Queen Mathilde fullfilled the dream of several Make-A-Wish Foundation participants and hosted them for tea  (Place Royale)

Wonderful wishes have been pouring in for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their daughter this morning. More literal tributes from The Royal Navy, the Tower Bridge, and the fountains at Trafalgar Square are particularly memorable. A royal salute will happen Monday afternoon.

One thought on “This Week’s Extras

  1. This Week’s Extras was very informative as usual so thanks again HatQueen! Congratulations Your Royal Highnesses on becoming parents again! I hope the newborn is called Princess Elizabeth, or at least has that as a middle name. Prince George looked so cute waving to the gathered throng. Happy Birthday to the Swedish King and Princess Estelle is another cute little royal. How kind of Queen Mathilde to host a tea party for Make-A-Wish.
