morning of Monday 22nd July 2013
in London, England and a historic event is about to ignite a spark in the slumbering world
and the future of the British monarchy and Commonwealth. The morning news and
tabloids are fired up with the unexpected headline that Kate Middleton, The Duchess
of Cambridge has gone into labour....a baby is on its way.
But this is no ordinary birth that the world are ruffling their feathers over in colossal anticipation - its the birth of a baby that is destined to rule a nation and commonwealth. The future heir of
I feel confident it will be in the world within 24 hours though....for the pending media's sake.
I hope they're paying them over time.
Some of the newsreaders I recognise from the morning news so they must have been here a lonnnng time and even if the baby is born today, they may not even get a glimpse until at least tomorrow. They better order in their coffees.
Hang on...is that a pink care bear I see? Ah that takes me back - its attached to a small striped tent pitched on the pavement adorned with union jacks, cuddly toys and two floating balloons, the blue reading 'Little Prince' and the pink 'Little Princess'. Very generous.
Two girls wearing orange t-shirts emblazoned 'Crew - Mother&Baby #royalbaby' on their backs walk through the crowd offering blue cupcakes to the quirky patriotic characters who have anchored themselves to the hospital benches and set up camp for the duration of the birth - with no sign of shifting.
