You guys. You must know by now what a complete Royal Dork I am…so any good news like a new baby on the way will always makes me squeal. In a statement, Clarence House issued the following announcement.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child,” said the official announcement Monday morning.
“The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.
As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.”
UGH! Bless Kate’s heart. Some women’s bodies HATE being pregnant, and mine was one of them, too. Yeah. My first (Royal!) son, Alexanderweighed 7 lbs. 15 oz.–and I weighed 134 lbs. (5’7″) AT DELIVERY . Bleh. I really feel for poor Kate.
I wonder how Prince George of Side-Eyewill react when the new baby arrives…
Two things first, where are the names COSMO and JEROME? I’ll give you a few seconds to ponder that…
Okay. I LOVE THE NAME. George Alexander Louis. My fingers were crossed for Alexander as the Prince’s first name, but I was also hoping for George. (In fact, my darling Cynthia and I predicted the name early last evening.) When hearing “George” with an English accent, it is completely different than hearing say, George Costanza in our harsh American accent. (Are we on the same page yet?)
Let’s all just take this in for a moment. I love tradition, I love the “fairy-tale” of this couple and I pray life goes smoothly for them.
I’m THISCLOSE to starting a new blog called PoorKate.com. Seriously. This painting had to be chosen by the Queen and her Horse-in-Law, Camilla. I can see these two biddies elbowing each other and snickering behind Poor Kate’s back. Or right in FRONT of her back. Wrinkles, bags and jowls. Oh my.
As IF Kate doesn’t feel crappy enough with her difficult and barfy pregnancy, she has to presented with an Official Portrait of her poor self looking like she’s never seen the light of day, but has aged 25 years since her wedding day, all while still wearing that blue dress.
I’m tempted to Photoshop this horrible thing on Poor Kate’s behalf. What do YOU guys think? Is it just me??
