Obviously, everyone in the world instantly now knows this fact – thanks social media. So, what what to say about it?
How entertaining! I like baby news and prince / princess fairytales as much as the next person. I like pretty pictures and following with sometimes-rapt attention the lives of people who are far more privileged than myself. And believe me, I’ll follow it…if for no other reason than the fact that I owe the royal pair. They helped my grandmother understand that living together before you were married didn’t mean the loss of my honor / end of my life.
I’m a little weirded out! What’s this fascination with famous people’s procreation? Fantasy wrapped up in a pretty media package? Is it the elevation of the quotidian? (Normal couples have babies every day…but so do Royal People!) Does it allow us to experience all the good things about pregnancy (Photoshopping, designer maternity clothes, royal trust funds) without any of the bad (financial strain, sleeplessness, tummy flab). Living vicariously through the Dutchess of Cambridge = pretty fun.
