With Kate Middleton weeks from delivering, it seems like the whole world has got Royal Baby Fever. From the supermarket checkout line, to just about every website I navigate to, to even my personal email inbox, everywhere I look there are countdowns until the day the Duchess gives birth and what to expect when she does (I swear I didn’t sign up for a single one of those emails — they just started happening).
So it felt kind of like kismet when I unearthed this thirty one year old edition of LIFE Magazine during my yard sale last weekend and noticed the headline across the top: PRINCESS DI’S ROYAL PREGNANCY. Could it be that I had just stumbled across this timely bit of ephemera from the gestation of the man who most likely one day will be King? Indeed it could, because indeed I did. I knew my hoarding would one day pay off in some small fashion. CARPE DIEM.
All that in mind, I thought you might take a stroll down memory lane together and compare and contrast theRoyal Baby Watch of 1982 to the Royal Baby Watch 2013. Fun, right?
