royal baby satireAfter more than two weeks camped outside London’s St Mary’s hospital, journalists are starting to fear the worst: what if the Duchess of Cambridge is actually just a boring, 31 year-old expecting mother who just happens to have a rich husband?

    What if the baby is born with red hair !!!!
