Yeah so despite the fact that we actually went to the trouble of declaring war on England to get away from their monarchy, the royal baby was still all over the mf news on every station all bloody day on Monday.
I realize that this is a fun news story, but the fun was kind of destroyed by the non-stop news coverage.
After reading some of the snippets of stories from royal births past, I looked into England's whole tradition of Officially announcing the birth of the next king or queen. The whole thing with the signed note from the doctor and the notice outside the palace seems woefully boring.
Like seriously, if *I* was queen and had just birthed my heir to the throne, you better freaking believe I'd be sending the king out to the balcony where he could raise the baby up Lion King style, amidst cheers from the adoring crowd of my subjects.
There would be cannons and church bells to announce the baby's arrival. Holidays declared in his name (and mine), and feasting for a week.
Not a boring little sign on the bloody door.
