Celebration at Sea – Day 3 – Princess Charlotte

May 2, 2015.  The birth of a princess.

Today was a special day for so many reasons!  We hit the ground running and were in the city early – taking the Tube to the Kennsington Park area where we visited not only Kennsington Palace, but also the Princess Diana playground.

This is rather an inside joke…in our house we call farting “tooting” – so you can see where the giggles came from!

Our visit to Kennsington Palace was extra special – news crews were lined up outside the entrance on baby watch as there was much anticipation for the birth of a new royal pronce or princess.

While we toured the palace, it was announced that a princess was born and not long after, we learned her name – Princess Charlotte.  If you know me, you know I LOVE royal history and might be a bit of a royal geek.  So the fact that we were visiting Princess Charlotte’s home on the day of her birth with my own Charlotte was pretty cool!!!

My very own Princess Charlotte.

The rest of the day was just as great – we visited the Tower of London – always a favorite!  While we were waiting to get into the tower to view the Royal Jewels, Char decided to take a load off and sat down on the little fence right in front of a Royal Guard.  He stomped his foot, stepped forward, and shouted in a very stern voice, “GET OFF THE FENCE”.  He stomped his foot, stepped back, and proceeded his death stare like nothing ever happened!  Charlotte was mortified – the rest of us were trying not to laugh hilariously!

Check out some of these amazing memories made on this day!
