BLAISE TAPP: Even in the 21st century, you can't beat old-fashioned playtime

So when are you going?’ was the question I got asked countless times this week.

It relates to when I’ll be going back to London to make another royal documentary – this time on the Duchess of Cambridge and the impact her having a second child will have on the British monarchy.

I’ve made five royal documentaries so far and I have absolutely no clue as to why I keep getting asked to do them – not that I’m complaining.

I wouldn’t call myself a royal expert at all, but the moment the news broke people kept asking me when I’d be heading to the capital.

I’m not going to lie, there are whispers of a project.

But I just don’t know how I’ve somehow fallen into this niche of royal programming. Weird.

Still, it’s fab news isn’t it? I knew Kate would fall soon.

Prince George is over one already and she’s not exactly a spring chicken (says she who is nearly 32 and childless).

I didn’t think they’d get away with just having the one child – it’s kind of royal tradition to have two babies.

Except if you’re Prince Harry, who seems to love nothing more than defying protocol.

William is far more about falling in line, so to speak. I’m thrilled for him and Kate though.

I think they’re great parents and will do what they can to have as normal a family life as possible, whilst still remaining in keeping with the royal family and its history.

In my opinion, that’s the way it should be.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the naughty royals and Harry is my fave, but I do think it’s important that some members of the family keep British tradition going – it makes this great country unique and I don’t think they get enough credit for that.

But I know that some of you will disagree with me because the royal family is one of those subjects that are guaranteed to divide any group of people.

So good luck to William and Kate as they look forward to the arrival of number two – and I await that documentary call.
