KATE Middleton Pregnancy Watch: the Duchess of Cambridge in the news – day 17:

The BBC Sports Personality of the Year

US Weekly: “Pregnant Kate Middleton Feeling “Very Well” After Second Bout of Acute Morning Sickness”

“A decision wasn’t made until the very last minute due to Catherine’s health,” a source told Us Weekly of Middleton’s attendance. “She doesn’t feel well enough to carry out a lengthy engagement but was determined to pay tribute to [Team GB sportsmen and women].”

Examiner: “Prince William wants ‘normal life’ for royal baby”

The imperial heir to the head of State wants a “normal” life for his child? You can’t be normal and be a future regent. Without divine powers and lineage, the child isn’t royal. You can’t have it both ways.

The Embryo Branch

Examiner: “Kate Middleton’s baby bump will get its own security”

The Clothes

Global Grind:

Kate Middleton is definitely known for her good looks, and even after a short hospitalization, her glow just can’t seem to be dimmed.

The Stir:

This look is just so polished and demure, and the puffiness of the shoulders and sleeves really screams “mom,” don’t you think?


Only the Independent leads with Jacinta Saldanha. The Indy leads with a picture of the nurse’s two children and their father at her funeral. Is this intruding?

First came a man bearing a simple wooden cross, then a brass band playing dirges. A little way behind them, an ambulance followed carrying the coffin of Jacintha Saldanha as it made one last journey.

The 46-year-old nurse was buried yesterday afternoon in a graveyard in the village of Shirva, lowered into the hard, red earth while her husband, Benedict Barboza, and two children stood hugging each other for support. Purple and white flowers were thrown at the coffin and hundreds of people who had pressed together around the graveside, surrounded by coconut trees, sang hymns and recited prayers.

Gulp. The nurse you never knew is now immersed in the purple pros of the grief-happy media.

Afterwards, asked whether he had given any thought to how he and his children might start to try and rebuild their lives when they returned to Britain, Mr Barboza said he could not yet think of that. “I am still at the graveside,” he replied.

World ends.
