Are you excited for the royal baby? Weigh in!

Categories: Community

si_katewatch.jpgRoyal watchers across the globe have been breathlessly awaiting the arrival of Will and Kate's first born child since September, when it was first announced that the duchess was pregnant.

Now that Kate's due date has come and gone (maybe,) talk of the royal baby has hit a fever pitch in the media and in some social circles. Even the queen herself is getting antsy, saying that she'd like very much to meet her new great-grandchild soon so that she can go on holiday.

Bloggers and reporters are speculating endlessly about the gender, name, and manner of delivery for the heir to the British throne -- but others are getting royally annoyed by all of the hype.

Is there such thing as "too much" royal baby coverage, or are the highly-engaged justified in their interest? Is it a sweet gesture, or gaudy display to have Toronto's CN Tower lit up in pink or blue to reflect the gender of the baby once he or she is born? Would you buy royal baby pajamas or a commemorative keychain?
