Royals Who Had Babies When They Were Very Young

Written by Dana Peterson

Royal families have a long history. They have been around for centuries. As a matter of fact, sometimes entire families were named after the royals, or the members of royalty in a particular society. Some royals had babies when they were very young.

Princess Diana

Twenty years after Princess Diana’s death in a car crash in Paris, her influence still appears most obvious in the attitudes and world-wide interest in her famous children, Princes William and Harry. The press, which initially portrayed the dashing princes as mere innocents caught up in the middle of a glamorous world tour, has taken the princess into its lap.

The press focus on the princes and their lives since their accident has grown to include trips to their birthplaces, trips to their schools (including a visit by the Queen), and even an extended feature-length documentary about their lives. All this while the princess – often presented as a romantic figure, rather than an expected Queen – has been essentially forgotten.

It is not simply the royals themselves who have been left out of the picture; there are numerous stories of Princess Diana’s private life being virtually ignored, with the result that many of the details surrounding her life are still fresh in our minds twenty years on.

In addition, the Princess’s husband, Carlos Bautista, also became a key figure in the Princess’s life, drawing public attention to the realities of Spanish life during the late 1950s and into the early 1960s. In one instance, Bautista was quoted as saying of Princess Diana, ‘She had the look of a woman who was afraid to die’.

These remarks were picked up and widely distributed by the tabloids and the press, who used them as the basis for much coverage of the Princess’s marriage and divorce.

The press pursued a relentlessly hostile attitude toward the royals, and their continuing silence on the Princess’s murder raises serious questions about their own motivations for covering the Princess’s death.

Princess Anne

It is commonly believed that Princess Anne was married to King Henry VIII and that the two got married in the year 1536, but there are other accounts as well. According to historical records, one of Annes first suitors was Richard Meade, a successful Olympic athlete who reportedly brought interest to the game through his good looks.

Princess Anne and Richard Meade are thought to be close friends, and they might have even gone to the extent of inviting each other to parties and entertainments. Prince Arthur also seems to have been interested in Annes husband, Sir James depended on her for his advice, as well as protection during his time of trial and confusion.

There are various theories about what exactly happened to the couple while they were on their way to England, but there were also some that claim that they never got off the boat, which ultimately ended up at the tower of London.

In the middle of summer, while they were supposedly having breakfast with the royals, Princess Anne got sick and stayed in bed for most of the day. Her husband, Sir James, and her maid, Timothy Laurence, worried for her, but they were afraid to let her go home because she might suffer another attack by some “foreign bug”. But, fortunately, Princess Anne recovered in time and went back to the Tower of London where she lived for the remainder of her life.

Prince Charles

Prince Charles is one of the most famous royals in the world today. He is also a member of the Winds of Change, which is the royals who had babies when they were very young.

Prince Charles is the god father to many children, including his two sons, Edward and James. He is also said to be the father of the modern-day British monarchy, although he doesn’t have any children of his own.

Many people are aware that the royal family has members that have already passed on.

Their youngest member, Princess Diana, is not here to see her baby anymore, so her unborn child is without a mother. Other members of the family have already died, including the kings and queens of England and Scotland.

It is possible that Prince Charles’s baby will someday have his own throne. When he does, he will be king over everyone, just as his great-grandparents once were. All of their children will enjoy the royal family heritage and continue the royal bloodline.

Prince Harry

Prince Harry was also spotted in the Company of the RCP (Royal Private Military) with his two brothers who are serving with the regiment, they were dressed in their ceremonial army uniforms.

There is a rumour going around that the Windsors may be getting a baby boy into the family in the near future. If this is true then that would be nice for Harry who has always been fascinated by little babies.

If Harry is not big on babies and if he does not have any boys in his immediate future, then he must have a penchant for one, especially one who is a little older like my sister Meghan Markle, who is five months older than him.

She was recently spotted looking very happy outside the gates of the Royal Wedding in London and not without her baby in a pram, which just goes to show how popular she is with her dad and his baby. Harry’s star studded smile as he introduces Meghan Markle to her father and baby will no doubt make this baby girl an overnight sensation.
