The birth of a new royal princess, the first for decades, has brought a smile to millions of people who need a good news story to lift their spirits in these times of uncertainty.
The new princess will bring joy to her parents and to their wider family, and not least to the Queen, who at 89 will be welcoming this tiny and precious newcomer to the royal family.
The name for the new princess will be seized upon for analysis by many people, but most important of all is the fact that the new baby and her mother are both well. We wish her health and happiness in the years to come.
