Dear P2, You have now been out in the world longer than you were inside my tummy. You’re 9 months old! This month you’ve figured out how to bum shuffle. Only properly in the past few days actually.

However, when getting her home today and asking her about her day at school she owned up to actually …

“it was little Prince George’s christening today”

My Christening….So it was little Prince George’s christening today. Of course a huge event for the Royals and anyone who follows them.
