A Brief Look At How The Media Covered The Royal Baby…

Much like yesterday, the news is being dominated by the arrival of the Royal Baby.

We’re not sure whether you’ve managed to catch any of the coverage but it’s been a pretty exciting time for Sky news’ Kay Burley. After nearly giving herself a coronary when she discovered that the baby had been born and was a boy…
