8 American Showtunes Prince William and Kate Middleton Should Listen to With The Royal Baby

Here's a first taste of the American-musical-theater canon for the new little bundle of English royalty. logo

We here at TheaterMania were feeling a little outdone by's lovely Shakespearean offering for the nearly existent royal baby. So, feeling a little awkward about not having offered our own advice to Kate and William, TheaterMania came up with a little gift of our own: songs about marriage and children from some of our favorite American musicals.

We like them, and we hope the tiny new Royal Highness will too.

2. "The Baby Song" —I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
