A note tonight about the remaining british empire and here it is. We thought you might want to see it again. In addition to the united kingdom there are 15 commonwealths dotting the globe. Tonight in one new zealand, a tower awash in blue and the fountain in trafalgar square, lit up with the colors of the british flag and storks were welcoming the baby boy. Also tonight, that boy, of course is changing the royal line of succession, leaping in front of uncle harry. Now that william has a new baby, how does the line of succession run? After the new baby it's prince harry in line and then prince andrew next. And after him, his two daughters with sarah ferguson. They jumped ahead of uncle edward and of course aunt anne. By the way, eventually, after anne, all the way down in line, there are 30 other royals, all ready for the throne, ending with the queen's first cousin. Now I want to bring in patrick jephson former chief of staff to prince says diana. All day long we've been looking back at this time capsule. To everyone saying it's strange to be born into a predetermined life in the year 2013, you say? Well, it's strange if you are used to the lives of celebrities for example. There is this tendency to treat the royal family, particularly on occasions like this, as some kind of branch of the entertainment citindustry. This little baby is growing up to a life like no other of service, duty, of sacrifice. This is the first half commoner to be the heir of the throne, the first ever? Pretty much. You have to go back at least 350 years before you get anything comparable. Yes, this is what makes this prince different from all recent princes. There will always be another home to visit. There will be involved grandparents. There will be an extended family of middleton's who didn't grow up in this rare fewed strong royal world. I keep thinking of princess diana who you knew so well. What did you see her do with her own babies that stays with you the most? You see these pictures of william and harry and she thought them that their lives were going to be surrounded by people who were strangers. She said rather point yently to me, most parents say to their children, don't talk to strangers. I have to say to my children every day, you have to talk to strangers and you will for the rest of your lives. Patrick jephson, thank you so much.
