The arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child - a baby boy - is delightful news, but three children means a much richer and more complex set of interactions in a family.
Princess Charlotte has been giving the Duke of Cambridge "a few sleepless nights", he has told England Women's World Cup squad. William met the team at the National Football Centre today, before they jet off on Monday to start their campaign in Canada.
By merely being born, approximately on schedule, the new Baby Cambridge has performed the vital duty of taking Britain's mind off elections, tragedies, scandals and the fate of Jeremy Clarkson. Presumably the Duke and Duchess did not plan their second child's arrival for the run-up to polling day, but the timing - with its healthy whiff of royal insouciance - reminds us also of how serenely The Firm floats above the passage of lesser events.
