When the news of the royal baby broke, I couldn't have been happier.
Pretty soon, I was on the scene, ready to report the whole thing for BuzzFeed News.
A lot of attention was focused on this woman, who appears to have some ceremonial function in your country.
As an Australian, it was an exciting time.
And I wasn't the only one who was excited.
But then, something even more exciting happened...
Everyone went a bit crazy.
Although some people still weren't entirely satisfied.
And then, from out of nowhere, this guy appeared.
No one really seemed to care that he wasn't in any way official.
Though he maybe milked it just a bit.
Anyway, by now everyone was in a party mood.
But I was starting to flag.
By now the press pack were settling in for the money shot – the family exiting the hospital.
Despite my republican sympathies, I found myself getting swept up in the emotion.
But I was still conflicted.
The fact is, it was a strange experience all 'round.
But it would soon be over.
And then they were gone. But had Princess Cambridge melted my stony Australian heart?
