The royal baby is late. This will probably be the first and last time that punctuality will ever be a problem for the child throughout what will be a very privileged life. Really, any later and the child may have to abdicate. But why should we care about the royal baby?
The United Kingdom looks to be heading toward a triple-dip recession, which could endanger more jobs and put strain on an already fragile public service sector. Despite all this misery, some 2,013 of the mothers who give birth the same day as Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, will be entitled to a silver 1p coin with a value of about $39, or 26 pounds. In total, that’s around 56,000 pounds worth -- or about $84,000 in total. Not much considering that the royal baby is expected to bring in about $400 million for the economy.
