Newsreader couldn't care less about royal baby due date

A newsreader announced the ‘breaking news’ live on TV which revealed that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their third child in April.

However instead of being excited about the royal baby news, he couldn’t have come across less interested if he tried.

BBC's Simon McCoy interrupted the broadcast to let viewers know that Kensington Palace had released a statement about Kate’s due date.

“Now, baring in mind that they announced that she was pregnant back in September and it was thought that she was around two or three months pregnant, I’m not sure how much news this really is,” he said.

He went on to extend his sarcasm, claiming people better prepare for the imminent arrival now.

"But anyway, it's April so clear your diaries, get the time booked off 'cause that's what I'm doing,” he said.

It comes after Kate Middleton and Prince William announced in September that they would be welcoming a third baby into their family.

They are already parents to four-year-old Prince William and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.
