Not much to Americans, but I guess a lot to many Brits.

I still don't understand the fascination with the Royals, despite spending the last six years in a place where we drive on the left and take the lift up to the 7th storey of the car park.

In the case of the Duchess of Cambridge, it's the fairytale aspect of it. Y'know, boy meets girl, boy and girl falls in love, boy turns out to be an heir to throne (okay, so in this case, noone in the UK could possibly be in doubt as to who William was...).

We had the same thing over here, when our Crown Prince and his future wife met each other in a bar in Sydney during the 2000 Olympics. She didn't know for that he was the heir to one of the oldest monarchies around, until one of her friends asked the timeless question: "Do you know who these people are?!"

Poor woman, it must be so hard having to live her every moment in the public eye in the normal run of things, but to have hyperemesis in both pregnancies on top must be hell. No amount of awareness of what she was getting herself into could have prepared her for this; I wish the press would leave them alone a bit.

She could be a grifter, out to take that family for everything, including the throne. I must have seen that happen a dozen times.

And that means what?

It means the Shapeshifter Reptilian Dynasty of Queen E-Lizard-Breath is guaranteed for another generation! Can't wait to see what form this alien hybrid will take.

Oh...I forgot. This isn't the Brit Royalty conspiracy forum.

:lol: to Wavey Davey.

I think this is very nice news. While I'm not much on British royalty, William and Kate seem like a nice young couple, well-grounded, and keeping things in perspective. I wish the Duchess a speedy path to a less difficult pregnancy, and best wishes for the health of their coming child.

Well why not? I think she's an attractive young woman. She could gain a pound stone or two, but I'm from another generation.

And that means what?

It means that in a few month's time, Catherine will have completed her official duties as consort to the future monarch. She will have delivered both an heir and a spare. After that it's all charity events and hand-waving.



What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.

And tiara events. Liz has mighty deep vaults.

Y'know what? MONKEY BUTT!

Seriously, though, I get the impression that they really love each other. I hope that's true and I hope it holds up. It may be Pollyanna of me, but it would be nice if there was a happily ever after in there somewhere.

I don't think I would normally have considered this a breaking story. But I was up early and suddenly at ~5:30 a.m. EDT a dozen news alerts started going off on my tablet. I figured I'd post it here.
