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.
