I checked the news at lunch time, and ITV’s royal correspondent, Eve Pollard, was commenting on the birth of the new princess, the second child of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. Very excitedly, she said that the new born would be “the youngest fashion icon in the world“, right from the moment she left hospital.
What a depressing thought!
A girl is born in 2015. In a modern, developed country. And the most exciting thing this commentator found to say about her is that she will be known for her looks.
