When you were a little prince or princess…

A big news story is the announcement that the royal couple is expecting their first child. The mad speculation has already begun. What will they name the child? Will it be a boy or a girl? Who will it look like? What does the Queen think? Swirling around this yet unborn being are impossible high hopes for a child that may one day lay claim to the throne.

But on the day you were born people were excited too. You were welcomed into the world by doctors, nurses and midwives you likely don’t remember. They marveled at you a little miracle. People asked about your name, and your weight, the news of your birth was passed around. You were a little bundle of potential and you brought joy to every one who held you. You were a little prince or princess, too.
