Kate Middleton Gives Birth To Toronto Media Frenzy
As the Royal baby watch continues, I just read a story in the Metro on the subway that a hospital just outside Toronto in Oshawa, Lakeridge Health, invited Kate Middleton to give birth in Canada last week. The hospital said they have “brand new rooms ready for you, and we treat every newborn like a little prince or princess. We love babies. See you soon.” They did not get a response, and with Kate in labour now, it may be too late.
They are many other interesting Royal Baby stories from Canada. Newtalk 1010 reports that the Fairmont Royal York hotel in downtown Toronto has set up a station dubbed “Countdown to the Royal Baby.” It includes a book of congratulations for you to sign and pass your good wishes. The hotel also plans to hold an Afternoon Tea once when the baby is born, with blueberry or cranberry scones and Prince William’s favourite chocolate biscuit cake.
Then there is the #royalbabywatch hashtag on Twitter. I am now completely dizzy from following all the updates, almost every second, true or false. The hashtags #KateMiddleton and #Royalbabywatch have been in the top ten trends for Toronto all day long.
Need a break? Don’t even thinking of turning on the Toronto TV stations, City News Toronto, Global, CP24, CTV. You can run but you can’t hide from this one.
I wonder when this baby will make his\her grand entrance? Hopefully soon!
