I know! I plan to boycott all major forms of news for the next week because I don't want to hear about it. Though they'll probably be talking about the royal baby for the rest of our lives.

I understand why the media follows the queen and such. It's very traditional. Yes, the queen may not have as much power as in the past, she's pretty much just a poster child to England. But I think the princess having an heir to the throne is a helluva lot more newsworthy than what Angelina Jolie had for breakfast, which apparently affects everybody. Boycott what you want, but in my opinion this is something actually worth being followed compared to the shit they sell in magazines and post on the web.

Totally agree with you 30. The heir to the throne is much more newsworthy than Kim kardashians baby. I still don't care, but a royal is definitely more important than a kartrashian.

It's their job to stop the Prime Minister getting a swollen head, by being above them in the social pecking order. Just look like Thatcher was like: can you imagine if the bloody woman had been President? Or Blair, for that matter...

Shouldn't that be the job of the media and citizens? I mean lets be fair now, who was there to keep king George III in check when he decided to colonize half the world and slowly begin to lose it by being arrogant? What about king John?

I feel like a lot of you are assuming too much. (In case this is a response to #90 I'm sorry, my phone is weird.) I don't give a shit about the royal baby, and I didn't give a shit about Kim K's kid either. Who genuinely cares?

It's getting all this specialist health care, money, fame and attention simply because it is born in the right place at the right time. I don't see why this baby is any more interesting than the thousands of other babies born today. And to think it will be 'future king' (if the monarchy even lasts that long) is just ridiculous. It's done nothing and already it is entitled to rule this country. Vile.

I can't imagine what it's like to be excited about a future monarch being born. It's nice to have some good news I suppose? It's all over the news here too though and it doesn't really affect us at all. Ah well, congrats to them both anyway :)

Don't forget that once the news settles down about it being born, the news coverage will dramatically increase again when they think of a name...that could be a few weeks.... -.- **Groan**

Right, this is down on the third page, but I'm fucking AMAZED noone has said anything about it yet. Maybe the world media is going on and on about the royal baby because it's a happy piece of new for once? Yes it's not much different to the dozens of other babies that would have been born on the same say but the Royal family is known worldwide, and both watched and followed worldwide. Sorry I'm being ignorant. Everyone forget about the Royal baby and let's read/watch/hear about how there's more uprising in Egypt, the worldwide economy continuing to crash, more wars in the middle east, more people dying of natural disasters, how wide open Snooki's vagina really is, how much money the Paris Hilton sex tape has made. Lighten the fuck up people.

If if a princess has octuplets, who's the heir? Usually the "eldest twin" (oxymoron) is the first to pop out, but Octoprincess has to have a c-section, so all our little hypothetical heirs and heiresses are "born" more or less simultaneously, so who gets the crown when they grow up?

I saw them and just thought 'poor Kate' (and I don't normally give a damn about the royals). Can you imagine going through the pain and exhaustion of childbirth, being all hormoned up and then having to get through crowds of cheering idiots, flashing cameras, etc. before you've even got back to your own bed in your own home? Tbh I think it's just selfish. If they really cared they'd leave it alone till the official announcement later on.

^ Nope, sorry. Visit us before you make assumptions. The US media actually does report virtually all significant world events, they just don't keep up with it to its fullest extent. Ironically, a major American event happened on the exact same day (only affecting us though); the US stock market reached record highs. Most Americans don't know that though.

In fact, CNN is still reporting the royal baby. I wonder how long they can carry this on before they are forced to mention the deadly ship sinking in Indonesia or World Youth Day in Argentina. Even BBC doesn't obsesse over dumb shit like this happening in their own country.

I feel you. They talk about it on the news about it sometimes in the US or I'll see it on magazines. They talked about the royal wedding for a long time and I was like "I don't care. They are not the only ones who got married and it's not gonna change my life so why should we care?"

51, I'm pretty sure nothing actually happened as a result of the Kony thing, aside from everyone with a brain getting annoyed with the hipster cunts who spammed "#KONY2012" everywhere online. Nobody was helped by it, I'm sure. In fact, I'm sure a few people probably killed themselves over the inanity of it all.

The point most likely is that there are lots of things going on in the world that don't affect you directly that you may care about. If you don't care about the royals, change the TV/radio station or stop reading the article. Other than via the media, I've not had anyone talk to me about it.

51, I just stated that after a while people get tired of hearing the same thing over and over and after a while nobody will care. Nobody brought up Kony except you. So what the "royal" couple got married. Every day people get married and you don't see the media being talked about every day for a couple months. My sister got married a year ago and she wasn't on the news. Now the "royal" couple is having a child. And once again they are on the news. I had a son 3 years ago and my baby wasn't on the news. My point is, that they are no different than you or me and they really don't need the world to know that they got married or are having a child. I'm in America and them having a child isn't going to affect my life in any way and while I'm happy for them to a degree, after a while I'm not going to care anymore. In all honesty I don't really care much now because like I said they are no different than us. The only thing is that they have a lot of money. Other than that they are just regular people so there is no need to make the whole world know they just got married or are expecting or even that they are royal. We all have our own issues and lives to live. The whole world doesn't need to focus their lives on the Royal" family just because they are going to be parents. Eventually people are going to get sick of hearing about how the royal family did this or that and not care because we are going to be focused on our own lives. I for one don't care if they are traveling or a expecting because they are just people and its not gonna affect how I live over here, so they don't need everyone knowing their family business. I'm sure they are going to be like certain celebrities over here who want the attention then complain that they have no privacy with there lives. It's just annoying and nobody is going to care after a while. Ok end rant/sorry everyone for the long paragraph.
