Royal babies are incredibly important. There are some instances when great hope has been raised by the arrival of a new member of the royal family. One famous instance was the birth, finally, of a son to Henry VIII, guaranteeing the continuation of the Tudor dynasty. It was celebrated in grand style at Hampton Court Palace with a lavish christening. The fact that one queen had been deposed, another lost her head and the religion of the country changed in order for him to be born made the celebrations, and the relief at his birth, even greater.
