There still isn’t a royal baby! American networks sent correspondents to London late last week with the hope of getting some live coverage this week, but so far Kate Middleton is a no-show at the hospital where she is expected give birth.
Those covering the scene have resorted to extreme measures.
NBC “Today” co-anchor Natalie Morales has been knitting baby booties, and, as this Instagram video indicates, is slowly going native.
CNN’s Max Foster cut a video with a clock ticking, as journalists awaiting the baby’s arrival go slowly mad. Fox News Channel’s Martha MacCallum expressed her displeasure on Twitter:
Okay #GreatKateWait everyone going stir crazy over here. Let's hope Baby is not a Leo! Can we get on with this already?!
