FILE - In this July 10, 2011, file photo, Prince William and wife Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are photographed by fans during a visit to the U.S. in Culver City, Calif. 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 by the news 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.
