The 'Great Kate Wait' Continues As One Journalist Keeps It Honest
With a 24-hour news cycle and increased public interest in the royal birth, some journalists and spectators have become increasingly frustrated with the lack of information. One journalist, BBC's Simon McCoy, has taken a unique approach to covering the story: by keeping it real.
While on air with his counterpart in the studio, McCoy, wearing a traditional blue suit with a peach neck tie, signed off by saying, "Well, plenty more to come from here of course. None of it news because that will come from Buckingham Palace. But that won't stop us." According to several outlets, McCoy has gone so far as to read user comments bemoaning the 24-hour coverage.
As the attention continues to escalate at Lindo Wing and Buckingham Palace, where the official announcement will be revealed, the media continues to gather in droves to the hospital wing where Kate will reveal her bundle of joy. An ominous picture has surfaced comparing this royal birth to that of Princess Diana in 1982, showing a very different scene.
