Royal baby girl – level 2

07-05-2015 07:00

The Duchess of Cambridge was late in giving birth to her second baby, a girl, so she went to hospital on May 2nd at 6 AM. Later that morning, she gave birth to the princess. The girl weighed 3.71 kilograms and will be fourth in line to be a queen, but she does not yet have a name.

A man announced the birth in a traditional way while dressed in traditional clothing.

The Royal Family, as well as fans, was delighted about the news. The fans danced and sang to show their excitement.

Difficult words: announce (to tell a lot of people), to be delighted (to be very happy), excitement (happiness).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
