OH BABY

Buckingham Palace Confirms Kate Middleton Is Pregnant

The most anticipated pregnancy since Mary popped a squat in a manger has been confirmed: Kate Middleton is pregnant with the future heir to the British throne, St. James Palace announced.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the palace said in a statement today. “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

The duchess, wife to Prince William, was admitted to the hospital today with acute morning sickness. “As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter,” a statement said.

The baby will be the queen’s third great-grandchild, but Parliament must still amend the current law of succession to ensure that the first-born child of either gender can take the throne.

      Let’s see…that puts it on track to be born about June? Just in time for the summer solstice. How convenient.

      Good for her. But unless she’s been hiding her true identity as a transwoman who entered a lavender marriage with a balding gay prince, I don’t see why it’s relevant to Queerty’s theme.

      Oh joy. Never understood the American fascination with our inbred Germanic fascist sympathising royalty, must be because they are told these people exude class and very few of the elite in America have any class whatsoever.

      I think I answered my own complaint.

      Oh how very clever. Oh no, sorry, I mean how very stupid and predictably ‘right on’ and Lefty. You were the twat who was sticking up for Peter Tatchell recently, weren’t you? figures.
      Why don’t you get an original opinion, rather than follow than those of all your smug idiot friends?
      You may not be old enough to remember, but William’s mother was one of the first high-profile people to publically embrace (quite literally) victims of AIDS, and treat them like they were not beyond the pale. For the sake of her, I’m very pleased that her son is going to be a father.

      @Sohobod: I like how you’ve bided your time from a post that was weeks and weeks ago. Are you the same sohobod who had an anti-gay marriage rant in the Telegraph recently by any chance? [it was the only thing at the dentist] I say this because of the use of “right on” like it’s something intellectual and some kind of strike throw was also in said letter.

      I quite enjoy having a stalker, if you like I can prove I’m British, I even have a birth certificate and a passport, although your type don’t accept that as proof of residence it is the best I can offer.

      Finally, given how you don’t quite get how genealogy works Diana wasn’t a member of the royal family, I know this is a ridiculously simple and obvious concept so I can understand how you have serious trouble with it.

      Go ahead, take another 5 weeks to make up something witty in response, if you do it on a post about Bryan Fischer that’d be swell.

      No not me in the Telegraph. I’m not anti gay marriage.

      Sorry you’re wrong about Diana. If you marry into the royal family, you become a member of the royal family. It’s quite simple – a bit like you.

      @hf2hvit: I had a double take moment what I read that, but alas I couldn’t come up with a rebuff.

      Touche sir, touche.

      @2eo: Seems you are stretching the truth quite a bit. It was a former Prince of Wales, uncrowned King Edward VIII, later the Duke of Windsor, who was sympathetic, brainwashed or whatever to the Nazi Regime, and he was gotten rid of –the illegal love affair was a nice PR cover, take it from someone who knows people who were there. Further, the inbred, Germanic and other complaints were rather ugly and self revealing unless you are a rabid a zionist. As for class, yes, few Americans have or even know what class is all about, something to do with noblesse oblige I believe. lol In America it is all about money trumping every other responsibility and being the ultimate goal with a whole system of values always based on the quantitative instead of the qualitative. It is why sports are so much more easily accessible to the multitudes than the arts. And the qualitative necessarily also involves the feared expertise, scholarship and elitism, since it is not simply measured by a yardstick!
