The Royal Baby Cometh

Any new addition to a family is a truly magical moment, but surely it should, for a brief time at least, be a private moment.

Of course, William enjoys the trapping of wealth and privilege that come with being part of 'the firm' and Kate?, well she knew what she was getting herself into.

There is a scene in the film The Kings Speech when Colin Firth played by King George returns from a meeting with Parliament that has just ratified his accession to the throne (to succeed his spine less brother) and when Helena Bonham-Carter asks; 'Well?'

He nods a nod that says 'BbbBugger it, I'm gonna be KKKK-ing'

but before he spits those words out he glances, for a split second, at his eldest daughter with a 'What have I got you into' look.

William and Kate must be allowed time, a week or a month with THEIR first baby, a chance to recover, reflect and announce the name George (12-1 at William Hill). The Duchess of Cambridge is now a mother and needs to bond, worry and fuss over her new gift like the millions of mothers before her. When that little hand grabs her, or William's, finger, he isn't a Prince or future King. Simply their little boy.

So let's back off, give them time and space before he becomes the most photographed little boy in history. We need a distraction, maybe a Brit could win Wimbledon or, dare I say it, England retain the Ashes.....maybe its tIme for Aunty Pippa to dust that dress off and sashay down the Kings Road.
