Royal Profile: James Alexander Philip Theo, Viscount Severn

James Alexander Philip Theo Mountbatten-Windsor, Viscount Severn  was born via Cesarean section on 17 December 2007, the second child and only son of The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex & Sophie, The Countess of Wessex. He has one older sister, Lady Louise. His godparents were:
  • Denise Poulton ( a friend of his parents)
  • Jeanye Irwin (a former American flatmate of his mother's)
  • Alastair Bruce (a Scots Guard Falklands veteran, who is a friend of his mother's)
  • Duncan Bullivant 
  • Tom Hill
At only a few weeks old, he was admitted to Great Ormond Street Hospital for what Buckingham Palace called a "minor allergic reaction".

It is believed that he attends St. George's School, Windsor Castle, like his elder sister, where he should be in  his 1st year at the school. 

Because he is so young, and so far down in the line of succession, he rarely makes public appearances or performs public duties. In 2009, he attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show. In 2010, he attended the family's 10-day cruise to celebrate the 50th birthday of Prince Andrew and 60th birthday of Princess Anne. However, this summer he made several appearances, including attending the Thames River Pagent with his family in the honor of his grandmother and several London 2012 Olympic events including several Paralympic events.
