    Why would all at Buck House be disappointed at the arrival of a future Queen? We kind of have a Queen on the throne right now, and she's done a pretty good (and looong) job.
    I was actually joking about that part, but people seem to have taken it seriously. Of course the Queen has done a marvellous job and is in many ways a marvel herself. Personally I hope it is a girl and they call her 'Elizabeth'.

    I'm just hoping the baby's ginger...
    It probably won't be ginger though...

    It's pretty funny to see people make a big deal out of people who are choosing to make a big deal out of it (if that makes any sense )

    If people want to celebrate the arrival of a royal baby let them. The media are only focusing on it so much because they know it'll sell.

    Other than the fact that I hope they are happy with their new baby, I otherwise really couldn't care less about whether it's a boy or girl , or what name they'll call it or whether it will look more like Kate or William.

    From the voting so far, I'm astonished how little TSRians seem to care about this most noble of babies. Are we a cynical community? I do hope not.

    Wouldn't it be great if they televised the first royal baby bathtime?! :bath:

    And the first Royal Baby dribble?? The first Royal Baby poopoos? The first Royal Baby sickie? The possibilities for excessively maximised TV coverage (in HD, using 24 cameras - also in 3D) are literally endless.

    They could make a reality show - A year in the life of the new royal - follow it's first year of life and stuff. It would be so nice to get to see not only the lifestyle of the royals, but also how Will and Kate cope with it. Better than TOWIE any day!

    In fairness, I'd be quite interested if Kate gave birth to an alien. Or a shape-shifting reptilian.
    Goddamn you beat me to it.I rather imagine it to be like the birth scene from the first "Men in Black" movie.

    To be fair it's pretty hard to **** up sitting on a throne, living in palaces, and shaking hands with random people every so often.

    Well, like everyone on the interweb, they must also be out there in real life. It's just harder to summon up the courage to protest publicly, given the levels of hysteria around this kind of thing and the police state surveillance.
