...................... Just a surfeit of Tourists and an OTT Media response.

Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their Kinglet :)

I know I'll never see this child as monarch, but I wonder, given the longevity of the present Queen and her mother before her, will I even get to see a coronation? Maybe Charles - but I would have liked to see William crowned, but it seems unlikely.
Anyway, congrats to Billy and Kate on your new son.

Seems a great shame now that due to longevity, no monarch is likely to take the throne until they are at least into their 60s and possibly 70s, perhaps we need to consider voluntary abdication/retirement.

There is always that and it probably isn't out of the question, nobody knows what Charles has in his mind, he may prefer the easy life and pass on the crown to his son.

A new low was reached in the pathetic fawning coverage yesterday when the Beeb announced katies hairdresser had just arrived.


Looks like the backlash against the coverage has fianlly and somewhat belatedly started though

Yes, I think the 24 hour "Nothing to say - what about you?" "Yes" "No" "Maybe" approach to such News actually detracts from the episode.

Aye - nothing on the news about the earthquakes in New Zealand & China during the whole tawdry episode, which were just a tad more important .
