  • Britain's new princess can't expect fairy-tale life

    William and Kate's new daughter is the first British princess who won't face royal discrimination because she's a girl, but that doesn't mean her life will be a fairy tale.

The experience of Kate — and, even more, of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana — suggests the level of interest the princess can expect.

  • Drivers hit by cars 'double tax'

    Motorists are being hit by the "double taxing" of cars for the month they change hands under new regulations accompanying the scrapping of the need to show tax discs on windscreens, the AA has said.

  • Royal baby belies problems of the ageing Windsors

    The birth of a princess on Saturday demonstrated the enduring strength of Britain's rulers, consolidating four generations of a family now more popular than ever, but cannot hide the weaknesses of an ageing institution. Queen Elizabeth II turned 89 just weeks ago and shows no sign of abdicating, even if she has stepped back a little from public duties in favour of her 66-year-old son and heir Charles, the Prince of Wales. Prince William and his wife Kate's second child will be fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William, and his first-born George -- a strong dynasty that could continue for another century.
