Source of excitement for the Press
May 2nd was the date
When an adorable princess
Was born to Wills and Kate.
Fourth in line now to the throne
And the hope of this fine nation
The royal child's name was unknown
Which caused great consternation.
Obliged to hold our breath and wait
For the couple to decide
How Prince George would his sister fête
The choice was open wide.
“Alice” seemed to top the poll
In the royals' wonderland
What was their dynastic goal?
Such decisions must be planned...
The secret's out at last, my friends
It's Charlotte, Liz, Diana
Methinks this name will start new trends
In no uncertain manner!
