• Why Prince Charles hasn't met the royal baby yet

    Prince Charles's excitement at becoming a grandfather for the third time was evident when he released a statement following the birth of William and Kate's baby boy. But the 69-year-old is still yet to meet his new grandchild, who was born earlier this week, on Monday 23 April.

  • This is when Prince William and Kate Middleton will register the royal baby's birth

    Prince William and Kate are due to announce the name of their third child imminently, after which they will formally register the birth of their son. It's likely that the Duke will sign the birth register entry on behalf of himself and his wife, as he did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

    Kirstie Allsopp has jumped to the Duchess of Cambridge's defense after the mum-of-three received criticism for not speaking to the public while introducing the new royal baby to the world on Monday. The Location, Location, Location presenter has said that Kate would have felt "pressured" to follow in the steps of the late Princess Diana, who appeared on the steps of the Lindo Wing with a newborn Prince William, and later Prince Harry after their births. Appearing on Good Morning Britain on Thursday, Kirstie said: "She's always going to feel that pressure. Diana came out and did it. So,

  • The Dutch royal family as you've never seen them before

    King Willem-Alexander and his wife Queen Máxima have posed for new official portraits with their three daughters Princess Catharina-Amalia, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane. The striking set of photographs, which were released by the Dutch palace to celebrate the king's five years on the throne, show the family looking ultra-glamorous and camera-ready.
