When you get into a chat with a tourist, you often talk about events going on back home in your own nation. Most of the time, you’ll want to try and give them a bit of cool information about where you come from: a smart fact or story that might impress them.
Well, one American tourist, in particular, got a bit more of a chat than they expected – when they began talking with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall!
When taking in a visit to Cuba, she was speaking with many people in and around the Havana area. The 12-day Royal Tour of the Caribbean is something that she’s taking on with Prince Charles. When she was talking with some tourists, she got talking with one person in particular, called Mimi Ricketts.
Mimi asked her if she was excited about the upcoming birth of the child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She announced, quite excitedly, that her answer was “Yes, very much so,” according to sources.
Camilla is no stranger to being nice about children, that’s for sure. In the past, she was happy to speak about her own experiences as a grandparent, saying in the documentary The Real Camilla: HRH The Duchess of Cornwall: “Yes, I’d recommend it to everybody,
“It’s very nice because you haven’t got the full responsibility. You can give them a wonderful time, spoil them, give them all the things their parents won’t allow them to have and then give them back again.”
During the same tour, Prince Charles was asked if he was happy to hear that the gender of the child would be a boy. The Prince was quite quick to announce that this particular piece of news had been celebrated and toasted “several times”.
The happy couple, though, are not the only part of British royalty waiting for the new arrival: so, too, are Prince William and Kate Middleton. When asked about it recently, she said that: “It’s such a special time to have little kiddies,
“And a cousin for George and Charlotte, as well, and Louis. It’ll be really special.”
For some time, the main Royals had not really seen much progress with regards to children. Ever since Kate met William, that has changed somewhat. Now, we’re regularly seeing new additions to the Royal family, leaving behind another line to take over in the long-term future.
Given how long Prince Charles has waited, though, they had better not get too excited about the prospect of sitting on the British throne!
