It wasn't newsworthy in Sha'ar Binyamin and Yafiz where I had been working until late yesterday. Nobody mentioned the royal couple or anything at all about what was happening in London. The only news our customers cared about was how long the big sale would be going on and if we had the sizes and clothes they wanted to buy. Newsworthy was the fact that we now have child-size modest bathing suits, a two-piece which is a shirtsleeve shirt and shorts for girls. I bought for my older granddaughters literally the minute they had arrived on Sunday. Luckily I was just going to leave for home and waited until they had been readied for sale.
Life in my part of the world has different priorities. I don't think we'll be selling any of those "royal baby souvenirs."
