Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge

is nursing and falling asleep with lullaby,

unperturbed by gun salutes, photographers and press.

Her role today is to remind us

of what matters most, cooing her wisdom

royally on this great stage of fools.

Inspired by reading that Carol Ann Duffy, the British Poet Laureate, refused to write a poem to commemorate the birth of the new royal, Charlotte Elizabeth Diane. (Isn’t that part of the job?) And so a new Spectator Literary Competition was born to write one.
