Hello, and welcome to the first birthday special at Blithe and Bonny! And who are we celebrating today? None other than His Royal Highness, The Duke of Cambridge, a.k.a. Prince William. Standing second-in-line to the throne (behind his father, HRH The Prince of Wales), Prince William has been no stranger to the limelight.
He has been followed by the media since his infancy. His mother, the late Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, was often seen taking him and his brother, Harry, out and about in London—whether it was shopping or enjoying a meal at McDonalds (yes, the Prince has deigned to eat at McDonalds and—dare I say—enjoyed it!) they could be seen with a smile, hand-in-hand with their mother. But fate, unfortunately, took her away too early. Lady Diana passed away in 1997 in a vehicular accident in Paris. But this did not stop William from following in her footsteps.
