The New Royal Baby
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left hospital last night with their brand new baby boy. The small family emerged from St Mary's Hospital in Paddington one day after the birth.
The boy who would be king will be introduced to his great grandmother today; the queen is currently visiting the third in line for the throne at Kensington Palace.
To the crowd of well-wishers gathered outside the hospital yesterday, Prince William said that his son had his wife's looks and a great pair of lungs. The baby was named Prince George Alexander Louis today 24 July 2013 at 19:40.
Sixty years she reigned
Still twinkles like diamond
London 2012, a date for the calendar this summer.
The Olympic torch begins its 70 days journey, starting at Lands’ end tomorrow May 19, to finish at the Olympic stadium on the 27th of July.
The touch will signal the beginning of the 30th Olympic game.
The fun continues, as communities all over the country prepare for the real celebration, the Queen Elizabeth ll Diamond Jubilee.
Elizabeth came to the throne on the 6th of February 1952, and her coronation took place on the 2nd of June 1953. This diamond jubilee marks 60 years on the throne.
Elizabeth ll is the second monarch to reach this landmark, second only to Queen Victoria, who came to the throne at the age of 18 years and reigned for 63 years, ruling from 1837-1901.
The Queen remains a sterling example and is loved more now than ever before. She shows no sign of slowing down, at the grand age of 86 and continues to carry out her duties with a smile that twinkles like a diamond.
This haiku is my small tribute to a great Monarch.
