What a majestic lunch I had today! While dining on an all-American farm-stand salad, I turned on the television, and found myself in England, where the world was awaiting the first viewing of the new future king of England. I couldn’t believe my excellent choice of lunch hours. Suddenly, from the doors of St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington appeared the happy mom and dad with their brand new baby boy. I almost started crying, and I’m not even related.
It was like watching a fairy tale coming to life. I felt like I had been invited (with the rest of the world) to a Sip-and-See for the new monarch.
Now I am back to work, totally re-inspired, as we finish a new baby book collection to be introduced in January for all the other baby princes and princesses of the world.
(Here is my favorite link by the BBC to the viewing, because the camera is so close to those tiny new fingers stretching out to touch his new kingdom.)
I love how Kate, like every new mom, is quite reluctant to hand the baby over – making sure William has a good hold. :)
