My husband and I were discussing the birth of the royal baby which went something like this:
Gerard: Was the royal baby born yet?
Karen: Yes, I saw something about it on Yahoo News. I don't get why it's such a big deal though.
Gerard: It is a big deal! He's royalty-he's going to be a future king and never have to work a day in his life..
Karen: Oh, I think he will, he'd be bored. Do they still have a king who rules over there?
Gerard: No, the royal family doesn't make any governing decisions.
Karen: Well then who does?
Gerard: The Prime Minister who is like our President. The royal family is just a tradition. Didn't you take history in school?
Karen: I didn't study England history. Now I really don't get what all the excitement is about if they don't have any authority? He's going to be a king with no authority?? Aren't there two brothers ahead of him anyway?
Gerard: Actually there's a guy ahead of William but this baby passes up Harry because Harry is married.
Karen: Wait, that's not fair! That makes no sense at all! (laughing)
Gerard: Good night.
Gerard: It's nice to have something happen that makes a lot of people happy for a change.
When I saw the pictures of all the people outside the palace on Yahoo news, I couldn't believe it! People actually made a special trip to be there, even people from other nations! I really don't see why this is such a big deal. It did get me wondering how the birth of Jesus would have been different had he been born in this decade. I wonder if He would have been in the news throughout the world.
What do you think about all the hoopla about the birth of the royal family baby, Prince George?
