What’s Trending Wednesday: Royal Birth

Prince William and Kate Middleton gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Monday.

For What’s Trending Wednesday, we’re taking a closer look into the royal birth.

First things first…

The question we’re all dying to know, what will the new baby’s name be?

  • Judging by the duke and duchess’ previously named children and royal traditions, royal watchers say the new prince’s name could be Arthur, James, Fredrick, Thomas or Alfred.
  • For Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the name announcement also came two days after the birth.

And of course we all marveled at how well the duchess looked just hours after giving birth.

She stepped out on the front steps on the hospital wearing a red dress, which closely mirrors the red dress Princess Diana wore when she left the hospital after giving birth to Prince Harry.

So whose next to rule?

  • The new prince of Cambridge is 5th in line to the throne.
  • That means the Prince of Wales, his father Prince William, his brother Prince George and even his sister Princess Charlotte will all likely rule before he will.
  • His uncle, Prince Harry has spent most of his life being third in line to the throne, but has found himself being bumped down to sixth in line.
