He is in touch with his mother's sisters and cousins. They were invited to his wedding, one of his mother's sisters was at one of his graduations. I think that qualifies as being a factor in his life.

As for godparents - announced at the time of the Christening which can be anytime from about two months onwards going on past experiences.

As the Queen is heading to Balmoral for the next two months I would say baptism in October/November - 14th/20th are good dates (Charles' birthday, Queen's wedding day - Anne's first wedding day as well was the 14th) and of course 15th is Peter's birthday.
Could name him something Scottish like Robert, and break tradition having his baptism in Scotland.

William-Born June 21, baptized August 4th baptized on queen mum's bday, at Buckingham palace
Harry- born September 15, baptized December 21
Bea-August 8 and not christened until December 20
Eug- even longer, Born March 23 and christened December 23
Louise- born November 8 christened the following April 23
James- born December christened in april
Peter-November 15, christened pretty quickly in December 22
Zara-not sure

Locations:
Buckingham palace: William, Peter
Saint James: Bea
Sandringham: Eugenie
Windsor: Harry, James and Louise

Interesting enough, while the other three were baptized like Will and Peter in the music room, of the queen's kids, only Edward was not. He was baptized like both of his children, at Windsor.

O.k. Well Im so happy for them. A little Prince is wonderful. Maybe a little off topic but, what will the heraldry look like now? Cant wait to see that one. When will a new one be created?

I've been with my cousin all day. We've been celebrating. So very happy for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and can't wait to see them walk out of the hospital tomorrow with their son.

I love my Dad, as sometimes he just has the best ideas, like tonight. Mom asked me if I was going to send a card to them, as I had done after the Wedding, and I told her I'm planning on it. Many here don't know, but for close to 20 yrs now (Eeeekkk!! Hard to believe it!!) I've 1st crocheted and now that I have learned how to knit over the years, have also added knitted items to the sizeable (Think Garbage Bags full just due to location and other factors) donations of clothing, blankets, buntings and, sadly, clothing used for burial of the little Angels who do not make it, to my local Neo Natal ICU. Mom thought I should send along the Full Term sweater and booties set I literally just finished crocheting this past weekend, as it was the first time for this pattern to be made. I put a stop to that idea, as how many other hand made sets like that will be sent as a gift for the little HRH?

That's when Dad asks, "You've tot a bunch of stuff ready to go over, right?" Which w/fhe exception of one blanket that needs the border of it finished since this time last year thanks to that particular yarn never being in stock, '*grinds teeth in frustration*, I do have yet another pretty big bag of things to be sent over to Sudbury. After hearing that, Dad suggested,"Well then...Just do a note for the nurses explaining this time, you're donating in the name of the little Prince in order to mark the lil guy's arrival and then do a letter to tuck into the card letting William and Kate know about it."

As I said, there really are times when he has the best ideas. I love it and it really is perfect.and exactly what the Cambridges suggested, do something for charity to mark the safe and healthy birth of not only a Prince of Cambridge, not only a Prince of the UK, but also a Prince of Canada. Anyway, i just wanted to share my Dad's suggestion. Considering he's not at all well and has Early On Set Dementia that is really showing it's effects the last few months....

Yeah. :(. It hasn't won yet though, so yay for Dad having one of his best days in awhile today and enjoy it all w/Om and me!!

You know...This evening I seem to wondering how Jacthina Saldana's Family is doing and coping. Yes, of course they knew today was coming obviously, but it's still got to be bittersweet.

Sigh..what a couple of days for us Royal fans, huh? First all of the events in Belgium w/King Albert II abdicating and King Philippe's Instillation as Monarch. Then the safe and healthy birth of little Prince Cambridge and a healthy Mum at the end of it all...

It does not get much better than this Everyone. What a Historic and Special couple of days these have been.

And on that note, there's a bed over in the next room that's got my name on it and also calling my name, so I think I need to literally go and crash into it. It's been fun sharing this special day w/all of you!! Talk to you sometime tomorrow when it sounds like we'll very well be talking about a certain picture taken at the door of The Lindo Wing.

He probably won't have a coat of arms until he's 18.

But they are his family, as much as the BRF is. His uncle Charles aside, I believe his aunts on the Spencer side have remained in his life at least somewhat. Hopefully they haven't been overlooked on this happy occasion.
It is sad that people often try to ignore the existence of Spencer relatives of William and Harry.
But I really doubt this baby will feel any connection with his grand-mothers family. He will most likely consider Camilla as his grandmother.

He is now bald and has blue eyes.
Will we even see his photos (I mean face) before the christening?

I think doing that was the best thing William and Kate could have done.

Has that been released? Not all babies are bald and blue eyed (although most are blue eyed).

When the leave hospital he'll be all wrapped up but if the camera's are clever they'll get a shot. There's no guarantee he's bald or has blue eyes.

When Catherine is allowed, nothing has been announced. When my sister gave birth the earliest she could leave was 24 hours after the baby was born. With Catherine, if it's safe to do so, she may leave this morning.

Did we see Williams face? No. I doubt parents and security will allow to photo a face.
