Personally I am not a Royalist so for me this is just news of another mouth to feed. But I dare say that some of you may want to wish the couple well. If so then this is the place to do so.

Wonder how they are going to manage as I believe you only get family allowance for the first two children.

But of course maybe I got that wrong.

As with any young(ish) couple.

I wish them the best of luck

Not if one of them is earning over £60,000 . See

Higher earners

He or she will pay enough extra tax to cancel out any benefit for more the 2 children.

Should provide employment for another nanny or two.

It does seem a little unfair that a two income family can earn up to £100k and still receive child benefit, while a single income family loses any benefit at £60k.

I don't think that the level child benefit will be going through their minds!

One way or another we'll be supporting another one.

Goog luck to them, it is the endless media cover that will go on and on and on that I am sick of. We are still getting Princess Di every day after 20yrs of it.
