Here’s How Royal Births Changed After One Doctor Came Along

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and Prince WilliamShutterstockThe new royal baby, the third child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is here, and the Internet is ecstatic. Like his brother Prince George and sister Princess Charlotte, the new little prince was welcomed into the world at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington. But compared to most of the royal family history, these events were outliers. (Need a primer on who’s who in the royal family? Check out our royal family tree.)

The birth of a royal child was always considered an event, but the specific setting of it was very different for several centuries. On June 21, 1982, Prince William made history by becoming the first royal baby born in a hospital. Prior to William’s birth, heirs to the throne were born in palaces, castles, and other royal estates, frequently in front of bystanders, who would serve as witnesses to confirm the legitimacy of the birth.

It wasn’t until 1936 that the practice of having an Anglican archbishop and other officials present at the birth was phased out. Privacy proved to be more paramount than some 17th-century aristocrat rolling over in his grave about monarchs switched at birth.

In the 1970s, one of the former royal gynecologists, John Peel, published a widely circulated and influential report which convinced many British women to phase out home births for hospital births, and sure enough, the royal family followed suit. The man responsible for the big switch to royal hospital births was John Pinker, Queen Elizabeth’s surgeon gynecologist.

Pinker followed the advice of his predecessor and eventually was able to put the long-standing royal birth tradition to bed. Pinker would deliver Prince William at St. Mary’s, and then go on to deliver eight more royal babies in his tenure. Princess Diana would enjoy much more privacy than the regal women before her, having an entire hospital wing to herself.

Some royal traditions, like why Prince George is always wearing shorts or the royal family autograph policy, seem destined to stay in place for a while. But it’s probably for the best that this one went out the door. Just one less job for the archbishop to worry about.

The Third Royal Baby is Finally Here!


For the royal family, everything—even the most innocuous actions—seems to be worth noting. There’s even a scientific reason why people care so much about the royals. But when something like a pregnancy or a baby is announced, the doors are blown off and the world goes into a frenzy of excitement, rejoicing about the arrival of a potential future sovereign of the U.K.  (A few decades ago, this doctor changed the history of royal births.)

So, ever since it was announced that Kate Middleton was pregnant with her third child, the royal-loving public has been chomping at the bit for news. And on April 23, 2018, at 11:01 am local time, Princess Kate gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Kensington Palace revealed the news on Twitter—Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s new baby brother is here, weighing in at eight pounds, seven ounces.

In October 2017, when the palace’s Twitter confirmed that the baby’s anticipated due date was in April, Anglophiles began wondering if the new royal would share a birthday with his or her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who celebrated her 92nd birthday on April 21, 2018. And while the new prince didn’t arrive on the exact day, he will celebrate his birthday two days after Her Majesty!

Does the arrival of the third royal baby shake anything up in the royal family tree’s line of succession? Yes, yes it does, and here’s how.

This Is How the Third Royal Baby Completely Changes British Royal Succession History

Unless you’ve been too enthralled with your Monday morning activities to check the news, you’ll know that Prince William and Kate have welcomed their third baby. Anglophiles, rejoice!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s big news has already made a ripple online. But you may not know that the new royal addition also has a major impact on the British royal line of succession.

The British royal family lives by some pretty strict rules. For example, the royals have banned their kids from having these popular toys. Here’s another one: Male royals have traditionally had precedence over their sisters when it comes to inheriting the crown. But thanks to the Succession of the Crown Act in 2013, a female child can officially maintain her place in line for succession, no matter the gender of her younger sibling or siblings.

That spells good news for Princess Charlotte, who is currently fourth in line for the throne. She may not be the youngest anymore, but her status for the crown doesn’t change—even though she now has a little brother, age takes precedence over gender for the first time in royal succession history. Don’t miss these unbearably cute moments of the adorable Princess Charlotte.

Still, a third royal baby means that poor Prince Harry has been bumped down again in the royal succession chain, making him sixth in line for the crown. But we have a feeling the three-time uncle isn’t too upset. Having trouble keeping track of who’s who? This easy chart explains the entire royal family.
