The 'unusual' life of a royal baby

23 July 2013 Last updated at 09:54 BST

What kind of a life is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby boy going to have?

It is a life of privilege but in the past for a royal baby it has also been a life of some oddness - formal duty and protocol intervening quite early in normal family life.

The Today programme's Nicola Stanbridge reports.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 23 July 2013.
