had a nice sleep but I got up for work and I'm filled with dread because I just realised we have 3 male heirs to the throne! I fully expect Harry to take the baby prisoner and rouse the northern armies and make a massive power play for the throne.

‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
This is what happens when you have a monarchy.
The Machiavellian scheming, the intrigue, the fighting, the full frontal nudity.
Kinda like our 2000 Presidential election.
Oh, well, it's all pretty irrelevant since Queen Liz will probably out live them all.
No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
The British populace have become wary of the term "Special Relationship" which the papers keep going on about but this doesn't mean a dislike for America / Americans. Like you though, I can understand why the birth is important here - symbolically, economically and politically; I just don't "get" why it's such big news in the US.US historians will tell you that the fascination with the royals is nothing new. The coronation of Queen Victoria, for instance, was one of the great news events of its day.
What is new is the marriage of British regal tradition with American celebrity culture - a union which came to be crystallised in 1985 when Princess Diana danced with John Travolta at a White House state dinner.
Princess Diana became Vanity Fair magazine's favourite cover girl. Her death was as much an emotional event for many Americans as it was for grieving Britons.
It could be that among some ordinary Americans the old "Special Relationship" still has resonance - despite the reality in politics.
I think its time them monarchs get j.....o.....b.....s.
William have any skillz? Sure Lizzy could at least work a pole every now and again.
The prince who is the lucky father is in the army, the royal airforce.
Some others work in a bank, professors at universities and many more.
Members of the royal family are well accomplished individuals.
