The new royal baby girl is expected to live to 11 years older than her peers, based on the lifespan of her ancestors.

The princess, born this morning in the Lindo wing of St. Mary’s Hospital at 8:34am, is expected to live to the age of 94, according to Guardian datablogs.

According to the ONS, in London and the South East the life expectancy is 80 for males and 84 for females, home to both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

The baby girl, born 8lbs 3 oz this morning, is now the fourth in line to the throne, following Prince George and knocking Prince Harry down a place to fifth in line.

The royal baby’s life expectancy is higher for a number of reasons including access to superior healthcare, wealth and security.

For example, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can expect to live off a share of £365,384.61 per week, based on the annual income of the Duchy of Cornwall.

She will also have the Royalty Protection Branch of the Metropolitan Police Service overseeing her 24 hour security, more than UK national average can hope for.
