Tina Brown says Kate did ‘perfect’ and ‘traditional’ thing by having a boy


The Daily Beast editor Tina Brown praised the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton for having a baby boy on Tuesday’s Morning Joe.

“Once again, she does the perfect thing. Although there’s the constitutional change that we can now have a girl as the firstborn to be the monarch, nonetheless she does the traditional thing and she gives us a prince, she gives a king. Let’s face it, the queen will be thrilled. She and the duke of Edinburgh, much as they would have said they’d be fine with a girl as the firstborn, they really wanted a boy and they got one!”

Brown called the turnaround from “10 to 20 years of marital mayhem” of Prince Charles to the beloved love match between commoner Kate Middleton and Prince William “extraordinary.”
