I think that all the dodgy photos we see elsewhere make everything else seem odd too!

I certainly wouldn't wear high heels so soon after giving birth (not that I ever did or do now) and how is Catherine (I refuse to call her by the media's name for her) at the same time both walking down the steps carrying George II and also with William carrying him in that seat thing, I can't think quite what it's called.

Scary, walking down concrete steps, tottering in stiletto shoes, carrying a newborn. Can't think of anything dafter! Admittedly she looks wonderful, even Piers Morgan commented on how she managed to look like that just hours after giving birth, but wearing those shoes and looking round at the photographers whilst walking down those stairs, was indeed not clever imo.

A reminder of this bizarre video from 2016 which was supposedly put out from Kensington Palace but which seems to consist of not very good lookalikes.

No recent princes with Louis as their first name so it makes a change.

Bert would have been my choice.

If you mean Albert, that wouldn't have been a surprise.

I wonder if the name is specifically in honour of the baby's great great great uncle (I think that's the right relationship) Lord Louis Mountbatten.

Yes it is I think, it was on the news..

There was always speculation about which one of the children would bear the name, there was much discussion on it when Prince William and Prince Harry were born. As it was William was given the name Louis...

Prince William's full name is 'William Arthur Philip Louis', his family name is 'Mountbatten-Windsor' and he can also use 'Wales' or 'Cambridge' as a surname. His most frequently used formal title is 'Prince William, Duke of Cambridge'.

To be fair Mountbatten was not the families real name and in no way Phillips....Phil is Danish,German and Russian with bitz and Louis goes back on his eccentric mothers side...this is on answers......

PHILIP isn't Greek!!!! He is Danish-German-English-Russian.His Royal House Name is 
Schlessweig-Holstein- 
Sonderburg-Glucksburg. 
He adopted the English name of his relatives,the Mountbattens,when he became a naturalised British citizen.They originally were Battenbergs. 
The family was asked to take on the Greek throne in a most unusual fashion.Queen Alexandra,then Princess of Wales had a brother named Willi.He was approached by Lords Palmerston and Russell;they asked the 18 year oled WIlliam if he'd like to be King of Greece. He thought they were joking and said he'd like nothing better.The next day it was announced that he had agreed to become King!No other royal family in Europe wanted the job,so everyone said that William could have the throne.

The family name was changed during the First World War because of the embarrassment of having a German name while at war with the Germans; family disagreements can be horrendous!

What happened to the previous Greek royal family - wasn't there anyone to succeed in the usual way?

Will anyone be watching the latest wedding on Saturday?

The question when asked on Facebook usually ends up with the topic being removed due to abuse. I think we're a bit more civilised here!

No I won't be - I don't do weddings!

It helps for me that I don't mind the royal family one way or the other so I can let the blanket news coverage whenever there is a wedding or a birth just wash over me.

Some people get so wound up though - they need to chill out!

I'm working.

But if I wasn't I'd be in Newcastle for Magic Weekend. Damn selfish of Harry & Merkin to ignore this crucial event. Typical Union fans.

I won't be watching - I feel sorry for the poor dad who okay has been stupid but should have received help. The treatment of this poor, sick man has been shoddy beyond belief and doesn't  show either Harry or Meghan in a good light, IMO. I don't believe they wanted him there in the first place and the idea of him alone in hospital whilst they parade the streets lapping up attention makes me shudder.

I watched most of it and what a truly wonderful wedding. A beautiful day, the sun shone, and the couple looked so happy and in love... Fabulous cheers I thought it the best royal wedding ever, the service in the chapel was so refreshing.

Just sad the father couldn't be there.

I really enjoyed it too! I cried for quite a bit of it.

Thought it was amazing.

But I am sentimental... flower

Yes - sad her father couldn't be there and also Diana...I think he is a credit to her. He was so sweet at the service and I felt it was genuine.

Try saying Meghan's new title the Duchess of Sussex quickly. I can't say it even slowly without nearly spitting my teeth out!
