    Why is everyone so obsessed with celebrities and their children? This kind of stuff hits the news before stuff like plane crashes! What happened to society?

    Obviously, not everyone is. Even in this thread, the OP seems to be the only one who actually cares.

    I already cringe because I have to act like I care when my gf brings it up...whoop-de-fucking-doo.

    Why do you have to act like you care? If my fiancee was excited (which he isn't!) I wouldn't act like I cared.

    Being a Canadian, I already have more than my healthy dosage of hating & resenting that ridiculous and equally outdated so-called British royalty, monarchy, etc., so to say I could not possibly give less of a shit about Prince Balding's new offspring would be a serious understatement. Just please keep the little f*cker's mug off our money. It's bad enough that we still have to see that haggerred shriveled old thing they call "the Queen" on it.

    My sister was talking about this last night and saying how great it was. My parents didn't give two craps about it and proceeded to tell her to shut the fuck up.

    So, yeah, kinda sucks to be you if you have to act like you care.

    I gotta be honest here... I thought she already had the baby a couple weeks ago. That's how little attention I'm paying to this.

    I absolutely love the Royal family but all this attention over the baby is a bit over the top, some of the media were apparently setting up outside the hospital a month ago, really? Is that necessary? It's a baby, it's not going to give interviews or wave or anything, hell, it's probably going to cry like crazy when they step out of the hospital into a screaming crowd. I kinda wish that they'd snuck off to a different hospital, that would have been amusing. Although I am loving the live coverage
    "we now go to our live coverage outside St Mary's hospital..."
    *cuts to view of hospital looking the exact same as it did 5 bloody hours ago because it's basically a wall and nothing's happening*
    "has the baby arrived yet?"
    "no"
    "ok, here's an interview with random people because we need to spin this put"

    Also, if the baby's a boy, it needs to be called Arthur. Please?

    I wish I was super rich and can give birth in a luxurious place with lots of mid wives there for me. Watch, I'll be giving birth in a potato patch. Or a cabbage patch.

    It's a boy!

    Somewhat on a tangent, I care.

    Seriously I do. The coverage of the British Royal family is a bit OTT, but in a sense it is justified. They are massively rich, they represent tradition and history. They bring in tourism money. I'm not going to go on about it but I feel they contribute more then they take.

    On another note Harry is a fucking legend.

    They should call him Predaking or Poseidon.
