The Great Kate Wait is on and faux news pundit Stephen Colbert is on a royal baby vigil. According to The Wrap it's the biggest event of modern times, Colbert suggests.

Although the popular Irish American pundit has publicly railed against the tyranny of the British monarchy that ruled us and half the globe centuries ago, a royal baby is another story.

On Tuesday Colbert could barely disguise his glee as he awaits whatever the Duchess brings forth: boy, girl, unicorn, hobbit or who knows?

'Kate the Great is three days late, I just can't wait for her to dilate,' Colbert put it.

'When will the heir to the crown, begin to crown?' Colbert added for theatrical effect. At this rate we can't wait for the royal birth just to hear what he has to say.
