    Well, good for them, but I'm more concerned about how we'll survive the next for years under Barry Sottero.

      Monkey Business: actually, the whole United States, and indeed, the civilized world, lost. You Obama worshippers are just too stupid to figure it out...but I think most of you will be smarter by 2016. I just hope it isn't too late.

    The U.S. has its own 'royal' family residing in the White House .. Thank goodness they are past the procreating age!

      Don't be so sure. Some people will do anything for adoration. These days with surrogates, people can have children pretty late in the game. I wouldn't put anything past the Obamas.

      Congratulations to Kate and Will. I'm not a Royal watcher per se but I did watch the wedding and I love babies. It's just unfortunate that poor kid will be born into a completely predetermined life – what I would consider a life in prison.

    The haters will hate (since they have nothing else in life to do), but millions of people are happy to hear the news and wish them the best. I hope it is a little girl who looks like Diana!!

      Yes, the millions of mind warped people fantasizing over people who don't do anything except take British tax money and wave back at you.

      Wow, that kid will have enough problems finding its own identity and creating a life for him/herself. To look like a much beloved, tragic, dead grandmother who you will only ever know in pictures is a lot for a child.

      I hope these two find a way to let the child live the simple life they've been trying to etch out for themselves so far. Princess Diana did seem to do that for her kids. Considering their lives, they don't seem nearly as stuffy as the Charles generation. Maybe it's a good thing the family members live so long. By the time Charles takes over then passes to Will, the child may have gotten a taste of some sort of normalcy – let's hope.

    This will be great for Harry – he won't have to be 'the spare' anymore which will free him up for more drunken partying.

    I am so happy for them. That's nice. As for the comment about morning sickness and birthing...she has acute morning sickness..when that happens, you can't even hold down water. Which means she needs and IV and nutrition....because she is vomiting non stop. I am sure at this point, she will greet the birthing process with relief.

    Oh good. This just ensures another generation of an antiquated practice that only benefits the "royal" family. Wake up Britain. Join the 21st century.
