BBC Newscaster Hates Reporting Royal Baby News And It's Hilarious


There’s a third royal baby on the way and we’ve know that since September. Some people out there will be very excited to hear this news, whilst others will be furious. More people taking money from the state and being born with a diamond spoon in their mouth, etc etc…

There’s a middle ground in there somewhere, and that’s where I like to think I am. I don’t dislike the royal family at all, I just can’t bring myself to care that there’s going to be another person in the world that’s going to be infinitely more important than I can ever hope to be without even trying.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the yet-to-be-born child, nor do I have anything against George and Charlotte, but there’s only so much of people waiting outside a hospital for them to be born – sometimes for days on end – that I can reasonably handle.

Apparently I’m not alone. I didn’t for a second thing that I was but suspend your disbelief, albeit briefly, for the arc of this article. One man against the world. Everyone had become consumed with the news of the imminent arrival of the royal baby. How was this man to cope? All hope for reasonable coverage of other things on the news seemed to be lost. Until one BBC newscaster chimed in…

Michael Bay is currently making a film of that.

Anyway, BBC News reporter Simon McCoy really hates having to deal with royal baby news, something that you’ll be familiar with if you remember the coverage of George’s birth in 2013…

His opinions on Charlotte’s coverage were probably similar, but now we know how he feels about as-yet-unnamed new baby, expected in April.

Whilst reporting the news, a “breaking” story came in from Kensington Palace saying exactly that; the baby is expected to be born in April, and McCoy was not one bit impressed…

He says:

We’ve just got this coming in from Kensington Palace. Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby in April.

Now, bearing in mind they announced that she was pregnant back in September and it was thought she was around two or three months pregnant, I’m not sure how much news this really is, but anyway it’s April, so clear your diaries, get your time booked off – because that’s what I’m doing – and, anyway, that news just coming in from Kensington Palace…

He loves it. And so do Twitter…

Never change, Simon.
