This week the world was delighted with the arrival of the new royal prince who was born in London on St George’s Day.
As the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the young prince, who weighed 8lb 7oz, is fifth in line to the throne, after his sister Princess Charlotte, his brother Prince George and his father and grandfather.
This happy event is one of many special occasions for our Royal family this year, who are set to celebrate numerous weddings amongst other things.
Just last week Her Majesty The Queen celebrated her 92nd birthday, whilst hosting leaders of the commonwealth in London.
During this Commonwealth Heads of Government gathering, the Queen told the 53 countries that it was her wish for her son HRH Prince Charles to become the next leader of the organisation. On Friday it was confirmed that he will become the next leader of the Commonwealth, a role which the Queen took up in 1952.
Appointing Prince Charles as the next head of the commonwealth is not a decision they had to take, yet it highlights more and more duties being handed over to him from his mother.
Throughout her reign, The Queen has continued to work tirelessly in her role and despite still being amazingly active and even continuing to ride her horses, she is understandably passingsome of her duties to the younger members of her family.
One of those who is taking on more of a public role is Prince Harry, who will marry his fiancé Meghan Markle in Windsor in less than a month. As well as his involvement in a wide range of charities, The Queen has appointed him a youth ambassador for the Commonwealth, a role which his future wife is also due to take on.
The younger royals have taken on their roles with confidence and passion, similar to that of The Queen and HRH Prince Philip, who only decided to retire from public life last year at the age of 96.
I wish our Royal family many congratulations on their latest addition and much happiness for the future.
