    So exciting! So happy for them, they're a lovely couple and I wish them all the best. The name is nice, I was hoping they'd go for a more interesting name, but it goes well all the same.

    I liked them as a couple more before they had a baby, especially considering they named it George.

      The Royal Family is a massive tourist trap in the UK. I'm glad they had a baby and can continue this tradition but this birth has not left any impressions on me at all.

      While I'm very happy for them, I don't really care much beyond that. Well... perhaps I do care about their choice of name for the baby. George? Really?

            Geez, kings and douches *cough* I mean dukes and barons. Why do we really have to keep those nonsensical titles today? This is the modern era and almost no country is running by despotism. All the remaining titles and all the media and stuff, they are all just posing. It's bullplob...

              Please stop wasting my tax dollars on vacations to Canada. It's bad enough I have to look at y'all on my paper bills, but to know that that same bill is sponsoring your "tours" of a country that has been separated from Britain for about 150 years is just another slap in the face.

              Thank you.

              Also, OT, I could not care at all. I was curious what they named him, but after seeing George I mega headfaced the wall.

              Congrats to them, wish them the best. I don't really care though haha. Pointless news to me tbh, but good for them (:

                Can't really get behind it tbh. The only enjoyable thing about all the attention to me is the media messing up one to many times! I looked at a video the other day that had me in stitches!!!

                Also it's kinda depressing that the prince is already richer, happier and more popular than me despite only being born a couple of days ago! lol

                  I'm happy for them as the birth of your first child is truly something special, but I can't help but feel like the news is focusing too much on this. It's become a bit tiresome and seeing it as the main headline on CNN USA's website was just silly, haha.

                    Honestly? It's nice that they report something nice in the news for once instead of a tragedy.

                      A lot of people don't understand that this is so big in the news because it's a happy occasion. Apparently people don't care about when a decent celebrity couple has a baby because it gets in the way of the sad stuff. I've seen a few people try to twist the joy people feel for this into guilt and it seems like quite a heartless thing to do.

                        Pretty much that's what this whole thing is like. It's a kid, people. Lot's of people have kids. It's not a big deal.

                        I think it's nice (and I'm just wow at the ignorance of people who don't realize the British Monarchy is still relevant these days). The funny thing for me though is that I used to live in a town called Prince George.

                        "I grew up in Prince George" will never be the same again

                        I don't even care at all. I just hope some day I won't have to lick his boots..

                        Seriously though the media makes WAY too big a deal of royalty, celebrities and stupid pregnant people. :\

                        It's lovely that they had a child and I'm thrilled that it's healthy, but aside from the feelings I'd have for any other couple in their position I don't really care about the royal baby. It's kind of depressing that I'm this far into life and yet some guy has just been born who'll be king in a few generations time, but I'm not interested aside from that. George is a nice name, though!
