(Newser) – No, sorry, we don't have a name yet—but we can tell you that the royal baby has met his royal great-grandmother, known to you commoners as Queen Elizabeth. She and Prince Harry met the babe this morning at London's Kensington Palace, Us reports. Potential names were probably discussed during the half-hour visit, but no word yet on when the chosen moniker will be revealed.

As for Uncle Harry, his visit was a surprise since he's been on duty with the Royal Air Force. Aunt Pippa Middleton also popped over to Kensington Palace with her boyfriend last night to meet the heir to the throne, the Daily Mail reports. Today Prince William, Kate, and the baby were already on the road, Us reports: They left Kensington Palace for the Middletons' countryside Bucklebury home, where they spent the week before the birth and where Kate plans to stay for at least six weeks.

Although I personally don’t care much about this young child prince; I learned firsthand many years ago that the British take their royal monarchy very seriously. Back in the mid-eighties I was stationed in West Germany and we were supporting a joint NATO exercise at one of the major training areas. One night we had a big social at one of the clubs with our British counterparts; there was plenty of Germany beer, Jaegermiester, snapps, schnitzels,bratwurst, the works! Sometime during the evening one of our troops said something to the effect “F**k the Queen”. You should have seen the free for all that broke out. There was beer, blood and piss all over the place. One thing I do remember thinking was, that if a Brit had said anything against President Reagan I don’t think any of us Americans there would have given it a second thought and just brushed it off. Bottom line : Don’t F**k with the British Throne.
