In April 2013 I was in London and went to Evensong at Westminster Abbey, which reminded me of the last Royal Wedding that I and millions of others watched on TV. I’m not a monarchist but I’m a sucker for the old fairytales (you may have noticed I have written a lot of songs about fairytales). To me the idea of a prince marrying his princess and then having a royal baby conjures up images of Snowwhite, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and even Rumpelstiltskin. I am always overawed at the miracle of birth – every baby born is a miracle, but this one is a kind of fairytale miracle. So I’ve written this song for William and Kate. Hope they like it!
