    Default Royal baby born to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William

    The BBC announced at 8pm that a royal baby boy had been born at 16:24, GMT. The name is yet to be revealed. A formal bulletin is to arrive at Buckingham Palace in a few moments. Prime Minister David Cameron congratulates the couple. The Queen was present.

    EDIT: Bulletin has arrived. Baby and mother are doing well medically.

    Oh great, yet another privileged baby is born destined to reside over us all in the lap of luxury based on no merit or achievement whatsoever.

    The French had the right idea about what to do with their monarchy! ;)

    Congratulations for them! I still like my sister's baby better, but theirs is okay too.
    Rhonda: Okay, Curly, I admit it. I'm your secret admirer. And the truth is, no matter how hard I try and fight it, [reading off her hand] I'm really, really wild about you. In fact, I've fallen crazy in love. So what do you say? How does that make you feel?
    Curly: Give Daddy some sugar. (kiss)

    Congratulations, someone who isn't even 12 hours old is already more famous than we will ever be in our lifetimes, simply because he popped out of someone who got hitched to someone whose ancestor lobbed off somebody else's head.

    My mum was fixated on Sky News all day long and it was pretty funny to see what they were doing to try and fill the time as everyone waited. Some of the people they interviewed ranged from absolute idiots to pompous oaths. The reporters once even asked what the birthing suite will have in it, to which the reply was "a bed and chairs"....well, I certainly hope that Kate wasn't expected to stand up during all of it xD.

    There were also reports that Prince William is eligible for two weeks of paternity leave. If he does take it, it will be a bloody mockery to the system - like he really needs the money!

    In all honesty i do feel really bad for that new baby that was born. he is not going to have a normal life like North West. Because we all will have national and global front page, end of WW2 bold headlines for the Royal Baby's first step, word, tantrum, burp, ect,ect. As Disney and Nick have proved that jamming cameras into childrens faces constantly have been VERY detrimental to them. i do wish them all well but to me this whole thing is filed under "In other News..." because they are not my friends or family so it doesnt really apply to me. I just hope Hetalia doesnt get their hands on this...

    I am in total agreement. And besides, there are more important things to worry about than some baby that will one day be 'king'. And this reminds me of one episode of The Roast which covered the baby's life in advance including his first day at university. This should go to "in other news..." in my opinion though. So it is best to avoid the media for the next couple of days.

    I do agree that it's interesting how media the decides which news is more important than other news. I think that the attention on certain stories is even reflected on BMGf. This article already has about 7 replies to it, meanwhile the thread about the "Contaminated Lunches that Killed 22 Children in India" has 0 replies. Even though majority of the comments were more negative, it still managed to get more attention than some others.

    Must be an unpopular opinion, but I'm all here for Baby Cambridge. Go Royal Family!

    A town near mine, Carrickfergus, was so unbelievably happy (the couple are the Baron and Baroness of Carrickfergus)

    This baby really doesn't know how important he is.

    My gripe is that this is a big story - but it's a big story for Britain. Why should the U.S. really care beyond diplomatically acknowledging it? The reason we are a country is because we got away from having to deal with the British monarchy.

    I don't see what the big deal is. Yes, we fought for independence to escape the British Monarchy, but that is the past. Simply being excited about this isn't going to make the a monarchy magically rule America again. Frankly, it's nice to have some pleasant news for once, instead of the normal unpleasantries of news, even for a day. Some are acting like all other news is being utterly ignored.

    Also the babies name is George Alexander Louis:

    YES! I KNEW HE'D BE CALLED GEORGE! My sister owes me £10. :3

    The big deal is that one day he'll run the United Kingdom. No, the monarchy won't rule America when George comes to the throne, but this is still a big deal over here in the UK.

    But he won't "rule the country" he will live in a palace at the taxpayers expense having every whim catered to, despite doing nothing to deserve all this attention.

    The monarch has no influence they're just overly privileged. I'm 100% against hereditary privilege. America and France have the right idea!

    I think of a time in the future, when I tell my kids about the birth of the Prince and how I really didn't give a shit.
