Yes, I know the wedding comes before the baby, but in this case, let’s talk about those cute little cherub cheeks and all that fabulous potential and weighty expectations that are placed on these swaddled, bundles of joy. Okay or as Mini puts it, these swaddled bundles of “you are never going to sleep again.”
Prince William, son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana
William stands out for me because I remember all the anticipation surrounding his birth. We’d watched his parents get married the year before and had been glued to the television set. Diana remains popular to this day and when William married it amazed me to see that young man who I still occasionally think of as that baby taking that next step into adulthood.
Princess Beatrice, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York
Sarah Ferguson made waves when she married Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II. She was nothing like Diana, and seemed a lot brassier and bolder. We Americans loved her, but never more so than with the birth of their daughter. Considering that Diana had two sons, it seemed time to add more princesses to the mix and Beatrice is a redhead–that’s just awesome.
Prince George, son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Or as his parents are better known, Prince William and Princess Catherine. You’d have to have been living under a rock during the royal baby watch last year to miss this one, but young George has a lot to live up to with that name.
