Prince William and Kate Middleton’s yet-to-be born royal baby is already flouting tradition! The birth of the Duke and Duchess’ new born will be announced first on Twitter. According to The Sunday Times following up with new age technology, the news of Prince George’ sister or brother’s birth will be tweeted to the world!
Age old tradition of officially announcing the details of the birth will also be done by posting on the easel behind the gates of Buckingham Palace, in a bid to retain the “the theater” associated with the royal occasion.
Royal sources inform that there will be less ceremony surrounding the delivery of the piece of paper from the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s to Buckingham Palace. The signed document will be taken out of a side door and delivered to the palace in an unmarked vehicle.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have in many ways tried to prove that they are a 21st century royal couple. The Duke and Duchess have always blended modernity and tradition impeccably. In the past. they have made formal announcements about their engagement in October 2010 on Twitter a month later.
When Prince George was born on July 2013, it was first announced in an emailed press release to the journalists. A formal notice signed by the doctors who delivered him was taken by police escort to Buckingham Palace and displayed at the gates.
“We wanted to retain some of the theater of the notice. It is quite important to us that this is done properly and with the degree of dignity that the event demands,” said a royal spokesperson back then. He had further said that since the child (Prince George) will be in line to the throne, they wanted to do it with some “historical precedence.”
Kate Middleton is due to deliver on April 27. The birth of the newborn may also coincide with the 4th wedding Anniversary of Kate and William on April 29.
