I'm aware that the title might not be available, in fact I believe I said as much in my post (although you did go further into the specifics of why it may not).

Personally, I don't think it's likely that Andrew will remarry and have more children, but I guess Andrew does like to surprise us all. As for parliament changing the way titles are inherited.. I can't see a government touching that one either. While the system is sexist, I doubt altering the system of hereditary peerages in a manner that will continue the system is high on the list of any politician's agenda. I think Bea's best bet of becoming Duchess of York is if she's created such on the passing of her father, but given how the Yorks don't really get recognized for what they do now I can't see either of them being granted a peerage in the future, even if such a grant was just to correct the sexism within their father's peerage.

And of course Andrew may very well still be alive in 30 years - one can hope - but the BRF has shown that it has no problem with giving individuals lesser titles on their marriage with the promise of a greater one at a later date. This future son could go the route of Edward, if they so wished.

If George had been a girl the ball would have started rolling for equal primogeniture among the peerages quickly enough as some older daughters are rightly unhappy at being passed over. But the situation is considered moot point now I guess.

Question for the CoE posters out there, 1 1/2 hours for a christening is that normal? They have to be doing a whole service. How long is the naming portion?

An 1.5 hour christening service is extremely long. The Prayer Book service takes about 30 minutes and when done in a normal service takes about 10 minutes.

An additional thought is that they are having multiple hymns, a full sermon and even including communion/morning prayer service (but even then 1.5 hours is long).

Maybe they mean that the family will be there that long, perhaps to accommodate a photographer? That's my best guess. Or the whole time start to finish is bogus?

Hopefully the 1 1/2 hrs is naming, pictures and lunch afterwards. Otherwise, it will be pretty hard to keep George from bawling his head off if he has to go thru 90 minutes from hymns and sermons.

Zoetropo, Alan is a great historical name, and if Cambridges have a second son, that would be a good one. Already starting the name-thread. I like the Brittany form of Alan, Alain. HGD Stephanie of Lux has a brother Alain, in fact most of her siblings have names which i associate with Brittany, although I think Iluvbertie corrected me on one of those.
Alan Rufus is a distinguished sounding name, which you have brought up, Zoetropo.

Rufus sounds like a dog's name - sorry (I did have a dog called Rufus as a kid by the way).

I like Rufus more as a nickname than as a given name.

Somehow, I can't see this couple choosing names that are too out there for the first name. They seem to have gone more with names that reflect more recent family history than with more archaic ones, so I think for future children we can expect the same.

Mr Rigg continued: "I was not expecting a reply and were thrilled to receive the letter and photo of the young family.

I'll bet Guy Pelly wishes he had thought of that first.

Ruf! Ruf! Ruf ruf!

Just think, in years to come little Georgie can run around at family gathering with little Rufus, little Maudie, and whatever Zara names her kid; perhaps Zinc or some nice combination of both parents' names.

I have a question: Is there in UK a law which oblige kids to be vaccinated? If so, at what age should George have his first vaccine?

Hmm, I have not heard of a law that says you have to get your kids vaccinated, but I'd be really surprised if they didn't vaccinate George.

Especially if he's got red hair.

I hope there isn't a Duke of Boston coming along; for sure they'd call the poor child "Stumpy."

MOS DIARY: Duchess of Cambridge breaks tradition to hire a young foreign nanny | Mail Online
It seems that they found a young nanny for George. Jesse Webb is feeling "reluctant" to go Down Under, Can't blame her! I'm sure she has been helpful but sooner or later a new one was needed! I've nerver understand why they hired a retired woman (Ok, they trusted her but it's her right to retire IMO)

The nanny is definitely older than 22. I daresay in early 40s so her age is mature enough to have experience. The pic was taken last week though
