Front Page Spreads Celebrate Will & Kate’s Baby News [PHOTOS]

December 4th, 2012 // Leave a Comment

While this God-awful image made front page news (nice, NY Post), other publications chose to toast the royal couple.

The Daily Mail put out a historic 14-page spread on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby news with the caption “A Nation’s Joy,  A Husband’s Nerves.”

The Sun‘s cover is pretty swell (“Kate Expectations”), but the Daily Star wins for their superweird photo of a baby William with a wig on.

While Catherine is regaining her strength at King Edward VII hospital (she and William are “immensely grateful” for the well wishes, according to St. James’s Palace), the Commonwealth is moving ahead with eradicating male primogeniture, which allows a son to leapfrog his older sister in order to become sovereign.  

Last October, Commonwealth leaders did agree to change the succession laws.  The BBC’s Peter Hunt reports:

The law has not yet been altered but a Cabinet Office spokesman said formal consent was expected “very shortly” and ministers have indicated that the legislation will apply to any royal births from the date of the leaders’ decision.

What Kate Wore shared this photo that Vanity Fair editor Jessica Diehl snapped of a newsstand full of papers.  Baby fever ’round the globe, I tell you.

Take a spin through the gallery to see the best front page art from around the world.
