The Queen’s first great-grandchild has been named Savannah. The baby girl, who is 12th in line to the throne, was born on December 29 to the Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips and his Canadian wife Autumn. Although her name had not been officially yet, it was revealed at a church service yesterday at the Royal estate of Sandringham, Norfolk, attended by the Royal family.
Rector of Sandringham the Reverend Jonathan Riviere made a mention in a prayer for “Peter and Autumn Phillips and their daughter Savannah.”
It was the first time the name had been used in public. The name is rare in the UK and is thought to have no special meaning beyond what it signifies when describing the landscape – an open plain.
In the same church service, Princess Anne vowed not to spoil her first grandchild.
Harry, the Prince of Darts
A smiling Prince Harry stuns fans by turning up to watch the World Darts Championships last night.
The 26-year-old royal – on a break from military duties – sat in the VIP area with pals including ex-England rugby union star Will Greenwood, 38. Harry stayed off the booze but he did go to the bar and returned with a round of lagers in plastic cups for his mates.
The Prince sneaked into Alexandra Palace, North London, when the lights were down. After Lewis beat Mark Webster to win a place in the grand final tonight, Prince Harry broke royal protocol and went up to congratulate him with a hug.
It appears like Harry remained in the UK for the entire holiday season, squashing rumours that he would spend part of it in South Africa with ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
