I've got to say, I really haven't paid much attention to the media coverage surrounding the Prince's birth, especially since the monarchy is just symbolic at this point rather than having actual power. I'm just glad I'm not actually over in the UK, where basically their whole week has been taken over by it.

That aside, I guess it's kind of neat to see the birth of someone that'll be on all of our coins in 50 or 60 years (if they still exist, that is), but other than that, I don't treat it any differently than if some Hollywood celebrity just had a kid. And gossip and entertainment news always seems to outshine any "real news" anyways, so it's not like we're seeing anything new.
