‘Stockholm Syndrome’: Twitterati mock ‘hysterical’ reaction to birth of 3rd #royalbaby
Kate Middleton went into labor just before 6am this morning. Now crowds of loyal fans and journalists are anxiously waiting outside the private wing of a hospital in Central London to get a glimpse of the newborn heir – the fifth in line to the throne.

A woman giving birth to a baby was soon trending on Twitter, causing the social media giant to be flooded with people asking for #royalbaby to be suspended indefinitely from their feed. One user tweeted the “obsession” is “really really sad.”

A lot of people said the Tory government – as well as the opposition – would be rejoicing at the fact the spotlight has been taken away from them for a while. While a likely republican did not hold himself back when he claimed Britons are affected by Stockholm syndrome.
