And for all the guardianistas who claim that abolishing the monarchy would somehow give everyone more democracy and equality, just take a look at the freest, most equal and forward-thinking countries on earth: Norway, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, and the UK.

# So Kate Middleton is pregnant. I thought that it was government policy to discourage people who don’t work from having kids.
# Upon hearing the news Harry said to his sister-in-law Kate, “If it’s a girl I think you should name her after my mum, and should it be a boy I think you should name him after my dad.”
“Thanks Harry,” she replied, “I think if we were to have a girl we would like to name her after your mother but if we have a boy I think Wills would rather name him after his dad.”
# Kate Middleton has said if she has a boy she will call him by the most popular British boy’s name at the moment. We look forward to the arrival of baby Mohammed.
