After months and months of speculation, Kate Middleton finally gave birth to a young baby boy early Monday afternoon, London time (UCT). Despite rumors to the contrary, Kate’s parents were at the hospital, along with Prince William and Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton. However, neither Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, nor Camilla Parker-Bowles were present in the delivery room, and they have yet to see the baby.
Prince Charles even released a statement about how he and Camilla have yet to see the baby, saying, “Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy. Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.”
I’m sure the Queen has probably seen her great-grandson by now, but how will William and Kate feel about allowing Camilla to come visit their baby? ‘In the near future’ is definitely odd phrasing, and it almost seems like they’re holding off for some reason. And I’m sure that Charles will see his grandson soon, but I’m not so sure about Camilla. William and Kate will probably allow it, but it must be painful for William to think about how his own mother is missing, and yet there’s Camilla trying to take her place.
Then again, Charles and Camilla weren’t present during the birth but Carole Middleton was. That says something.
