I think Lady Gabriella will be a godmother.

Frederick Windsor shares how they chose the name Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina:

"We liked the idea of an old-fashioned English name and there are a couple of Princess Mauds in my father's family from a hundred years ago – one was the youngest daughter of Edward VII who ended up being Queen of Norway, and another a grand-daughter of Edward VII by his daughter Princess Louise.

It's also a beautiful, elegant name and it was always our first choice. Elizabeth is a tribute to the Queen, Daphne is Sophie's grandmother, who she was very close to and Marina is my paternal grandmother."

Freddie will always look a little, off, to me.

A beautiful family picture and the baby looks adorable. Prince Michael always make sure he gives off that great old Windsor stare.

Princess of Kent touching her daughter-in-law back- it's so nice and protective gesture.

Plus the fact that Prince Michael and Freddie are both holding the chair helps to make it look like this is a close, loving, and protective family, although in Prince Michael's case there's an element to it that suggests that he's standing that way as much for the symbolism of it as to support himself.

Little baby Maud is so adorable.
I'm so delighted to see the happy family!

A very nice picture!
Too bad Maud probably won't be a playmate for George, but if Freddie and Sophie live in L.A., they will seldom see each other.

I too noticed the the startling "Windsor" looks - although it's really from the Danish grandmother - as it appeared in both George V and Tsar Nicholas II.

Sophie is a beautiful mom, Maude looks like a cute little baby. But egads, that open collar and chain. It sent me back to 1983 and Staying Alive.

Nice photo!

The photos are lovely, indeed. Prince and Princess Michael must be happy to become grandparents.

Frederick, Sophie, and little Maud look great. But it's strange to me to see Prince and Princess Michael in such casual clothes. (open shirt and everything, really?) They are such an elegant couple and I love the way they look in their more formal attire. Oh well, it's nice to see the happy family.

And I love Frederick's explanation of Maud's names. Lovely and meaningful.

It's an informal picture, they look like happy grandparents.

Baby Maud looks adorable, that photo of her snuggling up to Sophie is so cute.

I have a feeling that they won't get to see each other often, but it would be nice if Maud could be a playmate for Prince George. I have that edition of Hello, and on the cover, there's a quote (which I assume is from one of the family) which says "it's lovely that Maud and Prince George are so close in age", so perhaps they will be playmates.

One thing I can imagine is that in about 13-14 years when it all starts with George being the heart throb of the word, Maud will have to fight the girls off with a big stick with them wanting introductions to George. OK.. way way far ahead and probably far fetched but I'm sure the both of them will grow up knowing each other and that they're related.

I love the picture! Prince Michael reminds me a bit of Sean Connery. No matter how much older he gets, he's got the flair and good looks.

I agree with you, I also think they'll see each other on the balcony at Trooping the Colour in the future.

Lady Frederick is a stunningly gorgeous woman, and her baby girl is just beautiful.

What a perfect family photo of the the Kents...I love it!

I hope they grow up as at least close acquaintances but almost surely Zara's child and George will be really close esp. if it's a boy.
