While you’ve surely heard the news somewhere else…

pexels-photo-929435The new royal baby has arrived! A name has not yet been announced yet, but history has been made as Princess Charlotte will maintain her pre-baby distance from the throne despite now having a little brother.

(Considering that A Queen from the North contains a teenage genderqueer court witch as supporting character, we work hard not to further contribute to the gender essentialism of this moment, however, it’s necessary to note this historical moment! As we get close to the release of the QFTN sequel, expect lots of posts about gender (and gender neutral) royal titles. There are plenty out there, but it’s tricky in English, even in a novel set in an alternate universe!)
