EXCITEMENT is spreading after the announcement we are expecting a Royal baby in 2013. How did the people of Ipswich react?

From: Grundisburgh

Comment: “It is lovely news.

“Someone handed Prince William a babygro in Cambridge last week, it said ‘Daddy’s little co-pilot’ on it – what a coincidence. It is such a lovely end to the year.”

  • I can imagine Royalists getting excited about such a thing but there will be no escape from the constant media coverage for many of us who don't care much for something that is, to our mind, an everyday occurence the world over, that is, a woman becoming pregnant and the happy parents looking forward to the birth.

  • Another excuse for sycophancy; from the local press upwards. There will be plenty of stories about how brilliant Kate is; forgetting what many impoverished mothers go through. And then we end up with another 'Royal' to be looked after by the hard-pressed taxpayer! Good news? Not in my book.

  • We think its an invasion of Kate and Wills privacy and that the media should show respect and back off.

  • The Media are on more of a hype than the public, because us joe public have our own lives to worry about.
