Born to Rule


Sunday into Monday night I had a dream that the Duchess of Cambridge went into labor and gave birth to a baby girl. (I was wrong, apparently)

I awoke Monday morning, ready for a day spent at the Levo League offices to a text message from my Big saying "ROYAL BABY, ROYAL BABY, ROYAL BABY!"

I fully believe that I am psychic, this proves it! How did I have a dream that the Duchess was having her baby at the the very moments that Kate Middleton was going into labor? That to me is very strange.

But the day was made and I was in an exceptionally amazing mood because the heir to throne was on it's way!

From the title of this blog, Royally Pink, you could assume that I have a tiny bit obsession with the Royal Family and all things British. I simply adore England: the rich history, the archiecture, the accents, and the lovely Royal Family.

I blame Lindsay Lohan in 'The Parent Trap' and my mother and aunt for deeply loving Princess Diana. I grew up knowing exactly who Prince William and Prince Harry were. When Kate Middleton entered the picture, I watched her and Prince William's relationship blossom. 

In November 2010 when the couple announced their engagement, it was all I thought about and talked about till April 20th, 2011 when Kate Middleton, common girl, became the Duchess of Cambridge, the next Queen of England.



The story is magical and I am completely intrigued by it all. Katherine Elizabeth Middleton was born a common girl, like me and like you, now she has this entire life that is so UNCOMMON, no one will ever know what it's like to be her.

I have watched over the past two years, the Duke and Duchess and followed their every move. I loved seeing them smile at each other in public, the look of love so apparent in their eyes. I, like every other woman of the world, pay close attention to what the Duchess is wearing. 

Kate Middleton is the epitome of class but that's a whole different story. This post is about the Royal bundle of joy, His Royal Highness Prince of Cambridge!

I was sitting in the Levo offices when I saw the first tweet exclaiming "IT'S A BOY!" And there we had it, the future king, the heir to the throne, he had finally arrived.

The thought of Kate, William, and their little prince warmed my heart, brought a tear to my eye and a smile to my face. I was so happy, thinking of their precious, perfect family. What a joy!

Now, as I type this post, I am watching CNN's special "Will and Kate Plus One", cataloguing the lives of Will and Kate, both separate and together and it's amazing how life brings people together. They are simply perfect.

I think of how my mother and aunt watched William and Harry be brought into this world, they watched Princess Diana's pregnancies, watched their birth announcements, and saw all of the milestones in the Princes' lives. 

Now, I think about how incredible it is going to be for me to watch the Prince of Cambridge grow up. I will have been there from the start, just like the rest of the world. The third generation of the monarchy, right here, in present time and I'm here to watch it all.

Everyone pokes fun and doesn't understand why it is such a big deal about this birth; I'm American, why should I care about what's going on across the Atlantic? 

Well, to not care, in my opinion is ignorant. England and the monarchy is some of the oldest, richest history the world has, this is the future King of England that was born today--it is history, nothing is more historic. You should care, it's the future of one of the great countries of the world. 

All in all, I am so thrilled for the Duke and Duchess and their little prince! I cannot wait to see the little nugget and find out his name.

In the meantime, congratulations William and Kate, you are going to be incredible parents!
