Off topic, but prominent with me at the moment, is the emotion of the royal birth. I got such joy this past 24 hours, watching with my friends on both sides of The Pond, as the events unfolded. A heartfelt congratulations to the new parents, Will and Kate, and their families, and an adoring welcome to their baby Prince. I was born the same year as Diana, so I have to realize I should be identifying with the new grandparents now. Not being a ‘royal,’ I identify more closely with the Middletons. It is hard to comprehend how Kate’s parents must have felt this morning waking up to the fact that they are grandparents to a future King.
