William was born on 21 June 1982 at St. Mary’s Hospital, London, as the first child of Charles, Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. Diana and Charles married on 29 July 1981. Although the couple had two previous sons, Prince Harry and Prince Edward, they struggled to conceive a daughter.
For this reason, the media had been speculating that they would be “blessed” with a daughter and “God’s gift” to the monarchy. Diana was quoted as saying: “A girl, goodness me, a girl would be wonderful. My poor husband, he’d have his arms full.” On the first day of Prince William’s life, the Queen, Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth II were present. From an early age, William was given an “extensive royal education.”
