A is for artificial insemination

In her biography of the Queen Mother author Lady Colin Campbell alleges that the current Queen might not have been conceived - ahem - in the usual fashion. "It was well known in royal and aristocratic circles for years, that Elizabeth [the Queen Mother], how shall I put this delicately, preferred not to partake of certain aspects of married life, and so Queen Elizabeth II had to be conceived by artificial insemination." Well. We. Never.

B is for blue    

When Prince Charles was born, the fountain lights in Trafalgar Square were changed to blue. In keeping with this tradition, it was thought that Blue were booked to perform at the birth of the Royal baby. (Ok, that's not true.)

C is for competitive dad

It's reported that while a then-Princess Elizabeth was giving birth to Prince Charles, her husband Prince Phillip was playing squash.

D is for Diana

When he was a child, William told his mum, Princess Diana, that he wanted to become a policeman so he could look after her.
