"Oyez, oyez, oyez! On this day, the 22nd of July, in the year 2013, we welcome, with humble duty, a future king, the firstborn of Their Royal Highness The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the third in line to the throne. And our new prince is the third great-grandchild of Her Majesty the Queen and the grandchild of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. May he be long lived, happy, and glorious, and one day rule over us. God save the Queen!" ~ Town Crier and Captain Hook impersonator Tony Appleton, July 22nd, 2013
"Mr. Appleton, where did you get that hat? I'd love one for myself, to wear it at Ascot next year." ~ Princess Beatrice of York
Well, the world's most eagerly anticipated pregnancy has brought about a son to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The paparazzi were successfully avoided and the new parents got some actual time alone with their newborn baby. Much to the chagrin of the Dark Lord, Rupert Murdoch, who would have loved to film the whole thing and sell it all over the world.
