The Queen is a great-grandmum

Last Wednesday, Peter Phillips and his wife, Autumn, became parents of a daughter, making Queen Elizabeth II a newly minted great-grandmother.

So today the newspapers are announcing the baby's name.


Yes, Savannah Phillips.

Somewhere, Brooklyn Beckham and Paris Hilton are having a good giggle.

What do you think of the name? Fresh and modern, a nice change from the Georges and Beatrices? Or too chavvy for you?


  1. It has a beautiful ring to it, but like everything else, it has a bit of a chav connotation now.

  2. Agree, Expat Mum. When you say it aloud, it sounds so pretty ... plus, I love the city of Savannah, one of my favorite places on earth. It's just not very royal, is it?

  3. There is that to consider.


I love comments!
