If you thought the coverage of the Zimmerman trial went overboard, just wait for the news networks on both sides of the Atlantic to go gaga over the royal baby—who would be the deceased Princess Diana's first grandchild, and is the first son or daughter of Prince William and Duchess Catherine (aka Kate Middleton), whom you may remember from the royal wedding news overdose two summers ago.
Yes, the watch for William and Kate's first child is the next big news story of the summer, and there's nothing you can do about it, as The New York Times' Brian Stelter reports. There are already throngs of journalists with their fancy umbrellas posted outside St. Mary's Hospital, where Kate will give birth. Some are reporting out of pop-up bureau offices that can double as camping tents. This is despite the fact that Kate is hiding out in her mother's house, or that William is playing polo, as the latest breathless updates revealed. But Kate's expected to go into labor any day now! And the media overdosing on monarchy news will rival the headline fatigue brought on by the royal wedding coverage two years ago. Just you wait, because it's going to get ridiculous.
