From the moment it was announced that Prince William's wife, Kate, was expecting their first child, and third-in-line-for-the-throne-heir, many moms and the media have struggled to find commonalities between her new baby experience, and everyone else's. Everyday challenges a new mom faces will always have a slight variance for Kate.
Last Wednesday, singer Beyoncé Knowles posted a photo on Instagram that sent star-gazers into an uproar. Just once we'd love to see a Facebook status update like: "OMG! Beyoncé was collecting food for the food bank. I am so, like, going out tomorrow and doing a food drive!"
By the time George of Cambridge doth wear the crown, Britain will have changed in four dramatic ways.
Of all the ludicrous pieces of claptrap that I have heard spouted about Prince George, there is nothing quite so bonkers - so utterly fantastical - as this idea that the boy is going to be circumcised. Where has this nutso idea come from? I know exactly where: the United States.
Looking back at royal baby week, one can't help but realise the global reach of such occasions and the positive knock on effects for international tourism. Judging by the international media gathered in London for the birth of Prince George, Britain's profile has undoubtedly been lifted, with images and footage splashed across newspapers and TV sets globally... Hosting the very best national broadcasters from around the world puts us front of mind once again and reinvigorates our brand as we seek to maintain the momentum of the Royal Wedding, The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and of course the 2012 Olympic Games.
Here's the thing. When men (and especially princes) take two weeks off to take care of their newborns, everyone applauds. But when an "ordinary" mom takes two weeks, two months, two years or 20 years "off" to raise her child, no one (or very few) bat an eyelash.
I may be on vacation this week, but camping gear, Kate's "baby belly," Gwyneth's school choice, teaching kids how to succeed and nature's beauty all s...
y having a Head of State picked for no other reason than which womb they came from, we undermine every call for talent, entrepreneurship, and aspiration in this country. By denying any member of this nation the right to go for the top job, we create second-class citizens by default.
Is my body supposed to pretend it didn't rearrange all my organs and open my rib cage and my hips and grow a new human person and then proceed to feed and nourish that person from the very same body that delivered him, whole and perfect, into the world?
The birth of the newest royal puts Diana back in the hearts and minds of our entire generation. We watched her fairy tale wedding; lived through her challenges; grew to adore and were devastated by her death. As many of us are becoming grandparents, we feel a fresh wave of pain at her loss.
Prince George has many years to live up to the name carried by many a royal and many a celebrity, but we all know he will inevitably become a heart-throb in his own right. Here's a list of our favorite heart-throb George's of all time.
There was a time, not all that long ago, when thrift stores and consignment shops were seen exclusively as the domain of penny-pinching grandmas. But ...
With today's focus on digital communications, and the potential for confidential information to be shared online or lost on a mobile device, it's not surprising that organisations turn first to the IT department to manage their information security.
No matter whether you hear him called -- "George Cambridge," "George Wales" or "George Mountbatten-Windsor" -- the closest thing to a statutory surname that our new little prince will have will be "Windsor."
As Kate Middleton gives birth to the third heir to the throne, around 100 pregnant women continue to be detained in the UK for immigration purposes each year. A research report by Medical Justice has shown that the current policy of detaining pregnant women is ineffective, unworkable and damaging.
A woman named Kate Middleton recently gave birth to a baby. That's not news. What if Kate had given birth to a giraffe, a hippo or an echidna? Now that's news. Especially since a baby echidna is called a puggle, which is way cuter than any human name anyone has ever come up with.
