Another dashing royal British couple has welcomed a child. Lord Freddie Windsor, 34, and his fetching actress wife Sophie Winkleman, 33, brought a baby girl into the world on August 15, reported US Weekly.
Best known for her role in the CBS television series Two and a Half Men (you know, the one where Ashton Kutcher replaced that irreverent, misbehaving bad-boy Charlie Sheen), Winkleman and her husband chose to name their daughter Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina. This royal baby is a few paces behind Prince George, at 42nd in line to the throne. Baby Maud is the first granddaughter to Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Windsor’s parents.
Oddly enough, this royal baby was born in Los Angeles. The couple transplanted their so Mom-to-be could pursue her acting career while Dad-to-be worked as a financial analyst.
Of course when we heard this name selection all we could think about was Maud of that effortlessly cool indie flick from the 70s, Harold and Maud, in which an older, srpitely woman named Maud shines an inextinguishable fire for life, which she shares with an initially unaffected and lost young man (did we mention the soundtrack is entirely old-school Cat Stephens?). It’s a touching movie. You should watch it. With your mate. And think of this precious royal baby girl if you like.
Wishing this royal family a large dollop of joy.
