British woman’s hilarious interview about the royal baby is going viral: ‘Absolute TV gold’
Baby Sussex is finally here!
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been patiently awaiting the birth of their first-born child — as have the masses of royal watchers, who began camping outside Windsor Castle last week, when speculation arose that Meghan Markle could be nearing her due date.
And now one particularly enthusiastic fan is going viral for her hilarious, baby-balloons outfitted interview about the highly-anticipated birth announcement.
Sky News broadcast live from outside Windsor Castle, where Meghan and Harry plan to raise their child, to talk to Brits as they awaited more royal baby news from Buckingham Palace. That’s when a reporter approached the woman, from Wales, who was holding twin-baby balloons — one with a fair complexion, the other brown.
When asked about what her decorations were meant to represent, the unnamed Welsh woman struggled to explain the difference in complexion of her baby balloons. “They do sell Afro-American babies now of ethnic minorities— ethnics, ethno...” the woman stuttered. “I can’t say the words, sorry.”

The Sky News reporter went on to ask the woman how long she thought Markle might be in labor.
“I have no idea. I’ve never been in labor, I’ve only voted Labour!” she responded, laughing, noting that she had traveled from Wales in the early morning hours to make it in time for the arrival of the royal baby— or babies.
“Twins! Twins!” the woman hilariously replied when asked about the possible sex of the baby. “Somebody sabotaged my twins in my absence to go to the lady’s loo!”
Posts of the unidentified woman’s interview online have people “howling with laughter,” according to Twitter, where one observer is calling her the “best bit of telly on the royal baby.” One post of her interview with Sky News has garnered over 150,000 views online.
“Jesus wept I’ve only just realized she says ‘Afro American’ wow,” wrote one Twitter user. Another poked fun at her balloons, criticizing the different complexions. “Did she think Meghan was giving birth to cats? They both come out the same colour, lady,” another user commented.

“‘I’ve never been in labour, I’ve only voted Labour’ ... is the only part you need to know,” one Twitter user responded.

While many poked fun at the eccentric royal watcher, others praised the unidentified woman as an “icon,” and suggesting she become the new royal correspondent.

In the early morning of May 6, Prince Harry and the Duchess welcomed their first child, a baby boy. While the royal couple has yet to name their son, they did reveal that he arrived at 5:26am GMT, weighing 7 pounds and 3 ounces.
“The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives,” the birth announcement said. “More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”

In an interview with press, Prince Harry, who was reportedly at his wife’s side for the birth of the baby, already gave a heartwarming response to the birth of his first son and the mother of his child. “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension,” Harry said. “I’m so incredibly proud of my wife.”
The royal family members including the Queen, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are “delighted with the news” of the birth of the baby boy, who is now seventh in line to the throne.
