Royal Surprise: Prince Louis makes royal history!

Prince Louis

At 11:01 A.M. on April 23, 2018, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, Prince Louis of Cambridge was born, and so, as it happens in all families.

However, most notably in the British royal family, the rankings began. At the moment of his birth, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third born, Louis was and still is 5th in line to throne. 

But it soon became apparent that there was one category in which Prince Louis, hold the number one ranking. And that was his birth weight. At birth, little Louis weighed in at a robust 8 pounds 7 ounces. That’s more than either of his siblings weighed when they were born.

This made him the number one heaviest Cambridge baby.

Not only does Louis rank as the number one heaviest Cambridge baby, but he also ranks as the number one heaviest newborn heir to the throne in at least 100 years. And he is holding onto that record at the moment. There are, however, two caveats.

First, Prince Louis is not the heaviest baby ever born to the royal family. That distinction was first earned by Savannah Phillips, in 2010. Baby Savannah weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces when she was born. She then lost her ranking in June 2018, when Zara Tindall gave birth to Lena Tindall. She weighed a whopping 9 pounds 3 ounces. 

Well, the second one is quite interesting.

Many are predicting that Prince Louis’s record will fall upon the birth of the baby expected by Harry and Meghan. This prediction is based apparently on the size of the Duchess of Sussex’s bump.

However, that may or may not actually be an accurate measure of the size of the baby Meghan is carrying. According to Kyrin Dunston, MD FCOG, the apparent size of a woman’s pregnancy bump is affected by many different factors. Such as like her bone structure and the shape and size of her pelvis and rib cage.

However, the only thing we are 100% sure about is that the new royal baby arrival will definitely change the royal line of succession.
