April is a very royal month. Lots of events and birthdays, including mine! What happened in royal history on my birthday? Let’s take a look:
Wedding of Tsar Alexander II of Russia and Marie of Hesse and by Rhine
Prince Harald of Denmark, third son of King Frederick VIII of Denmark, married Princess Helena of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg
King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand marries Mon Rajawongse Sirikit.
Birth of Lady Helen Taylor (daughter of the Duke of Kent)
Oh, and it’s also National Blueberry Pie day that day. Yum!
The rest of April is also very royal. My fellow April babies are:
Philippe, King of the Belgians
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark
Henri, Grand Duke of Luxembourg
Your fave and mine, Elizabeth II
King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands
Infanta Sofía of Spain
Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden
The late Princess Juliana (formerly Queen Juliana) of the Netherlands
April 29th is, famously, the wedding anniversary of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Isn’t April a great month? Not only is it spring, but it’s full of lovely events and royal history. Oh, and cake. You can’t beat it!
