Michael K, as usual, brings up an excellent point: you know those people who start camping out outside the hospital whenever a royal birth is imminent? Days ahead. You’ve seen the pictures. Be happy that you can’t smell the pictures. Because imagine? Anyway, when Prince Harry and Royal Meghan’s baby is on the way, will there be people waiting outside the hospital?

Dear Gossips,
