Across the Channel we have our own royalty, and they have babies too!!  :D
Very true and especially relevant in view of my own Dutch ancestry, although, unfortunately, I don't think that I'm related to either Royal Families.

I think many years from now the name of this thread will be renamed to ‘Royal Brat’. :)
I suspect that your right John, maybe sooner than you think!

Considering Prince Harry's pelt a picture of an Orang Utan (maybe with a Nazi military cap for giggles) would have been more appropriate ;)
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Yes, there was a huge fuss of disapproval (justifiably I think) when Prince Harry turned up to a fancy dress party in a Nazi uniform. It did, however, inspire my possible favourite Private Eye cover:

In the universe of boring topics: babies/kids, and royalty/celebrities are at the very top of my list. Throw in some content about the Civil War, baseball, dogs, golf, and Star Wars, and you will have enough to put me into a coma for a decade.  :laugh:

Who will be the first clever dick to combine all of these into a single sentence??
