It’s just been announced that Prince William and his wife Princess Kate are expecting a baby, probably around June. She hasn’t been pregnant for as long as 12 weeks yet, so they were not planning on making an announcement quite yet. The rumours began several months ago, though, when Kate declined a glass of champagne and sipped water instead.
But the news is out because Kate was taken to the hospital this afternoon with a type of very acute morning sickness that sometimes indicates twins. Even the Queen wasn’t told Kate was pregnant until this morning.
The media is going mad.
The news has displaced the big uproar about controlling the press which began when the Murdoch paper was discovered to be hacking into phones like they were running a telephone exchange. Everybody from royalty to the family of murder victims.
It’s nice to have something to celebrate.
