I said to my husband, “I wonder if they’ll have a redhead. That would make the queen happy.” He gave me the you’re-cute-when-you’re-crazy look.
I said, “Come on, you know the queen was happy when she got a redheaded grandson. Who doesn’t want redheaded grandchildren?”
At which point the cashier and other customer in line gave me a you’re-just-plain-crazy look.
Really, though, it is time for another redheaded monarch in England. Who was the last one?
Was it Elizabeth I? That long ago?
Or was one of the Hanoverian kings, perhaps George III, a carrot top underneath that powdered wig? This lock of his grey hair looks like there is a slight reddish hint to it.
I don’t really follow the royals, so I’ve no idea if Kate Middleton has any red headed relatives, thus increasing the chance at a ginger haired heir, but if they do, you heard it here first.
Any baby predictions for William and Katherine? Boy or Girl? Blonde, brunette, or redhead?
