Beautiful isn't he ? A hint of "copper" like his dad.

Why is Shirley from EastEnders standing behind them?

Jane10 Sat 06-Jul-19 17:13:21

Is she the wicked fairy godmother?

Pittcity Sat 06-Jul-19 17:16:07

They are Diana's sisters but don't seem to have her style.

Pittcity Sat 06-Jul-19 17:23:22

Lovely that they were included though.

Why do the press keep calling the Duchess of Cambridge 'Kate Middleton'?
And the Duchess of Sussex 'Meghan Markle'?

I know it's The Sun, perhaps they missed the news about their marriages, but I think other msm do it too.

Not a happy baptism photograph, and the ‘gazing photograph ‘ is naff

Callistemon Sat 06-Jul-19 17:48:40

Ahhh, we had one taken like that with DGS smile

but it wasn't in the msm.

No it isn't. Don't be mean. It's a very happy photo. How could it not be with that little baby as the centre of attention?

Anniebach Sat 06-Jul-19 18:10:22

I am not being mean, the gazing is naff, Harry gazes at the baby whilst she gazes at Harry, the baby is beautiful

MOST young women I know prefer to be known by their maiden names .Its considered very old fashioned to take your husbands name after marriage ,maybe thats all there is to it

Beautiful picture beautiful baby and a lovely young couple I hope they are very happy with that little bundle of joy

I thought it old-fashioned to take husband’s name when I married in 1968! I did, though, because it was much easier to spell than mine. My DIL hasn’t.

Am I alone in thinking it’s a bit odd the Queen wasn’t there? Diary clash, apparently. I’d have thought they would consult the Queen first about the date. Must check whether she went to all of William and Kate’s children’s christenings.

The Queen wasn't at Louis' christening either, Grandma70s

I read somewhere that the real reason is because she doesn't want to attend close family occasions without Prince Philip.

Anniebach Sat 06-Jul-19 19:03:05

How relaxed everyone looks

Alima Sat 06-Jul-19 19:38:56

Pittcity, why is Shirl in the background? Well spotted, ha, ha.

BlueBelle Sat 06-Jul-19 20:08:14

You see what your looking for

JenniferEccles Sun 07-Jul-19 08:41:42

All that speculation about whether he would have ginger or black frizzy hair and now we have the answer- he hasn’t any at all yet!

EllanVannin Sun 07-Jul-19 11:15:33

He's a nicer looking baby than his dad was. My thoughts.

Penny Junors piece in the Sunday Times today hits the nail on the head in a very respectful way.

Now that is bitchy. But I had thought similar (but not so rudely)

Gonegirl Sun 07-Jul-19 12:20:40

It's that hat.
