Oh my gosh, Prince William and Princess Kate are expecting their first bundle of joy. Palace officials announced the pregnancy yesterday. The child, whether male or female, will be the heir to the throne. He or she will fall third in line behind Prince Charles of Wales, the oldest child of Queen Elizabeth II and their father, Duke of Cambridge Prince William who is Charles’ first born son. Prince Harry of Wales, William’s younger brother, will have to take a seat behind the royal baby and wait his turn as he is demoted to the fourth in the line of succession.
Kate’s stomach is already being referred to as the “royal bump” and has served to bump the credibility of magazines that have prophesized the conception of this child for months.
News of the pregnancy seems to reflect worldwide happiness of the announcement, but no news outlet seems to have interviewed the following of women who wear a Prince William T-shirt under all of their clothing. First Kate Middleton gets to fall and love and marry a prince, then she gets to bear an heir to the British throne? As if the royal wedding wasn’t enough to make ladies worldwide swoon, now there is a royal baby in the mix.
