The Duchess of Cambridge has been visiting her parents in Berkshire since the weekend, as we've reported , and if she goes into labor there, she might have the royal infant at Royal Berkshire Hospital, where she herself was born.

Warren Buffett, otherwise known as the Oracle of Omaha, tweeted for the third time ever this week to welcome Hillary Rodham Clinton, otherwise known as the former secretary of State and first lady of the U.S., to Twitter.
