As they develop their parenting style, the public arena will create challenges the rest of us cannot begin to imagine. But the details of their family histories will cause challenges we commoners can understand quite well.
To the general public, please remember that it is not your job to watch news reports about a baby that may or may not be real. Your job is to pay attention to the toddler in your life.
With the traditional formalities in announcing the birth behind us, now all the proud parents have to do is to reveal to the world the name of their new son. But don't hold your breath; the announcement could take a while.
How tragic to watch Aaron Sorkin's brilliant, complex, committed "Newsroom" on HBO and then turn on CNN the next day and watch endless, spectacularly uninteresting coverage of the birth of a child (it's a boy!) to an uninteresting couple in England while the rest of the world burned.
For historical accuracy: The Federalists in the early Congresses did indeed propose the title "His High Mightiness, the President of the United States and Protector of their Liberties" for the president, but it was laughed down by James Madison and others and the simple "Mister President" was accepted instead.

Could the #GreatKateWait finally be coming to an end? Could we all be about to be a part of (well, not exactly a part of, but we can act like we're family, can't we?!) the most talked about birth since, well, probably Prince William?
