As the month comes to an end with yet another monarchical milestone, let's enjoy the six royal birthdays that rule in April.

The Cambridge Royal Wedding Album

It's the seventh wedding anniversary of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William Arthur Philip Louis married Catherine Elizabeth Middleton on April 29th 2011 at Westminster Abbey but then you probably knew that bit already. In fact, we all feel like we know every second of this spectacular royal day out as we've looked at it so often but that doesn't mean we can't go back in again and enjoy the photos all over again. As William and Kate celebrate their copper anniversary with brand new baby Prince Louis to join the party, here's a look back at the Cambridge Royal Wedding Album....

Ahead of THE royal wedding (Megs and Haz in case you've been under a rock for the last year or so), there is a lot to get excited about. The flowers, the tiara, the bridesmaids, the cake. Oh, and the dress. Let's drop the dignified front and cut to the chase. We all want to know what Meghan Markle will be wearing when she steps into St. George's, Windsor to wed her handsome prince. The bride to be will keep us guessing until the last moment, and because it's the wedding anniversary of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, let's visit Kate's dress one more time. The dress that Kate Middleton wore on the day she married her prince and became HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is already a part of royal history. As we wait for Meghan to add her style choice to the history books, here's a look back at what Kate wore, a classic among the Windsor Wedding Dresses.

As he stands at the altar on May 19th, waiting for his bride, Harry will have at his side the man who has been at his side from the get go. Brothers and Best Men.

Meet Baby Cambridge

Here he is. The new fifth in line to the throne has gone home to Kensington Palace in the arms of his proud mother just hours after his birth. The littlest prince in the House of Windsor was born at 11.01 this morning and just before 6 this evening he began his big adventure into the world with mum and dad. The baby boy slept through his first photocall before heading off to see his brother and sister, George and Charlotte, who had already popped in to meet him. Let's enjoy our first glimpses of Baby Cambridge and isn't he lovely?

Hooray for the Queen

There were ukeleles, royal debuts and yet another outing for the Mummy joke. Welcome to the celebrations for the Queen's 92nd birthday. HM had a night of music at the Royal Albert Hall to mark her latest milestone and it seems that just about everyone wanted to celebrate with her.
