Miracle birth for Windsors
The miracle royal baby has arrived. Lord Nicholas Windsor’s wife, Lady Paola
, who will be 45 in August, has given birth to a third son
, a brother for Albert, six, and four-year-old Leopold.
When I broke the news of her pregnancy last month, one of their Catholic friends told me: ‘It’s a miracle Paola is having a child at her age so soon after the ceremony of the four Popes.’ This was a reference to the sainthood bestowed on Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II in the presence of Pope Francis and his predecessor Pope Benedict.
Lord Nicholas, 43, and his sons are not in line to the throne because they are Catholics. He converted in 2001, like his mother the Duchess of Kent before him.
He wed Paola Doimi de Lupis de Frankopan, who is half-Swedish and half-Croatian, in 2006, becoming the first member of the Royal Family to marry in the Vatican.
