Thread: Royal Baby

    I don't think William and Catherine will go against this precedence.
    Why? Do you know them personally?

    Why was she not expected to become queen? She was the only child of George IV and was next in line to the throne.

    It was very much expected that she would become Queen. The RF was in a state of panic at one stage as it was looking unlikely that there would be any heirs. George IV's only child died after childbirth, 2 years before Vic was born (had she survived, we would likely have had a Queen Charlotte- another 'new' name for a monarch, though there'd already been a Queen Charlotte, w/o George III), Prince Frederick had long since separated from his wife and had no children and William IV could not produce any healthy, legitimate heirs.

    I have a book somewhere which looks into why George IV was so intent on naming her after Alexander I of Russia, but I can't find it! I'm sure it said that he wished she'd reign as Queen Alexandrina. I'm glad she went with Victoria though!

    That's a bit of a silly thing to ask. Of course no one knows them personally. We're forming opinions based on nearly a 1000 years of royal-baby-naming tradition.

    That doesn't mean a thing if they want to call her daughter Rebecca, they could call her Rebecca. But your guess is good as mine and I just wanted to point that maybe baby-naming tradition break will not cause meteor swamp on London, so it's not important so much.

    Also
    I am deeply sure all these women are convinced they will choose some deeply traditional names just because they adore deeply traditional names and not because some baby-naming tradition which may be important as yesterday fi--.

    They could try (and possibly get the proposal shot down by HM), but there's a 99% chance that they wont. The BRF is basically the family that follows tradition to the nines out of all the royal families (maybe just with the exception of the Japanese Imperial Family), and I very much doubt they're gonna choose something out of the ordinary for a future King or Queen. I don't know about any meteor swamps, but I'm quite certain that there would be quite a hullabaloo if they pulled a Victoria and Daniel and named their child something like Estelle

    When Princess Charlotte of Wales was born and named, it would be widely expected that she would have a brother who would have displaced her in the line of succession. It wasn't until years later that if became obvious that she would be her father's only child.

    Same thing for her cousin Princess Victoria — not only would she have been expected to have a brother, but on top of that she had two uncles ahead of her in the line of succesion who could have produced children at any point in time. In fact, in the years after her birth her uncle William (IV) had a daughter (who given the family's lack of heirs was appropriately named Elizabeth, a "regal" name) and 3 sons who all died in infancy. It was telling of Victoria's litttle dynastical status that her parents were forbidden to give their daughter a queenly name (Charlotte and Elizabeth were their choices) and had to pick something "foreign" and unusual.

    If William and Kate's child is a girl, it will be the first time in history that a Princess will be expected to be Queen at birth.
