This is not how to properly secure a newborn into a car seat. I know they generally travel with police escort but this picture scares me and I've not heard anybody mention it yet. Let's just hope it's because they wanted to get out of there quickly. Further, you are supposed to put the carry handle down once the seat is attached to the base in the vehicle. The next day when they left KP, the handle was straight up again. I'm just saying that I hope they take more care than this in their day to day lives.
Actually the brand that they got instruction say to leave the handle straight. http://www.britax.co.uk/media/259112...r_standard.pdf

My niece and her hubby very quickly honed that instinct after little Parker arrived last year. Twice he managed to nail my sister/Grandma due to her thinking Lisa needed help w/him and instead, she needed a change of clothes..LOL!!

I really like the names they picked out and sound nice together. I can't wait for those first official pictures either.

May God Bless little Prince George w/a long and happy life filled w/much joy and love!! :) :)

A friend of mine said that one of the best post-birth moments in the hospital was when a nurse she didn't like had a "gotcha" while changing her son. It was like the baby, then not even 2 days old, had an instinct for rude people.

I always have a spare nappy at work when I am changing newborn baby boys as I have been "christened" several times. As soon as the cold air hits them, BOOM!

Hahah, yes, yes, we always had a nappy on top of our naked son we were changing him. Learned it the hard way

Not a big fan of the name George. I'd rather Alexander as a 1st name.
Btw I think it means if it was girl she would be Alexandra

I know they said they didn't ask the sex of the baby but my guess is they knew it was going to be a boy and just didn't want to tell the media. So I don't think they'd picked out any girl names and she didn't have a pink dress at the hospital to wear out to meet the media. I also think they'd had the names picked out earlier but just didn't release them to the media until a few days after the birth.

I didn't know we were living in the muddle ages...Will at least Catherine wont have to worry about getting her head chop off now.
It wouldn't have made any difference if she'd had a girl - they changed the rules that said the boy would have precedence over the girl. Long gone are the days where they thought the female determined the sex of the baby and a woman could be beheaded for failing to produce a male heir. And Kate said that William had said he'd wanted a girl and she'd wanted a boy. Camilla would be closer to Anne Boleyn than Kate would be if they're trying to compare her to them - Catherine of Aragon was the queen who was rejected by the King but popular with the people and Anne was the controversial mistress who married Henry (like the Diana/Camilla dynamic). Kate and William were only married to each other so I'm missing the link between Kate and either Catherine of Aragon or Anne Boleyn.

It's about producing a son nothing more. Anne and Catherine couldn't do it. It's just the media linking current events to historical events.

They are but kind of in a weird way, as if this is the first first born son born to the family since prior to Henry. Or as if Henry's problems were as simple as he preferred to have a son instead of a daughter and was a pig about it. Neither of which is true.

Actually Henry VIII couldn't. It had nothing to do with Anne or Katharine of Aragon. It's not just the retro sexism that made the comment that Catherine was great for producing a boy so stupid- it was also the fundamental misunderstanding of basic biology.

Actually half of Catherine of Aragon's births were sons, and 2/3 of Anne's were sons. The problem wasn't that they couldn't produce sons, it was that the sons didn't survive.

Henry VIII had 11 children. 6 of them were (believed to be) sons, 5 were (believed to be) daughters. One of his daughters by Catherine was a miscarriage, the other stillborn, while one of his sons by Anne was a miscarriage. He also had one unnamed son by Catherine who died within days, and two sons - both named Henry - who died by 2 months. There was a son by Anne, also named Henry, who died soon after birth (if he wasn't stillborn).

This seems to indicate that in all actuality Henry and his brides had no problems conceiving sons, but at some point in fetal development or after birth the sons died. Not necessarily his fault.

Not quite true - the UK has passed the legislation but most of the other realms haven't done so so it hasn't taken effect yet.

Currently the situation is still male primogeniture in the UK and it will remain that way until all 16 realms have passed the legislation in their own ways as required and that is now not necessary so could be sometime before it actually happens.

How do you know she didn't have a pink dress there as well as the blue?
