Have your say

Despite being on another continent, I couldn’t get away from the fabulous news that our Kate and William are expecting their first child.

Since I did the Royal Wedding video voiceover for OK! magazine, I’ve been waiting patiently for this news to break and I was thrilled when I found out. Big congratulations to them.

I think this is great for the UK. Kate and Wills are new royal blood and they’re slowly but surely changing the perception of our British royal family for the better.

They’re more accessible, more normal and Kate is just a commoner like you and I.

And now that David Cameron has agreed to change the rules of succession, one day their new baby, boy or girl, will take the throne. How exciting.
