Another Grandson for the Queen

britishflag.jpgSophie, Countess of Wessex, who is married to the Queen?s youngest son, Edward, gave birth to their second child, a boy, this week. Sophie and Edward already have a daughter, Lady Louise, who is now four but who was born a month early due to her mother becoming seriously ill. Due to this, an ectopic pregnancy and failed IVF, the couple had thought that they would have no more children. However, the newborn was conceived naturally and born by elective Caesarian section and weighed in at 6lb 2oz.

The child will be known as Viscount Severn, but has not yet been named, the couple took 17 days to name their first child. Sophie and Edward want their children to live as normal a life as possible and therefore they were born in a National Health Service Hospital rather than a private one and the parents have requested that they do not have the usual HRH (His/Her Royal Highness) before their names. The little boy is 8th in line for the throne.

Needless to say, the parents are delighted.
