All hail the future king
Did you buy into all the royal baby hype?
So the whole of the world, well most of it anyway, are understandably agog with the news of the arrival of Will and Kate’s little bundle of joy. You can’t help but go ahhhh or ooooh when seeing Will load his new son into the car for the first time, or when he told the media he had already changed Prince George Alexander Louis’ bottom. It’s box-office gold, and we lowly peasants are of course lapping it up.

Some of the people interviewed who were standing around the hospital for days waiting for baba’s arrival, were quite forthright and unabashed about their royal-loving views. The thing is, it’s in our nature to want to be a part of something good and in this case adorably cute. You have to be a beastly royal-basher or a cold hearted republican not to share in the obvious joy and love shown by the newest royal parents.

Nothing new though, mankind has been giving birth from the first time Mr Neanderthal raised a knowing eyebrow at Mrs Neanderthal. No doubt that Kate and Will shall be getting the best advice on how to best execute their new parental duties. I’m sure we all wish them well.

I generally can’t stand reality TV shows, especially the kind of crap that makes people famous for being famous. However, I would unashamedly be stuck to the telly if someone did a reality show on how these two regal parents raised their little monkey. I’d wager that it’d be the highest viewed show ever. Come on BBC, make a plan!

No doubt the world’s media will keep us up to date with daily reports on the little mite’s every phase of development. We’ll be informed of what he is being fed, what he’s poop looks like, how he sleeps and for how long, what he is wearing, what presents he’s received from his royal uncles and aunties. My guess is that uncle Harry has already forked out a small fortune on soldier toys.

And we peasants will lap honey, because we do love a feel good story don’t we?
