The fact that no announcement was made is because, in my opinion, none was necessary.

Without any new Letters Patent - or the use of The Queen's Will or a Royal Warrant - the children of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's children will be styled as the children of a Duke until Charles becomes King when they will automatically become Prince/Princess or an announcement is then made that they will remain as they are - Lord/Lady with the eldest son as Earl of Dumbarton.

Edward's situation was different as he was asking for his children to be given lesser titles than they are entitled to under the 1917 LPs while Lord/Lady is the default position for Harry's children under those same LPs.

The relevant announcement I was talking about was the announcement about Harry's titles: Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton, Baron Kilkeel.

Because of that announcement this baby will be known as the Earl of Dumbarton. Had the queen announced his titles as Duke of Sussex, Earl of Wonderland, Baron Kilkeel, this baby would have been known as 'Earl of Wonderland' .

Só, if H&M want to keep the identities of the medical team private, they might have a problem if a note is posted to the CC.

It will be up to the Queen to decide what information to include in the CC. If she wants to put in the names of the medical team she will but she may also respect the wishes of the doctors and Harry and Meghan if they don't want that information made public.

Richard Palmer has explained his comment about the announcement being an absolute shambles.

Quote:
Yes, the palace was supposed to send out an email to inform the media that she had gone into labour but it didn’t send apparently. It’s not the first time they have screwed up these big announcements. So it came out in a chaotic way, a model of how not to do it. - https://twitter.com/RoyalReporter/st...32231168761861
Quote:
The palace email system broke, as it has on previous occasions when they have needed to inform a large number of journalists. So instead of informing everyone at once they found themselves inundated with journalists from all over the world calling to try to check. - https://twitter.com/RoyalReporter/st...05648375083008
So it wasn't that he was "whining" about the way they announced it; it's that the palace's I.T. failed, and so the announcement was an utter mess. I suppose his point is that the I.T. and Comms departments should have made sure their essential systems were in proper working order before starting on bells and whistles like I.G. accounts. IMO, he has a point.

It was lovely that Harry came out to announce the birth. It was such a personal touch and he looked so excited. While we all enjoyed seeing Kate and her babies outside the Lindo Wing, I can't help but think that a photocall two days after the birth is much more sensible. Posing for the press hours after birth is one "tradition" that needs to go in my opinion. Not that 40 years is enough for it to be called a tradition.

This is a sweet body language analysis of Harry's joyous reactions:

Is this just an old wives tale, or is there actually any medical basis for this belief? I'd love to know because I've heard this mentioned more than once.

I picked it up from an article about overdue pregnancies, and I don't recall it being presented as an old wive's tale (I usually scoff at those).

I have a feeling the announcement of the baby's name will be epic. And the "reveal" will be as
well.

I am SOO happy Meghan was able to have the birth she wanted (from all accounts) with the people most special to her near! So happy for a healthy mama and baby.

Harry's joy? Just amazing. I am seeing people who I never see comment on royal news or births really complimenting Harry for his awe and love for his wife. Just a truly special moment to share with us!

This whole thing was PERFECT. Having Harry come out to announce the birth and gender felt personal, but also gave us that royal moment. Meghan can now rest and we get close, intimate and clear shots of the whole family when she is a little more up on her feet.

I was a big fan of the Lindo Wing set up and not happy when we learned we wouldnt get it. But this approach is IMO perfect. Still momentous and royal, but also personal. Hopefully this sets a precedent for future births---no matter the position in the line of succession.
It's nice to see many people, even some royal reporters melting like mush and coming around to a sensible reaction to Meghan's and Harry's stated desires.

The whole Lindo Wing set-up was never ideal. Diana did not like it either time. She is known to have said how much her stitches were killing her after giving birth to William, and how hard it was for her to walk out of the hospital and smile. Prince Charles was carrying William at that time, likely because Diana wasn't feeling very stable. Or maybe she carried him and then handed him off to Charles. In any case, Diana later said that once the car pulled away from the hospital and was out of sight of the cameras, she broke down crying. If you don't have to subject yourself to that, why do so?

It was just that Princess Anne and the Duchess of Gloucester were the first royal women to give birth at a hospital, only days apart in November 1977. And seemingly a small, informal crowd had gathered back then as Princess Anne was leaving the hospital. But it was seemingly very casual, and Anne did not really pose, although she did smile toward the photographers. There's a shot of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester with their baby inside a vehicle before they pulled away.

Because Diana's first child was heir to the throne, the crowds were larger and numbers of people had spent nights outside the hospital. I don't think that's a very good scenario. There had been discussion of Diana giving birth at the palace, but I think she preferred the safer confines of a hospital.

I hope it will eventually be confirmed where Baby Sussex's birth took place. I wouldn't rely on reporting by the Daily Mail.

Y’all, Harry has his own heir. It seems just like yesterday that Meghan was wrapping up her last season on Suits. Now she’s married, a senior royal and a mother to the seventh in line to the British throne. This is just amazing.

^^ Yes, absolutely @Dman. It all happened swiftly, as if it was meant to be. I do believe this couple's connection is fated and truly blessed. As Harry said in their engagement interview: "All the stars were aligned when we met..."

Here are some mothers sharing their overdue experiences, and babys' genders. Some overdues are girls, but there are apparently many overdue boys.
https://community.babycentre.co.uk/p..._boy_or_a_girl

This article also suggests that boys are more often overdue, but I'm still hoping to find out if there's a medical reason why.

I think these two entirely separate issues. The engagement announcement typically do not include other family members. In fact, the actually announcement came from Prince Charles’ office as they normally do. Baby announcements don’t really have as much tradition on who to include and not. And it came from the Sussexes’ office. While the engagement announcement didn’t mention Diana’s family, Harry and Meghan did talk about them in the interview.

Thomas Markle was mentioned in the KP’s statement on behalf of Meghan’s parents because he was informed 18 months ago. We all know why he wasn’t today.

I saw something funny today about this, but I wasn’t sure about posting it. I mean no ill will, so I apologize to my fellow U.K. posters if they are upset by it.

One of the FT journalists made a joke on twitter that since the referendum, we’ve found out Meghan and Harry are dating, engaged, married, pregnant, and now parents. He mused how old this child will be when Brexit finally happens. Or perhaps a better question is old his grandchild will be.

I don't know if an analysis of Baby Sussex's birth chart was posted yet. I found this one:

https://www.wellandgood.com/good-adv...x-birth-chart/

“The royal baby was born just before sunrise and so he is a double Taurus, Sun and Rising Sign—aka Ascendant. Like all ‘double’ Rising Signs he will be a case of ‘what you see is what you get.' ... he will grow up to be both strong and persevering—great traits for a potential leader—but will do this in ways that are inventive and unusual. We say this because the planet Uranus, which in astrology is associated with revolutionary inventions and free thinking, was just above the horizon and so this energy colors his double Taurus way of presenting himself to the world...

"... he will be a leader in whatever he chooses to do and, because of his Moon being in the sign of Gemini and in the First House of his birth horoscope chart, he will be known as one of the greatest intellects and orators ever to be a part of the Royal Family...

"... astrologists expect him to be outgoing like his dad. His Jupiter is in the sign of Sagittarius, the most fortunate position for the planet known as The Bringer of Good Fortune and it is in the Eight House of his chart, the house of power and the stewardship of other people’s resources..."

I thought the Palace didn’t announce things in the middle of the night? That they waited until morning.

It seems you misunderstood my message. I was not in anyway suggesting that Harry's aunts and uncles should have been included in the engagement announcement. I am saying that including someone in the engagement announcement and NOT including that same person in the birth announcement (while including others such as his aunts and uncle but also his brother and sister-in-law) is significant. And yes, we know why, but that doesn't make it less significant.
