He was born in 1948 to create history (or so we were told). Charles Philip Arthur George was born on 14 November after a 30-hour labor in the Belgian Suite at Buckingham Palace, London. Prince Philip, his father, was smashing away at a game of tennis when the apparent heir to the British Throne was born – when asked what his son looked like he very bluntly declared “like a plum pudding.” The Royal birth was announced on a note, atop an easel placed outside the Buckingham Palace
Prince Charles was three when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne.
He was born in 1982 to create history (or so we thought). William Arthur Philip Louis was born on 21 June after being induced at the Lindo Wing, St. Mary’s Hospital, in London. Prince Charles was present at his son’s birth and seems to have admitted, “It is rather a grown up thing, I found. Rather a shock to the system.” The Royal birth was announced on a note, atop an easel placed outside the Buckingham Palace
31 years later, a grandmother then, Queen Elizabeth II had expertly seasoned the throne.
He was born in 2013 to create history (or so we dare to hope). The Baby Prince (Serious thought has to be put to name the baby, after all he is the future King) was born on 22 July, at the Lindo Wing, St Mary’s Hospital in London. Prince William was present at this son’s birth and plans to take two week off as paternity leave. The family is reported to have been “delighted” at the news (How curt is that?). The Royal birth was simultaneously announced on a thick brown-framed note atop an ornate dull gold easel outside the Buckingham Palace and on Social Media.
62 years later, a great grand mother now, Queen Elizabeth II still commands the throne, offering little hope to move and give accession to her son. As the number of “Kings-to-be” keeps increasing one wonders who is making the actual history.
For the time being the Baby Prince has added an extra sense of history as no royal birth has been subjected and garnered so much international media attention. As soon as the birth was announced “more than 200 tweets a minute we being posted that featured the words ‘Kate’ and ‘Labor.” VOA News
I don’t know what Queen Elizabeth ate during her pregnancy to give birth to a “Plum Pudding” however, it has been learnt that Princess Kate had enormous cravings of Sticky Toffee Pudding and Scones with cream and jam.
Keeping the two sweet killers in mind I came up with Sticky Toffee Scones. Mounds of royal delight that come with cinnamon infused aroma, specks of melted dates in a mouthful of buttery scone mixed with hints of brown sugar. And if topped with toffee sauce – that’s a royal treatment!
