KATE DELIVERS An Error-Free Reign & a King-Sized Future King
Somewhere on high, Di is smiling.
Jackie Kennedy famously observed that if you screw up your kids, nothing else matters. For all her famous faults, Di’s warm and down-to-earth mothering seems to be paying off, at least with her beloved ‘Wills.’
Prince William has chosen well in his future Queen. Continuing her error-free reign in England and in the larger kingdom of celebrity, Kate remains as gracefully surefooted as when she sailed through her pregnancy in sexy high heels and a sensible yet stunning wardrobe.
“It will be a boy,” I predicted confidently to my husband midway through Princess Kate’s labor. “Because Kate always does her job perfectly.” A sexist sentiment, admittedly, but who can doubt that in jolly Olde England, pints are being hoisted a bit higher today with the future of the monarchy in the no-doubt chubby hands of the new 8-lb-plus Prince?
With racy sister Pippa on hand to ‘take the heat’ from Fleet Street, Kate is on a Phil Mickelson-level roll. BTW, my own prediction of a name for the strapping baby boy born today is– given William and Katherine’s respect for tradition and the failing health of William’s grandfather– ‘PHILLIP.’
Can it be that the long-running Royal soap opera has produced not only a hardy heir to their historic throne but a rare celeb-era ‘happy ending’?
