The British Royal House has officially announced the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her third child
However, the “insignificant” detail they omitted to mention was the fact that most British citizens are not exactly delighted to hear that Prince William and Kate Middleton are about to expand their family.
The negative reactions appeared almost immediately after the news broke
According to Mirror, the news was not well received by citizens given that the Conservative Party members have introduced a limit for the number of children of whom parents can receive state support.
Parents receive about £2.300 per month as a child-raising aid for the first and second-born.
The third child of a family does not receive material support from the state.
Of course, there are some extraordinary situations where this law does not apply
If the mother can prove she has been raped or the child has come to the world through an abusive relationship, she will receive the amount of money mentioned above.
“The Conservative Party’s logic is flawed. He congratulates Kate and William for his third child, but at the same time refuses to give support to ordinary families who have the same number of copies as the royal couple”, wrote a user on Twitter.
“If Kate was poor, a common person, she would not have received money for her future child. However, we continue to contribute to the well-being of the Royal House”, wrote another user.
