Duchess of Cambridge's baby a 'new beginning'

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby is a "new beginning" for the monarchy, according to one royal commentator.

It's very important for the monarchy. This is the way forward. This is the first child who will be an heir to the throne whatever sex they are. It's a new beginning... I think it's wonderful. They must be really, really happy about this. It's the culmination of a terrific year and what Kate really wanted - to get pregnant in a Jubilee year.

– Ingrid Seward, Editor-in-Chief of Majesty magazine
