Expert quote:

“In Britain there seems to be more cynicism to the royal family, whereas abroad, particularly in America, there is a more romantic imagining of what royal life is like.

When royal baby news is served at breakfast, lunch and dinner, it can be easy to feel, well, a little full. It’s at times like these when we must be mindful of those Canadians whose plates are bare of such stories, yet courageously persevere without knowledge of Kate’s preferred stroller model or the name of her gynaecologist..
