Forget Brexit, there's a new royal baby on the way

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Even though Prince Harry and Meghan's child will only be seventh in line to the British throne, such has been the interest in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, that his or her birth is set to grab headlines across the globe.

Reuters took to the streets of London to gauge public opinion, as Meghan's due date nears.

"It's all very exciting," said Rosie O'Dea, 25, as she walked across Westminster Bridge near parliament.

"It's showing that the royal family is a little bit more progressive than maybe thought before, with Meghan from the States and a bi-racial baby and everything and that's brilliant." However, in the same way many Britons have complained of Brexit boredom and the incessant media coverage it generates, some are hardly thrilled by the prospect of another royal baby.

"Everyone has babies ... so frankly I don't care," said Donna Smith, sitting in a cafe at an east London market.
