Brands stoically salute the coming of yet another royal baby
There is a new royal baby in town, courtesy of the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge.
Born on Monday afternoon was a third royal child, a yet unnamed boy at St Mary's Hospital, London, who follows George and Charlotte in the line of succession.
Spiraling around the expected media frenzy was a topical event that brands could 'organically' inject themselves into. There are markedly fewer than Royal Baby mark one and mark two received - it is worth noting that sequels are always more difficult.

Furthermore, brands may have cooled off on hitching a bandwagon to Twitter's trends in recent years.
Below are some of the more effective tweets on the subject.
