Welcome Baby Cambridge

Timothy Kincaid

July 22nd, 2013

CNN

It’s a boy! Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William on Monday welcomed their first child.
The baby boy was born at 4:24 p.m., weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces. A name has not yet been announced for the child, who is now third in line to the throne.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” read an official announcement that was placed outside Buckingham Palace.

Welcome, Baby Cambridge. It’s quite a different world than the one your great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, entered. And when you gain your throne, should the monarchy continue ’til then, we cannot begin to guess what challenges or triumphs will face you and this world you have just met.

Let’s have a name competition! Perhaps a gender ambiguous name . . .

Terry Madison

Or names from British situation comedies . . .

Basil Humphries

Or from recent popular English literature . . .

Rowling Potter

And his last name is Windsor, for he is from the house and lineage of Windsor.

At the risk of being a total dick, I’ll say two things:

1) a wealthy powerless monarch doesn’t face many obstacles except those which threaten to encourage a population to end the monarchy.

2) i’m unclear why we’re posting for the British Royal family, when I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen birth announcements for any other European royal house, let alone any royal house from Asia

Granted, it’s nice and topical, but the posting seems grossly out of place.

Nothing against the baby, but the idea that some people are born superior to others is super-creepy.

If I were a betting man, the newest Windsor won’t have to worry about his coronation until 2093! Great-grandmom has another 20 years in her, Grandad 20, and Dear Old Dad could well be in his 90s before he dodders along to get his crown (and that’s assuming the Medical-Industrial Complex doesn’t deliver on their threat to extend lifetimes to 150!). Of course, Westminster Abbey will be in 10 feet of water by 2093…

What a non-news story – it has happened a few times before, like to ALL of us!

Gee, I was going to congratulate you for making a kind, thoughtful post.
