ICYMI, the royal baby has arrived.

On April 23, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child — a second son — at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

While the world is still waiting to find out what the royal couple have chosen to name their new arrival, there are other nuggets of information we can glean from the newborn’s astrological chart.

The new prince was born on April 23, 2018 at 11:01 am in London, a time and date which astrologer and author Sally Kirkman believes is no coincidence.

“At first glance, the new addition to the royal family has the right credentials to fit in and join one of the most famous families in the world,” Kirkman tells Yahoo Style UK.

“Baby number three is a little boy who was born only two days after his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth ll’s actual birthday (April 21), which is a lovely birthday present for her.”

Like the Queen, and his elder sister, Princess Charlotte, the new royal is a Sun Taurus, which according to Kirkman is a steady earth sign — reliable and nurturing, persistent, and stubborn.

The newborn’s timely arrival means that everyone in his immediate family are earth and water signs, which Kirkman says go well together.

“William and Prince George are both Sun Cancer, an emotional and sensitive water sign,” she explains. “Princess Diana was a Sun Cancer too. Kate is a Sun Capricorn, a traditional and conservative earth sign, and William and Kate now have two more earth sign children, Sun Taurus Charlotte and baby no. 3.”

The new baby was also born with the Moon in Leo, the royal sign.

“This means he’s likely to get on well with his new aunt-to-be, Meghan Markle, as her Sun Leo sits close to his Moon Leo,” Kirkman predicts.

“Born a month before her wedding to Prince Harry, this is likely to create a special bond between them.”

Kirkman says the timing of the baby’s birth suggests he is born to shine bright, as the Moon in Leo likes to be in the spotlight.

“As the Moon was next to the karmic north node in Leo on the day of his birth, he’s likely to feel a strong pull of destiny and will need to find his stage to perform on,” she says.

Kirkman says that basic astrology indicates that the new baby will slot into the conventional family values of his parents.

But a deeper look into the astrology reveals that the new royal could also show similar characteristics to that of Markle and his uncle.

“The new baby continues this modern theme,” she says. “This is because Uranus, the unconventional planet, was next to the Sun in Taurus when he was born. Traditionally, Sun Taurus doesn’t like change whereas Uranus is the planet of change and all things new and innovative.”

Another factor to take into consideration is the fact that the new baby was born with Chiron at 0 degrees Aries on his Midheaven, the pinnacle of the birth chart and linked to his vocation.

“This gives him the potential of being a maverick, a healer, or teacher,” Kirkman reveals.

She concludes that the current astrology for the newborn is exciting and unpredictable, with his birth chart including a progressive and distinctive hallmark.

“On the surface, he’s going to fit in perfectly with his family,” she says. “His personal destiny, however, may see him treading a more unusual path.”
