Prince Harry was in Australia when his sister-in-law Duchess Kate gave birth. That’s just the way it goes sometimes, and Harry made his plans knowing full well that he would miss the birth. I don’t think he really cared, but he did release a statement from Australia about his new little niece (name still unknown):

Us Weekly says that Harry was waiting up in Australia to hear news of the baby, with a source saying: “Harry was worried he would be asleep when the news broke, so he was really happy that he was up to take the call from William.”
As for how Harry is occupying his time in Australia… well, he’s doing his military stuff, but there’s a rumor going around that he might have some free time for romance. The Daily Mail claims that Harry is still talking to Chelsy Davy, that Davy recently broke up with her boyfriend Charles Goode, and that Chelsy is thinking about visiting Harry in Australia. A source says, “Yet again there is talk that they seem to be rekindling something.” Oh, just get married and be done with it!
As for the lack of baby name still, more than 48 hours after Kate gave birth… I don’t know what to tell you. The royal reporters were hoping we would get a name today, but Richard Palmer says that Will & Kate still haven’t exactly decided on a name, and they want to inform the Queen before everyone else. So… hopefully later today.
I’m also including some photos of the Queen on Saturday, shortly after she heard she now has a new great-granddaughter. She wore hot pink for the occasion!
