  • 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.

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.
