celebrate the birth of the new princess.

Elizabeth met her new great-granddaughter. Other visitors to the Princess were the
Prince of Whales and the Duchess of Cornwall, her grand parents on her father’s side.

sister, Pippa Middleton, met the child.
On May 6, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave photographer the slip so
they could head to their new home in the countryside, Anmer Hall. They went in the
back entrance to evade photographers and others there to catch a glimpse of their new
Princess. The family is expected to stay at Anmer Hall for the bulk of the summer
months. The Duke and Duchess, who are very protective of their children’s privacy, will
probably keep the new princess and her brother out of the world’s view. Princess
Charlotte’s christening will most likely be the only public event for the new royal.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to raise their children at the
spacious Kensington Palace. Prince During her pregnancy, Kate spent most of her time
over seeing the renovations. The expected total cost was £1.5 million. They were so
pleased with the renovation that the Duke and Duchess invited the builders over for
drinks. Now the grounds are renovated for the royal children to grow up in after their summer stint in Anmer Hall.
