Following the news that the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are expecting their second child, royal super-fans, ordinary plebeians, and even public figures are sharing their thoughts and questions about the announcement on Twitter.
The reactions to the #royalbaby news include a "Frozen" reference, and of course, confusion about which royal we're really talking about -- Kate or Beyonce?
Having produced an heir, one can confirm that William and Catherine are expecting a spare. #RoyalBaby

I heard there was a new #RoyalBaby, but none of these articles mention Beyonce at all.

Don't cry George. If royal siblings are anything like Frozen it means you get to break the law & it's their job to get the charges dropped.

What if Kate's only pretending to be pregnant so her keepers bring her more cake? #RoyalPanda

How's Kate Middleton gonna get thru the next 9 months without her mid-afternoon glass of white wine and late afternoon glass of white wine??

Remember that one time when America literally fought a war to not have to care about royal babies?

What does it say about me that more than one person texted me this morning to tell me that Kate Middleton is pregnant?

If Prince William and Kate Middleton have another son and name him Fred, their two children will be Fred & George. #RoyalBaby

Look, I know I put up a fuss about the first royal baby being "Prince George", but since we're here now, I hope the second is named Rupert.

So glad Royal Baby Overexcitement got picked up for a second season.

I hope Kate Middleton refers to her lady parts as 'the heir-port'. Too much?

Well, that's put the Edinburgh panda in its place.

Hey media. Stop prefacing Kate Middleton pregnancy w "a rare bit of good news." It's neither rare nor good. It's common and irrelevant.
