Yep, I have the scoop. Here is a picture of the new prince. Ok, this photo was taken in 1948 and is of the grandfather of the current ‘new prince’ but hey, a baby photo is a baby photo. 😉
I suspect that if we edited this picture to seem as though it had been taken surreptitiously on a camera phone we could make a fortune… a fortune I say!!
Good luck to the happy couple on their new arrival but I wouldn’t be them for a billion dollars.
As if there isn’t already enough pressure on new parents without having the paparazzi of the world lined up on your doorstep day after day.
Poor Kate, she is never going to be able to hang out in her pjs all day because it is just easier and she can’t remember what sleep is.
Public tantrum from a two-year-old? What about when the new kid keeps her up all night screaming? Is the world going to sympathize with her?
No, all they are going to do is comment on her dark eyes and haunted look (all mums have it at some time) and make up some story about her not coping.
Of course she will probably have a multitude of helpers for those late nights, and to do things like help scrape cereal off the ceiling and out of the carpet, so she will probably always look much better than the go-it-alone mums.
The poor prince too, is he ever going to get to do a nudie run under the sprinkler in the backyard on a hot day like normal kids? Fish and chips in the park? No. The paps will be all over the pictures (and he will never live the nudie run one down).
Yes, I know, he will be living a life of privilege. Money, education, travel, whatever he wants, but what a life. Under scrutiny every moment you are out of the house, photos taken of your every move.
The life of this prince will probably be the most heavily documented and commented on of pretty much anyone in the world. Most people in the public eye have a short burst of fame. Once their scandal dies down or their term of office is over they are forgotten and the public move on to the next victim.
This prince has the (mis?)fortune to have been born into a family who stay in the public eye at all times. Sure, their popularity waxes and wanes but they are never quietly going about their business without anyone noticing. What pressure!
Well, good luck to him. I think he (and any future siblings) are going to need it.
