12 of the funniest reactions to the royal baby news
“A third royal baby, can we get a bank holiday for this?”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced they are expecting their third baby, a sibling for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The news came after Kate, who is less than 12 weeks pregnant, had to pull out of a public engagement on Monday due to severe morning sickness.
While social media was awash with congratulatory messages for the royal couple, the news certainly led to some creative tweets…
