Yeah you can say what you want… about the royals, but what you never expect to see is this. Yes that up above. Yes, that’s right. Prince William, a new father for God’s sake, flipping off the press just moments after the birth of his third child.
Absolutely abhorrent, isn’t it. Who, who does he think he is? You can even see a look of smug confidence in his face too, as if he’s saying, ‘Come on mate, try it, I’m Prince William, I’m untouchable, mate. I could have you assassinated right here, right now.’
This is not what I pay my taxes for: to be made a mug of by the Prince of Wales.
Now for the reality. In case you didn’t realise, the above photo is just an incredibly timed photograph which shows William from an angle of perfect f*cklessness.
So what’s the real story here? Turns out Prince Willy was joyfully strolling out of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital after the birth of his son, the now named Prince Louis.
As he was walking to his car, William told reporters:
We are very happy, very delighted – thrice the worry now!
Upon saying the word ‘thrice’ (so pompous), William lifted three fingers to the press to signify his three children.
While it was an innocent enough gesture, from one angle William looks like he’s saying less ‘thrice’ and more ‘p*ss off’.

As by now I am sure you’re all aware, Duchess of Cambridge, better known to us as Kate Middleton, gave birth at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday April 23, which is known for its extreme privacy, where the royal couple’s other children were born.
A tweet by Kensington Palace reveals the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided to name their son Louis Arthur Charles.

Kate was checked into St. Mary’s this morning this morning after entering the early stages of labour. On March 22 she stepped back from her royal duties to go on maternity leave, her last public appearance was at a charity lunch in London.
Prior to the birth of their third child, it is understood neither Kate or Will knew the sex of the child.
For the first time in history, the sex of the latest addition to the royal family will not change who is next in line for the throne.
Male heirs now do not take precedence over female ones thanks to 2013’s Succession to the Crown Act.
Prince Harry though now moves down to sixth in line due to the new arrival, bumping from the number five spot.
It’s believed Kate went through hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) during the first few months of pregnancy, an extreme case of morning sickness. It is something she experienced when she was pregnant with her two eldest children, George and Charlotte.
It is said HG affects an estimated two per cent of expecting mothers with symptoms including; constant nausea, severe vomiting and weight loss.
