Those who frequently visit such sites as the Prince of Wales website received the latest news on the royal reproduction via the publication this morning.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2015,” a statement read.
While the news may seem entirely pointless to almost everyone who isn’t a member of the royal family, it does serve as a useful reminder for the rest of us to book those spring 2015 holidays now and leave the country during this period, thus avoiding any further mundane updates from infiltrating our social feeds.
