    Boring? Boring? This can bring us months of mirth if we approach it in the right way; which is to say, focus on the response and the attention rather than on the couple. :lol:

    I wonder if Harry is pissed that he's now farther away in the line of succession...

    well I for one am happy for them. But then I can remember when they announced Diana was pregnant with William.

    I hope she gets past this difficult stage quickly.

    Yes, I can't stand that "We are pregnant" business either. Just too, too twee.

    They've already lost their Empire and decimalized their currency. Abolish the monarchy? What would you have them do next -- drive on the right side of the road?

    You know extreme morning sickness can be a sign of twins.

    I bet the fevered speculation articles are already written! Heck they probably wrote them when William hit puberty, they just fill in the name.

    It's Princess Catherine. I'm not a royalist but if you're going to give her a title, do it properly.

    This is great news for them, assuming they wanted children. I can't imagine what the pressure must be like.

    Princess is a title usually conveyed by birth, rather than marriage. As Prince William's wife she's most formally refered to as Princess William, failing that she's the Duchess of Cambridge or Countess of Strathearn in Scotland.

    Well especially for Kate who would have had to have undergone various examinations to make sure she could actually provide children before the wedding - it's nice that she's pretty and can smile and stuff but her main function is broodmare.

    Still at least it's not like the old days where the Home Secretary
    would be present at the birth, I think Prince Anna's birth was the last one a HS attended :wtf:

    I think they did away with the pre-marriage medical checks after Diana. It's not as though he's going to say no I'm not going to marry her, is it?

    Does he have that level of choice? That has never been clear.

    They do now. They didn't in his dad's day. That's why the second in line to the throne married a commoner. They're allowed to marry whoever they want now. His father had to marry who he was told to marry and look how well that turned out. Ergo it stands to reason it was pointless to do any medical checks beforehand, not least because Diana's boys would have told the establishment to fuck off.

    Diana's boys are the establishment.

    That's a load of bollocks. Princess Diana was never called Princess Charles.
