Prince Ge­orge

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

The baby prince’s birth will ini­tially in­ject bil­lions of rands into that econ­omy. This in­sti­tu­tion costs each Bri­tish tax­payer only £1 an­nu­ally. The royal fam­ily are the sin­gle big­gest drawcard in tourism to Eng­land so they are not ex­actly worth­less – which can­not be said for ours in South Africa .

For crying out loud. It’s the Bri­tish royal fam­ily, not the South African royal fam­ily. There wouldn’t be enough space for all Zuma’s kids on the front page.

I watched the cov­er­age on Sky News. It was a plea­sure to watch.

The new­born, fu­ture king is of course an in­no­cent child. But what about Lord Chan­cel­lor Greg Hal­lett’s re­ports, true or false? – Klaus Borgolte.

You have to ad­mit that the Bri­tish roy­alty are rather dif­fer­ent to South African roy­alty, whose un­seemly an­tics make one cringe.

His Royal High­ness Prince Ge­orge of Cam­bridge – well done Wil­liam and Kate. – Dawn, Ke­nil­worth
