14 Royal Baby #2 Jokes That Are Absolutely Perfect For Celebrating The Arrival Of The New Princess
It's here! It's here! And by "it's", I mean the big day that Kate Middleton and Prince William welcome their second child to the world. The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, May 2 at 8:34 am in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, but it's not just the UK that's celebrating. Fans of the royal family from around the world have gone absolutely INSANE on social media, speculating on what the couple will name their daughter and posting meme after amazing meme in honor of the arrival of the new princess — who, by the way, is now fourth in line to the throne (and there are memes about that, too).
The Twitter response has probably been the biggest highlight of Middleton's labor and delivery, to be honest. While not everyone is a fan of the monarchy, most people are hard-pressed to dislike "Wills & Kate", as they've lovingly been referred to by their legions of fans and admirers internationally. Plus, who's really cynical enough not to celebrate and be happy at the birth of a healthy baby? I don't want to know those kind of people. The memes that continue to be posted across Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram are inspired, lighthearted and many downright hilarious, so I figured we should all share the wealth and enjoy some of the best the social networks have to offer.
