Catherine Duchess Of Cambridge

The Week In Review: O Baby, Where Art Thou?

This week was a week of waiting. In the U.K. (and, let's face it, much of the world), all eyes were on the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, searching for signs that the first stages of her baby's birth might be beginning. Meanwhile, a more sombre watch has been focused on former South African president Nelson Mandela, who remains in a Pretoria hospital after weeks of treatment and waxing and waning rumours that he is near death. No matter how powerful, famous, or celebrated a person might be, birth and death are two things that remain immune to man's predictions and plans.
