Won't You Be My Neighbour?

Am I hallucinating, or did that used to be a song by Mr Rogers (I realise I've probably just dated myself here)?

Anyway, it's big excitement here in the 'hood, because as you may have heard, we have a new neighbour: Prince George.

TR Towers (ha!) is right around the corner from Kensington Palace, so we were delighted to welcome the new resident.On the day following his birth, Baby TR and I took a stroll around to see if we could greet him. Instead, we found the world's media gathering in eager anticipation.

Baby TR wasn't quite the baby they were waiting for, but he was happy to pose anyway.


No sooner had we arrived home than we heard the helicopters overhead and sirens blaring, welcoming the new prince home. Ah, well. We may have missed the royal baby, but I've got a little oligarch all for myself.

Have a great week, everyone!

  3. Hi Talli .. you certainly have one real oligarch all to yourselves without a journalist in site trying to peer into TR towers!

    Thankfully all went well for baby George ..

    Cheers Hilary

  17. It's so cool you get to be in the thick of things! I'm one of those Americans who perplexes you Brits because I'm such a fan of Kate and William and now baby George. I wish we had real royalty over here! Hollywood or reality show "royalty" is not the same at all.

    I must say, though, that Baby TR is looking far more princely than your newest neighbor! :)

    Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  20. Who on earth wrote that note. LOL! The Brits are generally shocked by the word 'fanny' even though it is also a girl's name.
    Your boy is such a cutie!

  27. I'm not entirely convinced that the media wasn't there to capture a picture of Baby TR.
