George has a name/Kate’s stomach is causing drama/Camb’s moving into Anmer? [Updated]

Baby Cambridge officially has a name: George Alexander Louis.  It was announced last week, only a day after they left the hospital.  I thought it would take much longer than that to get a name, so I was surprised when they announced it so early.  It’s a pretty boring, predictable name.  Every bookmaker had George as the favorite.  I’m not in love with the name.  George is boring and seems outdated to me.  I’m surprised there are only three names and neither Charles nor Philip is among them.  I thought for sure at least one of those would be present.  Louis is the name of Lord Mountbatten—Charles’ favorite uncle—and is one of William’s middle names; Charles wanted to honor Mountbatten when he named William.  I dislike Mountbatten, he was a disgusting paedophile (sec. 3, par 4-6; par 23-29), so I dislike that they used the name Louis in honor of him.  I love the name Alexander, though.  I wish they had used that as a first name.

The Cambridges left the hospital

The new Prince of Cambridge was born only on Monday, but there is a ton of baby coverage and articles surrounding every little thing.  Like, seriously, there are eight articles on the Daily Mail website just from today.  It’s ridiculous.  I don’t even want to bother reading it all, at least not tonight, too annoying.  I just want to cover the major thing that happened today (or yesterday, technically, since it’s after midnight).  The Cambridges went home from the hospital, giving the press their money shot that they’ve been waiting outside the Lindo Wing all this month for.  Go here for a picture of the family; here for a sweet picture of William holding his son; and here and here for close-ups of the baby.  It looks like he does have some dark hairs already, so cute.  I’m going to give the baby the benefit of the doubt, since he is only a baby and he didn’t ask to be born, whom to be born to, or what he looks like.  Until he does something worth criticizing him for, I’m going to leave him alone.  But that won’t stop me from criticizing his parents.  Just because they had a baby does not absolve them of their sins.

The DM is still whitewashing W&K, but poll says people are coming around to Charles

There is a new report about a poll conducted by Ipsos MORI involving the public opinion of the British monarchy.  The article does not say how many people were involved in this poll, but it seems that this poll is by a legitimate agency, rather than some dumb online poll from a fashion website.  The company is a market research company with a legit website, so while I don’t know what the numbers for the poll are, I would assume that they aren’t misleading.  I’m going to skip the bit about 65% of those polled wanting the new royal baby to experience a normal working life, by holding an actual job, and just say: that’s interesting; they don’t want the baby to be a do-nothing, over-privileged brat that is completely out of touch with the average public.  I’m going to skip to some other things I think are interesting: the fact that Charles’ popularity is on the rise, and the whitewashing of both Kate and William’s lives.

Kate is STILL not in London!?

Kate Middleton is an idiot, and the Palace are liars.  Do you remember when it was announced that Kate wasn’t going to be at the Percy wedding because she didn’t want to travel so far from London because she was afraid of going into labor early?  Well I called that line a bunch of crap back then, but now it is really apparent that that line was a bunch of crap, because Kate has no problem leaving London to stay in Bucklebury with her parents so close to her due date.  Kate is STILL in Bucklebury, and plans to stay there for the next few days, with William (that really is a shocker since they haven’t spent much time together during the entire pregnancy).

Camilla hopes for the end of the week/Kate writes a letter/Uncle Gary is a lunatic

Camilla did an engagement in Cornwall and while revealing a plague to commemorate her visit, said, “We are all just waiting by the telephone. We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here.”  All the press outlets are jumping on that saying that the baby will definitely be here by the end of the week.  I want to point out that she said HOPEFUL, they are HOPEFUL that the baby will be here by the end of the week; not that it for sure will be here by the end of the week.  Goodness, people, get a grip.  Seriously, the #GreatKateWait (someone started that hashtag on Twitter and I think it’s funny, it really is fitting) is getting to these reporters.  Or is it the heat in London outside the #LimboWing (another Twitter hashtag that is funny and oh so appropriate)?

The Midds will be the best grandparents ever! Oh, and the Queen and Charles are around, too.

Ugh, this article deserves a post of its own it is that awful.  It is titled, Queen and Charles will dote on child, but spends the first chunk putting down George V and Mary as horrible and unfeeling grandparents and then spouts on and on about how great and doting the Middleton’s will be as grandparents.
