    On top our tax money, issorait. Majority of families in the UK cannot afford more than 2 children max due to childcare costs.

      @ITK lol … I see you are a troll and I will bite eh like the ‘animal’ I am in my ‘zoo’ … how much is your effing tax? The english monarchy is entitled to 15% of the revenue generated by a £12billion net worth crown estate littered in u.k and all over europe and the crown estate generates around $200million annually … besides willie and kate pay taxes too … you think they didn’t factor in backlash from immigrant taxpayers like you?! Lol you think your opinion matters to them? British royals are thorough people, they do their checks properly … don’t worry taxpayer, their financial status can curb any excesses, taxpayers like you need worry less about misappropriations or payment of additional taxes … I assure you funds for healthcare, power etc won’t be tampered with unlike my ‘zoo’ lol … this is still the wrong forum, your screaming won’t be heard here

      Well, blame it on your ancestors who didn’t fight to rule over any land. What they’re been doing is synonymous to collecting royalties …Imagine, even the word is named after them….lol……

      Without the monarchy there wouldn’t be the Great Britannia. It came with plenty of battles and sword fights. It wasn’t for free.

      I’m sure you’re some immigrant who is now British. …I can understand the original Brits complaining ….even they should blame the birth lottery for not choosing you to be royal …stop hating lol

      Especially ignore you’re an immigrant who is privileged to be let into GB, just stop the feel amonger comments…..congratulate them and move on…go and fight with the leaders of the country that made you leave…..

    I just had a look at comments on Yahoo UK news, many people sure aren’t pleased, lol.

    There’s been ongoing debate about what the royal family costs versus what it contributes. I don’t blame anyone who is vexed – 40% tax for those in that bracket and above is no joke. Last year only, the royal family spent £4.5mil on travel, not to mention the renovation of Buckingham palace £370 mil. So yeah, I get the annoyance, cos at the end of the day, it is funded by each tax paying individual.

    I can’t even tell my gateman how many children to have even though I pay his salary. Tax or no tax, can’t tell Duke and Duchess how many to have also.
    The Queen had 4.

      Your gateman analogy is senseless! You don’t increase your gateman’s salary because he has more children. His salary is his salary. Now madam kate and hubby would take more money from tax payers! Plus she can afford to go on mat leave every year because she doesn’t work! The era of the queen is different most families had that amount then. It’s like you don’t know how people struggle when they want more kids but can’t because of finances

    • Lol

      September 4, 2017 at 3:21 pm

      Wait till you have to pay your gateman 40% of your salary, lol!

    So the Royal Fam is legit funded by UK taxpayers money? Wow. Didn’t know that. My own is that it’s kind of weird seeing someone dropping babies every couple of years in the UK. My idea of how things work there (albeit shortsighted) is that you don’t dare birth more than two children in your entire life because of the cost of living. Maybe she loves children. And of course, free endless money. LOL.

    Huh?! I’m really not understanding this senseless rant by you some of you guys. So Wills and Kate can’t have more kids but Emma and Bob that are on benefits for life can have 20 kids and continue chopping my tax payers money Abi. Mscheew. Congratulations Kate and Wills.

      So many Nigerians like you are so upset whenever authority or anyone higher is challenged or criticised, which has landed Nigeria where it is. Many of the Emmas and Bobs on benefits do work, just lowly paid jobs. And they definitely aren’t living in palaces and travelling all over on your money. Tax payers have every right to declare their opinions. We can visit the royal families and their palaces even if they aren’t living off the tax payers money. Money or not, they are still the royal family and they have the name, lots of land, and all the class advantages. In that case, they should take 100% of the earnings from tourist attractions and live off it. But they spend even more than that. Isn’t that alot of money?

    Kate the goddess of fertility that just went there to be popping kids every year on tax payers money, you’ve been there for how many years yet your impact is not even felt, you only make news when there’s children in the mix….so disappointed….Diana will forever remain the people’s princess, she did not allow the royal family overwhelm her!

    • Diamond

      Your comment struck me. Kate hasn’t made any impact at all. And you forgot in addition to popping kids every now and then, she is only in the news for her dress and accessories.

      Kate has done nothing all her life but wait on Prince William.. waity katy was very fitting. She finished school and didn’t do anything but wait on William.. no job, no career, no nothing… just stuck around. I read she changed her choice of school from university of Edinburgh, and took a gap year to attend St. Andrews when it was revealed William be schooling there. Her mom is such a schemer, and social climber.

      Having a baby is good news, but it is the people’s business because they are paying for it. It would have been more sensitive to wait a little more

    Wow! So much hate over what should be a joyous event..with all the bitter talk directed at the royals, i dare say they contribute their quota to the british economy.. 90% of tourists to tge Uk go there because of the royal family. Not to mention the various charities they are patrons of. If you cant be happy for them, then take your ranting to appropriate channels in the UK

    Classic case of neo-colonial mentality.

    O Nigerians on BellaNaija, what portion have ye with the growing family of the queen of England? You do realize BN just posted this news as FYI. Please reserve your rants and pent-up anger for your own “royals” who don’t need to pop out a baby every 2 years to siphon the country’s wealth. Oshisco plc.

    I can’t understand the beef. It’s not like your taxes will go up simply because Kate had a third child. You’ll still pay what you’ve been paying. Besides better Kate than some ne’er do well who is popping babies for sake of benefits.
