When Royalty comes to Tea...
This past weekend we were honored to have HRH Princess Kennedy of Pflugerville grace us with her presence. The occasion was the celebration of HRH Kennedy's 4th birthday which was actually on 6th October. But as is customary with Royalty, her "official celebration" is on a different day so as to allow her subjects the joy of public celebration. According to my sources:
"The tradition of having an official birthday for the Sovereign was begun for practical reasons. Monarchs who had their birthdays in the winter months often encountered problems due to cold, wet weather spoiling parades and other outdoor celebrations."
Therefore, her alternate celebration fell on Saturday 18th October this year. We wish her Highness a happy and healthy year and are quite pleased to have been honored with her and her entourage in our home this year.
Please go here for further photographs of this grand occasion. And MANY happy returns of the day, Princess Kennedy! LONG LIVE THE PRINCESS!!
