Royal baby

princeThere was a bit of media interest in the first child of William and Kate.

First I wrote some colour about the media circus outside the hospital, where nothing was happening – online in full here, shortened version in the newspapers.

Then a few days later the labour was announced. I wrote a piece for the web, which was also used (modified) the next day in the newspapers, about the birth being imminent.

Overnight (in Australia) I helped update a live blog which culminated in the birth, then I wrote another about the birth announcement and reaction, for the newspapers the next day.

Finally there was the reveal: online here, and a different, less exasperated one for the next day’s papers and online.
