    To

    I have some question about the meaning of the preposition "to":

    ( world.time.com/2013/07/22/its-a-boy-the-duchess-of-cambridge-gives-birth-to-a-son/ )
    "An easel is seen in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace to announce the birth of a baby boy to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at St. Mary's Hospital in London on July 22, 2013."

    Does it mean the announcement was made TO the Duke and Duchess?

    Hello, clone of banned user. Why on earth would anyone announce to a couple that they have just had a baby? I'm pretty sure they already knew that!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
