The Royal Baby Might Convince Scotland To Stay In The United Kingdom

  • In 10 days, Scotland will vote on whether to stay part of the British union or take on independence, and a theory is floating around that William and Kate’s soon-to-be royal baby could change the vote. Lots of Scots are feeling warm fuzzies over Kate’s pregnancy, and lest we forget, the couple met in Scotland at the University of St. Andrews. Will and Kate even have their own special titles while in Scotland, and more than a few citizens would be pretty bummed if the royal family suddenly became foreigners.
