Royal baby, royal yawn

So, it's day three of the media hype around the birth of the royal baby. People just cannot contain their excitement. 

There's a part of me that wants to respond to everyone who's jumped on the hashtagroyalbabyboy bandwagon with #calmdownitsnotYOURbaby. But based on the sheer volume of baby-blue-blood support right now, that would have no effect. 

Even the jokes have become a bit stale now with no real original content rearing its royal head. There are only so many times you can make Lion King, Game of Thrones and Harry Potter half-blood prince references.

In the hope of repackaging those jabs, some people took to Instagram for some illustrative humour. Let's settle in for a quick round-up of the most popular shares via Instagram and Twitter.
