A Princess was due to give birth and word was
out that she had been "snuck" into the hospital
early Saturday morning.

to look half presentable for the world,
not 10 HOURS.
Yes I know some people
argue "Well she does have a make-up
artist and hairdresser on speed dial".
But is that the only reason?
I don't recall Diana looking quite
