Does anyone really care about the royal baby? I've given a lot of thought to this "royal" stuff and find it all hard to accept. What did any of the royals ever really do but be born into a certain family?

I'm happy for them but to me it's like any other celebrity baby story.  Which means I don't see what the fuss is all about.  In the city where I used to live the local radio station used to do the daily birth announcements for the babies born at the local hospital the night before and that was sweet but I can also see where all the baby hoopla can be difficult for those that have gone through miscarriages or have fertility problems or other traumatic pregenancy related stuff.   

Although compared to news about crimes, I'd rather hear news about royal or celebrity babies.

I have to say that's it's nice to finally see a new mom looking like a regular woman after giving birth.  It's just nice to hear some happy news for a change.  Where I live all we keep on hearing about are murders, bad traffic accidents, and other horrible tragedies.  It's a nice change.Embarassed

I do find the Royals interesting just because they have such history. The royal baby could someday sit on the thrown so I do find it fascinating because of that.

I know what you mean about the news. It seems like murder, cities going broke, kidnapped people being tortured in basements, and cruise ship disasters are all we ever hear about.
