Duchess of Cambridge expected to give birth at London's St Mary's Hospital where Princess Diana had her sons

Subject: Re: Royal baby birth hospital revealed

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/19/13 at 10:54 am

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have "decided not to find out" the gender of their baby, royal officials say.

The baby will be delivered in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London - where Princess Diana had her sons.

The baby is due in mid-July, and Prince William hopes he will be present if his RAF duties allow.

St James's Palace officials have appealed for an "appropriate degree of sensitivity" regarding the birth.

It is understood he will take two weeks' paternity leave - as allowed by the Ministry of Defence - but royal officials said the length of the duchess's maternity leave is a personal matter for her.

The world’s media have been entrenched outside St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington for weeks now, but the Duchess of Cambridge could yet give them the slip by giving birth in Reading, Berkshire, it has emerged.

Yesterday, the Queen said she hopes the Duchess of Cambridge's baby is born soon, because she is due to go on holiday. The comment was made to a 10-year-old schoolgirl while on a series of engagements in Cumbria. Wiggonby Church of England Primary School pupil Fay Batey asked if the Queen wanted the royal baby to be a boy or a girl. The Queen replied: "I don't think I mind. I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday." According to Buckingham Palace the Queen will soon be heading off to her private Balmoral estate in Scotland, where she traditionally spends her summer holiday.

I'm for George myself.  George VI was the father of Elizabeth II, George V was the founder of the House of Windsor, and St. George is the the patron saint of England. 

I don't think it'll be George, though.  The pundits are guessing William and Kate will want something a little less obvious, but still traditional, such as Philip or Albert.  One bubblehead floated the name Arthur, but I don't think so!

Princess Diana and Charles had similar problems when Wills was born in 1982 – taking a week before finally announcing his name. But sources last night said they did not expect the Cambridges to take quite so long.

The first official photos of Prince George have been released - and, cradled in his mother's arms, he appears as if does not have a care in the world.

Lying peacefully in the arms of the Duchess of Cambridge, the newborn, who is third in line to the throne, seems to be sleeping, oblivious to what is going on around him or the duties that will one day be expected of him.

The Duke of Cambridge stands to the left of his wife in both photographs, looking on proudly with a protective arm around Kate.

The intimate pictures were taken by Kate's father Michael Middleton in a shady spot of the garden of the family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, earlier this month.

Prince George christening: Official pictures released

http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/70699000/jpg/_70699472_jasonbell3.jpg
The image was among the official portraits to mark the christening of Prince George

The Queen has been pictured with three future kings - the first such image of royal succession for nearly 120 years.

The monarch is shown with her son, the Prince of Wales, grandson, the Duke of Cambridge, and great-grandson, Prince George, to mark the royal christening.

It echoes a 1894 image from the future Edward VIII's christening, showing him with his father, grandfather and great-grandmother - George V, Edward VII and Queen Victoria.

The pictures were taken by Jason Bell.

'Windsor dynasty'

http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/70699000/jpg/_70699476_eddie8.jpg
The picture echoes an image taken at the christening of the future Edward VIII

The four official portraits were taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House following Wednesday's ceremony at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace.

BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said the images showed the Windsor dynasty on a scale not previously seen.

The reigning monarch and three future kings will, in all probability, occupy the British throne for considerably more than 100 years.

It is the "four monarchs" photograph that can genuinely be said to have historic significance, said our correspondent.

The images were captured by Bell, who is renowned for his images of high-profile figures like Sir Paul McCartney, actress Scarlett Johansson and former England footballer David Beckham.

Prince George wears a replica of the intricate lace and satin christening gown made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal, in 1841.

The sofa which the royals sat on for the pictures was designed by Thomas Chippendale and is part of a range dating from about 1773.

It is thought to have been commissioned by the Duke of Gloucester, George III's brother.

The royal couple met fellow new mothers and fathers at Government House in Wellington along with not-for-profit childcare organisation Plunket. The parents were selected to reflect the diversity of New Zealand society. Eight-month-old Prince George appeared to remain calm even though there were tears from some of a similar age.

Prince George has been photographed walking with the help of his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

His tentative steps were captured on Sunday as princes William and Harry lined up on opposing sides in the Jerudong Trophy at Cirencester Park Polo Club.

It is believed to be the first time the baby prince has been seen taking to two feet in public.

George - who is third in line to the throne - will turn one next month.

He was also seen playing football on the sidelines of the charity polo match.

It was an "impromptu family day out", Clarence House said.

Lawyers for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked a photographer to "cease harassing" Prince George and his nanny.

A Kensington Palace statement said they were prompted to take action after the man was spotted near the 14-month-old in a central London park.

It said: "No parent would tolerate the suspicion of someone pursuing and harassing their child and carer."

The couple are not taking legal action at this stage.

BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said palace officials believe the photographer's actions amounted to "stalking" and that lawyers were seeking an assurance he would desist.

"If they do not receive these assurances that this behaviour will stop, they will then consider options of legal action," he said.

Our correspondent added that the man had been warned off last week by royal protection officers and that he had also been spoken to "over a number of years" about his behaviour.

And she won't be pushed aside by any boys since the princess is fourth in line to the throne after grandpa Charles, dad William, and older brother George.  Which pushes great uncle Andrew to sixth position and uncle Harry to fifth position.

When Prince George was born it took a few days to name him. The Queen is expected to visit her new great granddaughter this afternoon, probably that subject of naming will be discussed then amongst the family.

It just occured to me that King Edward I think his name was abdicated his claim to the throne because he wanted to marry a divorcee.  Now Charles *did* marry a divorcee, and was divorced person hisself, was there some kind of royal law changed to make this happen?  Or has Modern times called for Modern solutions and it wasn't that big of a deal anymore?


I know when Andrew married Fergie, many of the royal subjects (especially women) dyed their hair red like her  (I was tempted,  but still young at the time.)  Was there a trend of dying their hair brown when William married Catherine?

The exact moment the Queen passes Victoria's milestone is not known because there is no precise time for the death of her father George VI - who died in the early hours of February 6, 1952. But it is thought he died at 1am, so at around 5.30pm the Queen will make history with Buckingham Palace calculating she will have reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and about 30 minutes.

Normally the Queen does not discuss politics...

Buckingham Palace has complained to the press watchdog over the Sun newspaper's article claiming the Queen backed "Brexit" from the European Union. The Sun quotes anonymous sources, one of whom claims to have witnessed a "bust-up" between the Queen and pro-EU former Deputy PM Nick Clegg in 2011. It says the Queen told Mr Clegg the EU was "heading in the wrong direction". Earlier, the palace insisted the Queen was "politically neutral". Mr Clegg called the story "nonsense". But the Sun said it "stands by its story, which was based upon two impeccable sources and presented in a robust, accessible fashion". "The Sun will defend this complaint vigorously," the newspaper added.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-37908096

Prince Harry has confirmed US actress Meghan Markle is his girlfriend, in a statement from Kensington Palace attacking the media for subjecting her to a "wave of abuse and harassment".
The statement said the couple were "a few months into a relationship" and it was "not right" that Ms Markle should be subjected to such treatment.
It said the prince rarely took formal action over "fictional stories".
"But the past week has seen a line crossed," it added.
In recent days a number of newspapers have carried front page stories about the actress, best known for playing Rachel Zane in the TV drama Suits.

Prince Harry praised for Meghan Markle statement

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-38459162

Prince Harry's statement condemning the press treatment of girlfriend Meghan Markle has drawn high praise from the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project.
Laura Bates, who catalogues women's experiences of gender inequality, said it was "a really important moment".
The Prince "pointing out the inequality being faced by somebody in a position that he would never be in" was "a major positive", the feminist writer went on.
Issued in November, the statement said the US actress had faced "harassment".
"Prince Harry is worried about Ms Markle's safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her," the statement continued.
In general, Ms Bates said, media representation of women had "a very long way to go".
She claimed press coverage of Prime Minister Theresa May had a "sexist slant" and that Hillary Clinton faced criticism during the US presidential campaign that would not have been directed at a man.

Prince Harry has said he is "very glad" he joined the funeral cortege for his mother, Princess Diana. Harry had previously said walking behind her coffin aged 12 was something no child "should be asked to do". He has now told the BBC he doesn't "have an opinion whether that was right or wrong", but "looking back on it", he is glad to have been part of the day. The prince also paid tribute to his father for the way he took care of them after Diana's death in a car crash. "One of the hardest things for a parent to have to do is to tell your children that your other parent has died," Harry said. "How you deal with that I don't know but, you know, he was there for us."

The judge awarded the royal couple 50,000 euros each in damages. She also fined Closer magazine's editor and owner 45,000 euros - the maximum amount allowed. The damages fall short of the 1.6 million euros (£1.5m) sought by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's lawyers.

The papers claim William hinted at it but he just commented to someone that this person had a nice solid name having previously said he and Kate had chosen a solid name.  The tabloids instantly leapt on the coincidence of wording and decided that was a clue!
From Hello Magazine

"When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge proudly introduced their baby son to the world on Monday following his safe arrival, William told reporters that they would "very soon" to hear the name chosen for the little Prince. And while William seemingly hinted that the newborn may be called Alexander during his public engagement at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday to attend the Anzac Day service, an official announcement is yet to be made - despite both Prince George and Princess Charlotte's names being announced two days after their arrivals. This could well be because the couple didn't want to overshadow such a important day as Anzac Day."

Meghan Markle's father will walk her down the aisle when she marries Prince Harry, the BBC understands. The US star's parents will arrive the week before the wedding to meet senior royals including the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. They will also meet her fiancé's father, Prince Charles, as well as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Meanwhile, Ms Markle will not have a maid of honour. All of her bridesmaids and pageboys will be children. Ms Markle "has a very close-knit group of friends and did not want to choose between them", Kensington Palace's communications secretary Jason Knauf said. The palace released the new details with just over two weeks until the royal wedding in Windsor on 19 May. Ms Markle will travel with her mother to the church by car while Prince Harry will arrive with his brother Prince William, who he announced as his best man last month. Newborn Prince Louis, who will be three-weeks-old at the time of the wedding, is not expected to be there. But the Duke of Edinburgh, 96, will attend, despite undergoing a hip replacement last month and being absent at other recent royal events. During the ceremony, Lady Jane Fellowes, one of Princess Diana's older sisters, will give a reading in a nod to the Spencer side of the family. The location of the couple's honeymoon has not yet been revealed. But the first royal engagement of Ms Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, will be the week after the wedding.

Those pictures were staged.  He did it because the photos of him that were appearing in tabloids weren't painting him in the best light (because as we all know, when a paparazzi photographs you leaving a liquor store carrying a bag full of alcohol, obviously you're a drunk, low life scumbag who has no right being the father of a future princess).

Put simply, it's an intimate setting that's still fit for a royal. The chapel in Windsor Castle holds about 800 people compared to 2,000 at Westminster Abbey where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tied the knot in 2011. Being inside the castle's grounds, it provides the family with a bit of privacy as the grounds are surrounded by the Horseshoe Cloisters and the Henry VIII gate. In 1984, three-month-old Prince Harry was christened there. It has also been used for numerous royal weddings - the most recent being for the prince's cousin, Peter Phillips,who married Autumn Kelly in 2008. Meanwhile, Prince Harry's father - the Prince of Wales - had his blessing at the chapel after he married the Duchess of Cornwall at a civil ceremony in Windsor's Town Hall over ten years ago. The Earl of Wessex and the Countess of Wessex also tied the knot at St George's Chapel. Meghan and Harry are likely to pose for photographs after the ceremony on the steps outside the castle.

A lot of people care about the wedding and a lot of people also don't care about the wedding.

The British Royal Family are celebrities and we live in a world/society that puts a bunch of attention and value into celebs (whether we like it or not). Naturally, there are going to be a lot of people interested in the wedding.

Nobody is forcing anyone to watch the wedding, so I don't get people who are complaining about it.

It's because Charles wanted to welcome Megan into the family as Harry's choice to be his wife.  Charles didn't get that opportunity because his grandmother and Diana's grandmother played matchmaker even though they really weren't good for each other.  Now he's with Camilla.

The last man to hold the title of Duke of Sussex was Prince Augustus Frederick, the sixth son and ninth child of George III. Like Harry and Meghan, the duke lived in Kensington Palace. He died in 1843, aged 70. Augustus twice married for love, but his father did not approve of either match and so did not give his consent to either marriage. As a result, neither of the duke's children were considered legitimate heirs to his title.

It is a tradition that has been carried on for centuries. Also, often times since they are constitutional royals, they are viewed as unifying figures and symbols of the nation (the UK).

They don't usually get the partisan bickering and divide that presidents and prime ministers receive.

Prince Harry reveals hopes for a baby girl at Invictus Games

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-australia-45943174/prince-harry-reveals-hopes-for-a-baby-girl-at-invictus-games

Prince Harry was assisting a wheelchair athlete at the Invictus Games in Sydney on Sunday when he was congratulated on the Duchess of Sussex's pregnancy. He then let slip his hopes for the sex of the new baby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in the middle of their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

I hope the video works abroad.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46202198

Prince Charles has revealed his love of "groussaka" - his version of the Greek dish moussaka, but with grouse instead of lamb - on the day he turns 70. The Prince of Wales made the comments in the latest edition of Country Life, which he edited to mark his birthday. He also told the magazine about his fondness for red squirrels and how he lets them run around his home. Two new photos of the prince with his family have been released by Clarence House to celebrate the landmark. Other events include a private party at Buckingham Palace hosted by the Queen, who will give a speech for her son. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will also attend a tea party at Spencer House in London to celebrate 70 inspirational people marking their 70th birthdays this year. There will be traditional gun salutes at the Tower of London and Green Park at 13:00 GMT, while the bells will be rung at Westminster Abbey at the same time.

Prince Philip 'deeply sorry' after Sandringham car crash

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47017855

The Duke of Edinburgh has written to a woman injured in a car crash he was involved in near Sandringham in Norfolk to say that he is "deeply sorry". Prince Philip wished Emma Fairweather a "speedy recovery", adding that he was "somewhat shaken after the accident". The 97-year-old suggested he did not see the car she was a passenger in on 17 January because of bright sun. His Land Rover Freelander collided with a Kia driven by Ms Fairweather's friend after he pulled out of a driveway. The duke's vehicle flipped over in the crash, which took place on the A149 near the Queen's country estate, and he was helped out by a passing motorist.
