    The newest member of Britain's royal family, due to make an entrance later this month when Prince William's wife Kate gives birth to the couple's second baby, will be taking on one of its toughest roles – life as "spare to the heir". Some 21 months after the birth of Prince George to a global fanfare which made him one of the most famous babies in the world, the hugely popular royal couple are due to celebrate the arrival of a younger brother or sister in the next few weeks. George, born 21 months ago is expected one day to be monarch following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth, his grandfather Prince Charles, and his father. "I think the difficulty is just that one thing - that you never quite know if you're going to be called upon to become king, or instead have what you if you're being really cynical could say a relatively pointless life," royal historian Hugo Vickers told Reuters.

    New British royal baby faces tricky life as the 'spare' Fri, Apr 10, 2015

    By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - The newest member of Britain's royal family, due to make an entrance this month when Prince William's wife Kate gives birth to the couple's second baby, will be taking on one of royalty's toughest roles -- life as "spare to the heir". The "spare" role is an undefined one that allows more freedom than that accorded to a future king or queen. "You never quite know if you're going to be called upon to become king, or instead have what you, if you're being really cynical, could say is a relatively pointless life." Both the queen's grandfather George V, whose elder brother died aged 28, and her father George VI, whose elder brother Edward VIII abdicated to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson, were "spares" who did become monarchs. For those for whom the top job never comes, life as a "spare" is not easy. More »

    BANGKOK (AP) — The big topic of conversation in Thailand is martial law. Technically it's gone, but in reality it's still there. On Wednesday, Thailand's junta lifted martial law, which was imposed in the run-up to their May 22, 2014, coup — but then quickly replaced it with another set of draconian laws innocuously called "Article 44." But make no mistake — 10 months after staging the coup, a military junta is still ruling Thailand, essentially with absolute power. More »
