    'Kate and William'? sorry, it's their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the baby is Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, fourth in line to the throne. :D

    Charlotte is Pippa Middleton's middle name.

    LOL. This is America! We only recognize one Duke, John Wayne, and one Duchess, the white cat from the Disney cartoon! ;)

    But, congratulations to them. The birth of happy, healthy babies is always a cause for celebration! :)

    So that's why the NBA team was named the Hornets! Always wondered about that.

    Yes, that's why they were named that, although they haven't been in NC for years.

    There's a new royal baby? I did wonder what all the fuss was about on my FaceBook timeline the other day.

    I hope we're getting another public holiday

    They are in NC again.
    Or more accurately -- Charlotte's current NBA team is once again called the Hornets.
