The announcement of the newest addition to the royal family may or may not have had you thinking: What would life be like if I was royalty?

Maybe, just maybe, the new royal baby will have a life a lot more similar to yours than you might think.

“He will be brought up by parents who are very in touch with reality, and bending over backwards to seem relevant to the world,” says Susan Maxwell Skinner, a Carmichael resident and photojournalist who covered the royal family nearly 30 years ago.

It’s a new age, she says, unlike any other.

“The current queen can trace her ancestry back to the Norman conquest in 1066,” Skinner says.

And, Skinner says Kate and William are shaking up a lot of tradition.

They will be the first royal couple to live without servants.

“Their son will be the first royal baby who won’t have a nanny,” Skinner says. “Kate will look after and change the baby herself, just like any other mom.”

The official announcement was made via Twitter. The royal family has not yet released the name of the new baby.
