Prince William's wife Kate gave birth to a boy on Monday the 22nd of July 2013, the couple's first child and the third in line to the British throne, heralding celebrations in London and messages of goodwill from across the world. It was another great day for Britishness, as well as a cause of celebration for all of the citizens of the Commonwealth, as well as the world over.
"We could not be happier," Prince William said in a brief statement, after he witnessed the birth of his son at 4:24 p.m. (11:24 a.m. ET) weighing 8 lbs 6 oz (3.8 kg) at an event that sparked an international media frenzy and the illumination of London landmarks in blue. Later on, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge named their baby HRH Prince George of Cambridge, full name George Alexander Louis.
Monday the 22nd of July was also officially the hottest day in the UK since July 2006 - with temperatures hitting more than 33.5 degrees Centigrade at Heathrow. The heat eventually gave way to thunderstorms and cooler temperatures over the coming days ending the longest heatwave for seven years. It was also the driest July since 2006 despite recent downpours.

The NAVJOT-SINGH.COM web blog is separate to this web site....Click blog, which may
not be visible in some
countries due to local

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
