I know. It's hilarious! Let me go post on all the threads I have no interest in....

It's like when people are stuffing their face and complaining about the food. "This food is bad...gnaw,gnaw,gnaw. Is there any more?"

Hate to be a rumour monger but it really truly seemed to me that Kate was holding a doll. I can understand why this would be done, but I'm certain that all those photographs taken with mega-zoom lenses will show the baby to be real.

I could go into a lengthy explanation concerning myself but it would probably be a bit boring. In short I don't idolize people nor really follow, but I understand the historical and traditional significance of the Royal Family and how they are instrumental to the formation of the modern world and continuity of our western civilization -- even outside of the UK and the Commonwealth. Their coronations, births, marriages, and deaths are an affirmation of the prosperity of our way of life in the face of many negative forces that seek to destroy it.

The second royal baby was born at 8:34 a.m. (3:34 ET) at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's hospital after Middleton was admitted to the hospital at 6:00 a.m. (1 a.m. ET), Kensington Palace first announced via Twitter.
The baby weighs 8lbs 3 oz.
The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth, Kensington Palace said, and the both Middleton and her baby girl are "doing well."
The baby will be the fourth in line to the throne and ranks behind father Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, grandfather Charles, Prince of Wales, and brother Prince George, Prince of Cambridge.



The official birth announcement was just posted on an easel outside of Buckingham Palace.

LOL! Exactly.

George's full name contains a nod to the Queen. His second name, Alexander, is the masculine form of Queen Elizabeth's second name, Alexandra. I guess they had trouble coming up with a masculine form of Elizabeth.

There's a close-up in post #25 ... that's definitely a real baby.

I can't do much else but I'm not going to waste time following the wall to wall garbage about the new princess.

There are more important things going on in the world. Just sayin'.
Then stop following the thread.
