Kate Middleton is just weeks into her pregnancy and bump watchers are already going gaga over the news, but this isn’t the first time a royal baby has caused frenzy.
Thirty years ago when proud papa-to-be Prince William was born, the world went wild. From the start of their relationship, Prince Charles and Diana captivated the public . Over 750 million viewers tuned in to their fairytale wedding in the summer of 1981, so of course the UK went baby crazy when just a few months later, the young couple announced they were expecting.
As a mom, the People’s Princess was as popular as ever, and the world was already captivated by the idea of two mini princes by the time of gingered haired Harry’s arrival in 1984.
Of course back in the day, their father Prince Charles also caused quite the commotion among the royals when he was born to a then Princess Elizabeth in 1948. And grandfather King George VI was as thrilled as ever to welcome a new heir to the throne.
Take a look at all the adorable young royals, from little King George V to the Windsor cousins in the video below.
