The Queen has spoken of her happiness that her latest great-grandchild, Princess Charlotte, was a girl, the Daily Mail reports.
Chatting at the first Buckingham Palace garden party of the season today, the monarch said she was delighted to have another little girl in the family.
The Queen visited the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby at Kensington Palace before she was taken by her parents to Anmer Hall, their Norfolk home.
The Queen’s remarks at the Buckingham Palace garden party are the first time she has expressed any public opinion about the birth of the new princess, born just over a week ago, who is fourth in line to the throne.
The sun shone as around 8,000 people dressed in their finery poured into the grounds of the Palace to enjoy the afternoon party.
