Prince Harry and Dutchess Meghan announced this morning that they are expecting a baby next spring. The couple were married earlier this year.
For some reason, people seem to be obsessed with the royals and when the news broke, Twitter exploded with excitement.
My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting a baby in the Spring. Wishing them all the best. https://t.co/nnneVi8rBO

It also brought out the conspiracy theorists.

The next princess/prince of the British Royal Family is also technically eligible to be elected President of the United States, and every season of Game of Thrones has taught me this is the way we will somehow get dragons.#RoyalBaby

And the naysayers.
#RoyalBaby While we're still reeling from stumping up £2m for the wedding of one parasite who performs no 'royal' duties, we get hit with the news that there will soon be another freeloader for taxpayers to support. Meanwhile, homelessness and food bank use continue to increase.

When you’re getting excited about the #royalbaby remember that 4.1 million children in Britain currently live in poverty. That’s 30% of all children. Cold houses, unwashed clothes, not enough to eat, too embarrassed to invite friends round, poor health, curtailed life chances.

The #RoyalBaby was higher up the news agenda than flooding killing 13 people in France and Caudrilla starting fracking operations in Lancashire.
By all means splash it over celebrity gossip magazines for those who are interested, but it’s not news.
