    Daughter!!

    Autumn Phillips gave birth to a little girl yesterday, making Princess Anne a Granny and The Queen and Phillip Great Grandparents.

    Official Royal Family Website ~ Mrs Peter Phillips has given birth to a baby girl, 30 December 2010

    And while I'm saying yesterday, remember it's already New Year's Eve in Britain, so...

    No, it isn't. It's December 30th.

    that in the 21st century anyone would be called Mrs. Peter Phillips.
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    The Princess Royal is Princess Anne, Peter's mother. Princess Royal is a title customarily given to the eldest daughter of the sovereign. More here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Royal

    Thanks, MLIS.

    Um, Your Royal Highness? That hair hasn't been in fashion since the 60's.

    Well, I think it's now obvious the vicious bug I've been battling since Boxing Day has affected my brain cells.

    Thanks for the correction!!

    Hehehe... It's Princess Anne's way. She's quite famous for recycling nearly 30-year old dresses. She wore the same dress to a wedding in the past year or two (I want to say Freddy Windsor's wedding but I'm not positive) that she wore to Charles & Diana's wedding back in 1981. So, why not keep the same hairstyle? I suspect that I'd quite like Princess Anne if I knew her personally.

    Poor Anne - not too many real people have to worry that someone will recognize a dress they once wore almost 30 years earlier. Good on her for her waste-not-want-not attitude.

    I assume it is their way of assuring that everyone knows exactly who it is in relation to the Queen. More people probably recognize Peter Phillips as her grandson than his wife's name, since they do not have titles and are not in the news every fourteen seconds like their cousins.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
