Well, it would be redundant to say the incoming Cambridge Baby is receiving a boatload of press, chat via social media and really pointless news coverage. The major US networks are setting up camp by the hospital as we speak. I can’t help it, this malarkey reminds me of this clip from the movie “Anchorman.”
You’ve gotta admit it’s beyond similar. I’m not likening Kate Middleton to an endangered Asian marsupial, just the idiot news. Dear lord! As I am typing this, another news bit about the royal birth came on the tube. Yeesh! (This one was about wax sculptures of the Duke & Duchess…that was BBC.)
Furthermore, genealogists–since they have nothing else to do?–have informed that the unborn child and Blue Ivy (Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter) are 23rd cousins twice removed. If that weren’t a waste of genealogy research, Baby Cambridge is also 11th cousins with Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner’s kids AND 28th cousin to Brad & Angelina’s ever-expanding brood. Since so many of those kids are adopted, doesn’t that statistic change a bit? So 28th cousin to the natural ones only? (To which royal figure am I related? With this type of research, I’d wager all of ’em.)
Even more frightening is the use of technology to come up with this:
Since the announcement that the Duchess of Cambridge was carrying the heir, the media hoopla has probed the nether-regions of logic looking for an update. [Let’s bear in mind, I’m living in the US. It’s not our royal family. Didn’t we reject a monarchy and the privilege of nobility? Yet here we are.]
An event that hasn’t even happened is evening news material.
