Happy day in the UK with a sad memory

Britain (and it's dominions) are celebrating the birth of the third in line to the throne, The Prince of Cambridge.
 Kate and William have delivered the required heir and the world's media have a new celebrity to fuss over for the next two decades.

Something overlooked by Fleet Street is the fact that Kate's gynecologist is Dr Alan Farthing.  
 In 1999 one morning, Farthing's fiancee left his Chiswick home to return to her own house in Fulham. There an unknown gunman shot her dead at her front door. She was the popular BBC presenter Jill Dando and her murder has become one of the great mysteries of modern times. A local man Barry George was arrested and convicted in 2001 but after two appeals and after a new trial in 2008 George was acquitted.
