Prince William to receive paid paternity leave

If there is any justice, this will be the only mention of Kate and Will and their soon-to-be-born baby here on Marketplace, but we couldn’t resist this tidbit. Prince William will be the first member of the British Royal Family to take official paternity leave. He’ll get two weeks paid — which is better than we get over here. The Prince of England will receive $206 for his time off. Not that he needs the money.
