    All the best to Royal Family today! Did find some hilarious tweets about the birth on HuffPo today. Give it a read if you want a good laugh!

    Hilarious? I'd say barely amusing, and this is not typical British understatement

    All the tweets I've seen are calling it the #royalfetus.

    EDIT: update, the Royal fetus is now a royal baby!

    The baby has dropped, it's a king. I guess you need to be English to appreciate.

    It is my understanding that there are many Brits who are not that crazy about the Royals.

    I'm gonna guess Charles since Diana was to be the name if it were a girl.

    I think it's fair to say that there are a great many of us who really don't give a monkey's.

    It's very exciting for those directly involved of course and I certainly don't begrudge them their happiness, but a backdrop of blanket television coverage and near hysteria from some really isn't necessary.

    Many congratulations to William and Kate and I hope the kid has a brilliant and long life. The news can finally focus on something else now.

    I'm angry at my finger for clicking me into this thread.

    It risks being chopped off, should it attempt any further clicks relating to the subject of this Royal Baby.

    Finger has been warned.

    And another. It's just another brat to live off our taxes and keep the tourists happy.

    Not likely to have anything else as he will be waited on hand and foot all of his life!

    If you watch the news, the last time it wasn't miserable was during the Olympics last year. We're British. It's our job to be miserable!

    A sports show announced 'Breaking, the news we've been waiting for...' I thought Fabregas had agreed to join Manchester United. :eek:

    Why does anyone care?

    I'm just glad Prince William waited two more months to knock her up because I was staying at a hotel across the street from St. Mary's Hospital at the end of May.

    I'm so happy about this! The Royal Family is absolutely one of the best things about the United Kingdom!

    Congratulations to them. Nice to know the 'succession' is secured for another generation.

    I class myself as a bit of a royalist, so this was quite a good day :eek:

    My reaction to this birth:

    [​IMG]

    I loved Yahoo's article titled "Middleton to give birth. What to expect."

    Ummm a baby? :eek::confused:

    Sorry if I offend any Brits, but to be fair, I don't even care about famous births of U.S. folks.

    So all it takes to be a royal baby is to be born a prince/princess? What is this weak sauce stuff?

    Back in my day, a prince had the strength and bravery to slaying a fire breathing dragon and the charisma to convince a princess to kiss him while in frog form. I don't see Chucky, Willy, or Harry doing any of that. Truly the Blue Blood has been watered down over the years.

    Princesses back in the day were so noble, they could pee through a dozen mattresses. Or was it feel a pee through a dozen mattress?

    Yes sir, back in my days Royalty were higher bred than a hilltop bakery.

    Should I be so presumptious as to suggest where you could place said finger?

    KGB:D
