A busy day for royalty

These days you just pop into hospital to deliver a baby and then go home moments later. The Duchess of Cambridge so that today at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

Moments later appearing with a daughter, as yet unnamed.

Meanwhile, I had lunch with a friend at the Café Royal in Regent Street, recently refurbished. Many Napoleonic influences in the foyer.



 and the restyled restaurant was superb. We were treated like royalty, especially because my friend is doing an article about the restaurant for his newsletter.


Only one small purchase on the way home.



  1. The lunch with Trevor sounds magnificent and a fitting end to your stay in London. Will you hear the 21 gun salute for the princess before you leave for Jerusalem? Nice service this morning, with a smaller congregation than usual – I wonder why?

    The children’s service was well attended in St George’s chapel. Your verger was snapping away and no doubt the photos will reach you.

  2. Elsbeth

    I think it would be a great idea to go home after 24 hours, not so in my time, however I’m very happy indeed that it’s a girl as yet unnamed. The second time around is easier. One of my hero’s is Wellington – he would be kind enough to see the beautiful surroundings and know that they were in London where they speak the Queen’s lingo.
