God save the queen — she’s about to get another great-grandchild.
Will and Kate, the duke and duchess of Cambridge, announced yesterday that they were expecting. A “royal source” told CNN that the future dukeling was not yet 12 weeks along.
While British royal babies are born with silver spoons in their mouths — this one will be fourth in line to the throne — not every bundle of joy comes into the world assured such privilege. To the average Joe or Joanne, they can be little bundles of debt, instead. The average cost to raise a child to age 18 is $245,000.
This one’s for the parents
