New Royal Baby to be presented to media in sacrificial offering to Rupert Murdoch

Congratulations have poured in from around the globe following the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son.

Almost no-one has derided the pair for adding to the world’s population issues.

Buckingham Palace said the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales were all delighted with the news.

Though the Duke of Edinburgh’s initial comments were widely believed to have been edited by an aide.

Meghan’s mother was said to be “overjoyed”, while former US First Lady Michelle Obama said she and Barack were “thrilled”.

It’s not sure why the Obamas comments have been noted. It’s as though they’re those next-door neighbours who just assume they’re as important as family.

The yet-to-be-named baby is seventh in line to the throne, behind the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and his children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – and Prince Harry.

His position means he is already being called ‘sixth spare’.

He is the Queen and Prince Philip’s eighth great-grandchild.

And will, as such, be referred to as ‘not that bothered’ and ‘what’s his name again?’.

Speaking after the birth, Harry said they planned to present the baby to the media very soon.

The presentation is thought to be a sacrificial offering to Rupert Murdoch, in return for not destroying their lives in the media.

The prince was delivered at 05:26 BST on Monday, with his father saying the baby boy was “absolutely to die for”.

Another hint for Murdoch, and regarded as a very bad  turn of phrase, given his inevitable military future.

He said both Duchess of Sussex and baby were doing “incredibly well”, adding that they were still thinking about names for the infant.

All Harry’s suggestions have a military bent and Meghan is not thought to be keen on naming him ‘Baz’, ‘Cookie’, ‘Jacko’ or ‘Bellend’.  Prince Big Hairy Ballsack is also thought to be off the table.

Arthur – a traditional royal name that is among the middle names of the baby’s grandfather, the Prince of Wales, and his uncle the Duke of Cambridge – is currently bookies’  favourite , while Alexander and James are also popular.

Dean, Warren and Tyler have also been noted as names people have used in the past.
