Royal Baby

The Royals had a baby boy
And Britain’s brimming o’er with joy.
They’ve waited for this festive date
To celebrate with Will and Kate.

This newborn babe is said to be,
Succession-wise, at number three;
And if this lad had been a lass,
Poor Harry she would still surpass.

For there are rules about the throne
Which English folk have always known;
But laws have changed and ever since,
A princess rates just like a prince.

Today’s announcement simplifies - 
This little prince can claim his prize;
And if a sister joins the chain,
She’ll have to wait her turn to reign!

    This would do well with the talk show audiences. You are the Queen of topicality.

    Lovely simply written but excellent couplets. I know... the Royal Family and all their 'happenings'-- quite the TV take over at the moment.. but I love babies-- cute little thing I am sure he is.
