You really ought to learn how to spell before writing a message like this, darling. Also, was I supposed to care? Because I really don’t.

Savannah as she's grown has been looking more and more like Autumn, but she was the spitting image of Peter when she was a baby! Savannah is SO like Anne though! And Isla is the image of Peter as well, in my opinion of course! ♥x

who do you think svannah and isla phillips are looking like
Savannah is a good mix of Princess Anne and Autumn, I’d say - mainly Autumn (especially around the eyes). Isla almost is a carbon copy of Peter when he was a baby.
I too think that David is a likely secondary name and even a possible first name for a younger brother. Robert would be a decent secondary name, I just can’t see a King Robert (without immediately thinking ASOIAF). Albert isn’t very flattering, I agree (“King Albert” - qué horror!) Stephen of Blois was horrible (… no, I know he was a decent King, I’m just an avid Empress Matilda supporter and can’t make myself love Stephen). I’d really like another King Richard, it’s just one of the most regal names out there and it’s so handsome.
A Queen Mary III or a Queen Margaret would be amazing, and both names have such wonderful namesakes (Mary of Teck and Princess Margaret).
