I would really love to be in England right now. No doubt people are dancing in the streets–literally. As we all know, the former Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a healthy baby boy today. The announcement appeared on the traditional easel just inside the gates of Buckingham Palace. No doubt we’ll be inundated with trivia–I’m just waiting to hear that the curlicued easel dates back to Victorian times.
For some reason, every American I’ve spoken to since the news came out was hoping for a girl. Maybe we were all hoping the newly-passed laws that would have allowed a princess to inherit the throne even if subsequent children were boys would take effect. No matter. Let’s all rejoice with the Royal Family!
