The world has finally be given the delightful news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to have a child. It’s all very exciting, as the child will be third in line to the throne, the great-grandchild of the Queen. Perhaps happiest Royal is Prince Harry, who slips to 4th in line to the throne, and is basically guaranteed not to have to serve as monarch. Viva Las Vegas.
With the exciting news quickly dominating the internet, thank goodness that we have the Guardian to liveblog the event.
You can read it here.
What, you might ask, could sustain such a piece of content. After all, liveblogs are usually used to accommodate rapidly changing stories and events. We hope that this will be simple, and a a few months Kate and William will have a healthy child. Luckily, The Guardian’s Head of Media and Tech is here to enlighten us. Or not:
- @iainmartin1 Who knows, but Kate’s pregnancy is the most read story on Guardian’s website at the moment. By miles.

So long as those clicks keep coming hey Dan?
We can just be thankful that they decided to start the liveblog on the confirmation of the pregnancy, and not at an…early…stage.
