Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I’ve heard that Kate and William have been receiving congratulations from around the world for the birth of their son, so I thought I would add my congratulations from the Greenygrey world. And I’d also like to thank Kate for holding on until the greenygrey weather returned to Blighty for the birth.
New Star Foretells Birth? Lightning Follows
This blog starts with lightning photographed after the royal birth, and ends with an image of a new star seen early on the day of the birth.
Royal Baby Name Update
The odds on Greenygrey being chosen as the royal baby’s name must have shortened with all the greenygrey weather.
I think that adding a historic name would also be a good idea, and that Æthelwulf would go nicely with Greenygrey.
Æthelwulf was the King of Wessex in the 9th century, and is the father of Alfred the Great. Æthelwulf is Old English for ‘noble wolf’. In those days Britain was pretty similar to Native American culture.
We also think that the weather conditions could be remembered in the name.
So that brings us to our final name proposal for the royal baby, and our hope that in the late twenty-first century there will be a King Greenygrey Æthelwulf Thunderylightning I sitting on the throne.
There was a representative from the animal kingdom there this morning, making it seem quite pagany.
It wasn’t a wolf unfortunately, but it was just about the next best thing: an eagle.
It was apparently brought to the palace after people were disappointed it was not the messenger of the royal birth, after people mixed eagle up with easel: news of the birth was first presented on an easel.
A Bright New Star Foretold the Royal Birth
I thought the royal birth might happen yesterday when I saw a bright new star appear in the morning Sky… oh no, it was in fact the BBC.
It was Hacker T. Dog, the brightest new anthropomorphic star we’ve seen since Alexandr Orlov burst onto our screen in the Compare the Meerkat (Market) adverts; and best puppet since Gordon the Gopher.
Hacker was on form with Bill and Susanna on the breakfast sofa.
We wish both the royal baby and Hacker the best for the future; as well as all the other new life born in the last couple of days…
