Exactly. They are good looking, classy, well dressed, and well educated. What's there not to like?

The comparison to the Kardashians is silly.

I don't hate them, I don't mind them, it just bothers me that some people are still better than others for nothing else but their station in life. In an event of a serious massive emergency, these people would get priority over you and me. In a triage situation, their child will get priority over other kids with more serious problems. It's all quite harmless in normal life, but it could easily become dangerous. I don't like it when someone's life is more valueable based on arbitrary reasons.

Millions and millions of living creatures have made babies thoughout history. Why the **** should I care about these 2 making a kid? Why the **** is this story even on the news? A real news story(should it happen) would be if their child gets arrested for a serious crime.

Lord help me, I agree with AP.

I'm not going to give them extra attention because they got extremely lucky.

Society would be better off if we focused on helping the people who are born unlucky. Over a billion people live in absolute poverty (an estimated 18% of the worlds population) just because they got unlucky with where they were born.
I certainly agree that we should focus on helping people born into poverty.

However, you need to consider that we live in one of the top eleven states in the world (based on GDP per capita). You and I both live well above the poverty line. Are we not the lucky elites of the world? What are you or I doing to adjust for these problems? Sitting on the internet is in and of itself a luxury that a huge number of people can't afford. You've gone to the movies how many times in the past month? Couldn't you have instead donated that money to causes that are trying to adjust for socioeconomic inequalities?

Even in your own statement, you criticize the monarchy for being 'elite' in the sense that you're only likely to meet them if you were also born as an elite. Well, could you not say the same thing about any of us compared to many people from developing nations? They have next to no chance of meeting you or I unless we deliberately choose to go vacation there and happen to meet them.

Even if we don't want to give them 'extra' attention, why do we have to resort to 'who cares'? If we want to treat them no better than anyone else, shouldn't we say 'congratulations,' as we would any other couple announcing their pregnancy?

First trimester carries highest risk for miscarriage.
They probably announced it so soon because she had to be admitted to the hospital. Heard the severe sickness she has is a sign of twins most of the time.

If she has twins, and if they are born via a C-Section, doesn't that give the doctor the power to decide which infant becomes the future monarch?

Should would have a heart attack the moment that her son married someone who isn't really much of anything like her or have the same excat values that Princess Di had.

Yeah, it's quite sad.

I sincerely hope that Kate and William grow old together with a happy, healthy family.

Prince William and his wife, Catherine, will cross the pond to New York for the first time next month, paying their respects to victims at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in lower Manhattan and catching a Brooklyn Nets game at the Barclays Center.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last visited the United States in 2011, combining commerce and charity work during three days in Southern California, including a polo competition.
A statement from Clarence House said the royal couple will be in the Big Apple from December 7-9, with the duke visiting Washington, D.C., during the second day of their stay to attend a conference at the World Bank.
