Horse-faced brood mare Kate Middleton has given birth to another boy. Doctors say that she is doing well and although she ate the rest of her litter, one male did manage to survive.
The pale princess will now be rested for another few months, then she will again be inseminated by the best semen money can buy (not as some believe by her husband William, who is a castrato). That brings her total number of offspring to three out of a planned seven. It is hoped that at least one of them can be sold for a profit, and that the others may themselves become babymakers like Kate.
Kate has previously produced two litters, each producing only one living offspring. It is unclear whether the others were also eaten by their mother, or if the most media-friendly were chosen to survive.
The Queen said, "This human farming lark really is a messy business."
