US reacts with joy to royal baby news - Article Photos 2/2

FILE - In this April 29, 2011, file photo, Sandy Weimer, wearing tiara, and Cathy Dettman, left, attend a royal wedding "hat and pajamas" party at the Cameo Cinema in St. Helena, Calif., where more than150 people filled the theater in the middle of the night to watch a live broadcast of the royal wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton. The palace announced Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, that Prince William and wife Kate are expecting their first child_and it seems at times that Americans may be more enthralled than the Brits. There are several reasons for the American public’s pleasure in Kate’s news, manifested not only by the good wishes sent by President Obama but also by the breathless news coverage and the general good will toward the couple.
