I have a question: if george would have been born later and the queen would have been in balmoral what would have it happened? And about the document to be signed?

I would imagine that if the Queen had been at Balmoral, this weekend would be the first time either she or the DoE met George. As it was, after George and family left the hospital, they spent one night at Nottingham Cottage at KP so that HM could stop in and meet her great grandson.

Only document I can think of that needed to be signed was the register of birth and William did that. I don't believe the Queen has to sign anything.

We've gotten the official photos. They weren't professional, and people may not have liked them, but that's what we got to see. We're not likely to get any more until the christening.

Before George was born the Queen had said that she was hoping the baby would be born before she went on vacation, so she still would have gone. Fortunately, her presence wasn't necessary in any way for George to be born.

If George had been born while HM was at Balmoral I suspect that nothing different would have really happened. She, like the DoE, would have had to wait to meet him, that's all.

I'm not sure what document you're referring to.

sorry, I was mistaken. I thought the birth document put on the easel had to be sign by the queen as well.
Thanks

I'm not 100% certain, but I think it was signed by the two attending physicians and the midwife.

I think you're right on that. I think there's a good sized picture of the birth announcement somewhere here but heck if I can find it. Perhaps after another cuppa coffee.

That is William's birth announcement. I think Osipi was looking for George's, but I could be mistaken.

HMQ didn't have to sign anything. She had to be informed of the birth before any announcement was to be made. There was an issue as to whether she would have been woken to be told - and the answer was that she wouldn't. So it didn't matter whether she was at BP or Balmoral.

the document on the stand was the signed document (by attending doctors) giving date and time of birth.

If you go to Google Images and type: Prince George's birth announcement Buckingham Palace Easel, there are several images of the announcement. Here's one:

I can read the names on William's birth announcement better than I can on George's. LOL

Before he was even born, Prince George had his own page on Wikipedia and His Royal Cuteness' fame has soared ever since. Amazing as it is that he's ranked #1, I do think it is carrying things a wee bit too far.

Prince George is already more powerful than his parents

Although I understood the immediate reasons for the new royal highnesses's names, I was hoping that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might choose names more historically appropriate to Cambridge itself: William's own name is a good example, as William the Conqueror was the largest landowner in the town.

But what about "Alan"? Count Alan Rufus of Brittany was the next largest landowner in Cambridge, the University of Cambridge coat-of-arms bears an Ermine Cross in recognition (wittingly or not) of Alan's role in promoting education, he had a much better pedigree than King William's (multiple descents from Charlemagne, membership of the ancient Sovereign House of Brittany, probable descent from Roman Emperors, and a claimed descent from Saint James the Greater). Alan was without peer in building the British economy (e.g. he built up the English ports, often at his own expense), he was an innovator in architecture, he worked tirelessly to mend diplomatic bridges between the Normans, English and Scots, his heirs' wealth enriched many royal houses of Europe and even helped fuel the Renaissance.

Moreover, the Royal family has countless lines of descent from Alan's family, e.g. from his brother Count Stephen's children and grandchildren.

On top of that, the Royal Stewarts descended in male line from Alan the Dapifer of the Bishop of Dol, an important town in the County of Penthievre in Brittany, governed by Alan Rufus's father Eozen, one-time Regent of Brittany. Eozen's elder brother Duke Alan III was a Guardian of the young Duke William of Normandy and Alan III's great-grandson Alan IV "Fergant" (the Strong) married King William's daughter Constance.

They didn't ignore Cambridge though. The last Duke of Cambridge (before William) was a Prince George. He was also Queen Mary's uncle.

An excellent observation! Moreover, Prince George of Hanover, Duke of Cambridge, was born in Cambridge House, Piccadilly (on 26 March 1819).

Still, perhaps the next son can be named Alan, Duke of Richmond? (That would bring a much-needed ray of sunshine to the North of England.)

"Duke of Boston" would also have a strong resonance: Alan Rufus built the port of Boston, Lincolnshire into the second port of England, and for the American alliance there are numerous historic connections between Boston in Massachusetts and Boston in Lincolnshire as well as with Cambridgeshire and the University of Cambridge, many of them through links to Alan's family.

Actually George Hanover was born in Cambridge House, Hanover. His father didn't come into possession of the Piccadilly residence until 1829, although it is him that the house's name comes from.

I'm not sure if it would be wise for a British prince to be "of" a major American city (even if there is also a British one), particularly one like Boston which is so well associated with the American Revolution, but that's just my thinking. Personally, I'd like to see a second son of William one day be the Duke of York, as it's the typically traditional title for the second son of the monarch, but that might not be available for use at the time.

Richmond is currently in use; the current duke is Charles Henry Gordon-Lennox.

I am hopeful that the British government actually passes legislation to allow the first born child inherit all titles so that York goes to Beatrice.

Of course in 30 years the second son, assuming a second son, could be about to marry and Andrew could also still be alive.

Andrew could also remarry and have a son - so it is possible that the title won't be available.
