is a beautiful combination.

My great-grandmother's name was Maude, which is one reason why I like it.

Well that's very nice news

I never really thought about Americans being in line to the British throne. And being able to avoid London altogether and growing up in Beverly Hills and Malibu. Whew, Baby Maud has won the lottery of life!

Best wishes to all

I have recently read in a book on Will that he was at Eton same time as Freddie, who was a few years older. Freddie looked in on him from time to time to see how he was faring.

yes, but they are not friends. Relatives drop in, check how you're doing, send Christmas cards, might even remember your birthday - that doesn't make them friends.

Never seen a pic of these 2 in a social setting apart from royal do's

Charles and Diana made sure to keep their distance from the Michaels and their family while they both lived at KP, so I doubt any close childhood friendship existed. Diana even pinched Nanny Barnes from the Kents which is just not the done thing to do
