C'mon...it's a baby. Yes, it's third in line to the throne of England, but still.
I am fairly sure there is massive disinterest out there in FReeperland, but I thought you might want to know.
Admin Moderator- This is dupe thread. Please Kill it? Thank you.
In Britain, do they spell it labour?
Yes we do.
A most happy and blessed event.
If I owned pigeons I think I should let them loose.
Instead, I’ll let myself loose!
Thanks...I am watching. However, I need to go to bed.
I’m gonna guess labor will last 9 hours. We’ll see.
I’m shocked! I was certain the good Duchess was a Tory!!!
Godspeed Luv! All the Best Kate!
This is a BANNER headline on the NY Post’s website today. Now, I like this gal a lot and I’m thinking of her and saying a prayer and hoping all goes well, but I had to ask, is this appropriate for a NYC paper.
I can’t remember them ever having a banner like that before,it’s a little over the top.
Yeah, well, we like the Brits and it’s great to have a chance to share good news with them for a change.
Ugh, this annoys me so much.
It’s THE hospital, okay? THE hospital!
Leaving off the article is even more annoying than the propensity to stick extraneous “U”s into words where there is no phonetic reason to do so.
I could not care less about the baby. Any news about the royals is wasted airspace, IMO...
In America, only dogs are call Duke or Duchess.
In England - which you might recall, is where the English language is from - they say “in hospital” and many words that we spell with “or” they spell with “our”. This is the country and culture that gave us Shakespeare and the King James translation of the bible - and even our Declaration of Independence and our constitution comes from English writing and philosophy.
Or jazz musicians.
Hon, get a coffee before you offend out Brit cousins any more egregiously.
I am excited having seen the births of two other future Kings.
And I love the Queen!
“Or jazz musicians.” I’ll grant you that, but I must quote Robert Heinlein: “The United States has become a place in which professional athletes and entertainers are mistaken for people of significance.”
You’ve just proved the point.

How about “ in school”? The ‘in hospital’ thing bothered me till I realized we use that wording for “in school”. We don’t say “our kids are ‘ in the school today’. Tis a puzzlement.
