Have your say

So the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant. Or at least that’s what US magazine People would have us believe.

Having worked for US companies, I still can’t quite believe the fascination they have with our royals – most notably the Duchess.

According to my insider TV contacts, the industry is literally waiting day by day for news of her impending bundle to be announced by Buckingham Palace so they can start on what will undoubtedly be a media frenzy.

Don’t get me wrong. I’d be delighted if she really was having a baby.

But I want to hear about it and any other royal news from a British source – or, better still, from the mum and dad-to-be themselves. Not from over-excited Americans.
