Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first child was all over the news in Ireland (and across the world) but should we be celebrating the British monarchy in this way? 

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was Wednesday's biggest story (as well as some Barr guy?) and even in Ireland, which only won its independence from the British colonizers less than a century ago, people were eager for news of the latest British royal baby.

While it is nice to celebrate a bit of good news once in a while, does Ireland take it too far with their need for news on all-things royal? Some will argue that welcoming a new life to the world is full of joy but is it really acceptable when the baby is born into a family whose privilege came at the expense of the Irish people and millions of others in their colonies across the world.
