This is the birth certificate for Princess Charlotte. A certificate no different to anyone's in the UK.
All births are miraculous, and all parents are rightly proud of their new arrivals. Birth represents nature in its purest form.
But I've been really quite disturbed by some of the disgraceful comments that I've read following the recent birth of Princess Charlotte; mostly on 'Facebook'.
Her parents seem to me to be a very pleasant ordinary couple, by chance caught up in a family where hard work and long hours are obligatory. Simply by a fluke of parentage, they have been signed-up to life at the objective end of the world's microscope; a life I wouldn't wish on anyone. Then when a baby arrives a few idiotic anarchists send hate mail, and write derogatory comments about them.
None of us choose our parents; we get what turns up, and we make the best of it. Some are born into wealthy families, others struggle to get by. Fortunately very few are born into such tight royal circles where one's life is rigorously predetermined.
Those with huge chips on their shoulders seem to think that the birth of Princess Charlotte is the perfect excuse for an outpouring of venom, but Kate and Wills are young people just like anyone else, and unwarranted hatred is hurtful. They eat three meals a day (if they're lucky), they catch colds in winter, and they get up at night to change nappies; they are really no different to the trolls who berate them.
In some ways I feel sorry for their detractors; to live a life of such anger envy and hatred must be debilitating. So I urge all those who have recently spilled their bile, to try to be happy for Kate and Wills, as others probably were when they themselves were born. They now have a beautiful little daughter, who I'm sure will grow into a well balanced hard-working individual.
Don't be envious of them, they have a very hard life ahead of them. It may seem like heaven to live in huge houses amongst such riches, but, believe me, they look upon their surroundings in exactly the same way that you and I do.
