It's the media that makes the fuss, not the Royals themselves. So I hope the world will give them a break. They're not lauding it over anybody, nor would you ever hear a Cambridge say, as some celebrities have been known to, "Do you know who I am?" And if their loveliness is due to being "boring", really? Then give me some more "boring" to counter our high-drama, high-octane lives.
One thing is certain. There will be many women in New Zealand claiming their bets on this happy pregnancy news. Of course, we'd all hoped she was already pregnant on her visit. During the tour we became seriously giddy with excitement when Wills supposedly told our local Cambridge baby shawl maker, Cynthia Read: "you might have to make another one soon."
As Kate and Wills' supernanny starts her first week on the job, I'm posting these tips for her in the likely knowledge that she already has things pretty much Shipshape and Bristol fashion round at Kensington Palace. After all, that's what the best nannies are for -- they organise not only the children, but the family into the bargain.
