Kate Middleton pregnancy watch: a Jewish ginger woman born to rule

KATE Middleton Pregnancy Watch: Day 5 the Duchess of Cambridge delivers a nuclear bomb, a ginger explosion and a Jewish woman to rule:

The front pages :

The Scotsman: “Smiling Kate leaves hospital”
The Times: “Kate heads for home”
The Guardian: “We are on the mend Duchess leaves hospital”
The Telegraph: “Kate goes home for Christmas”
Daily Express: “Prince Charles just can’t wait to be a grandfather”
Daily Star: “Kate feels blooming fabulous”

Louise Mensch (The Sun) : “LET’S just hope it’s a girl!”

Of course, it doesn’t really matter what sex Kate’s baby is — any child is wonderful.

See headline.

But after David Cameron scrambles to change succession laws in time, it really would be fitting if we had our first female heir apparent.

Because a female regent would be a big shift from the current situation?

…As the royal baby forces changes to the constitution, a less-noticed sideline removes the ban on Catholics marrying the monarch. What happens if Kate’s baby, if a girl, decides she’s actually Catholic? Or Jewish? Do we chuck her off the throne? Of course not.

Why can’t a boy make the same decision? Mensch doesn’t say. This is about “princess power” .

..Plenty of politicians will want to do more than help a first-born princess become Queen. We should boot out the bishops, let peerages go to daughters as well, change the rules on coats of arms.

We? Mensch resigned her parliamentary set to go and live in New York. Who are “we”?

…Meanwhile, as Kate’s baby changes more than nappies, Prince Charles should seize the moment. He should say, “I love my wife”, and declare that all this fake title nonsense should stop. Camilla has proven herself to the British people.

Fake titles? You want the heir to the throne, a man who is supposed to uhgold the idea if imperial power and superiority to say that some titles are “nonsense”? He makes people knights, dames and OBEs, What is fake? what is real?

…Charles would be respected by all if he said: “She is the Princess of Wales, and when I succeed, she will be Queen.”

…I would love to see Kate’s first-born daughter become Princess of Wales. And I would love to see Camilla take up that title, which she technically already holds.
