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?

In 1933, that was the sign of the Nazi Salute.

This is taken totally out of context.  Even if she was giving the Nazi salute it was in 1933 when Hitler had only just come to power and no one knew what atrocities would happen. 

frankly it looks like she's about to do a cartwheel!

He has his thumb in so this would not be a Nazi salute.

Prince Charles had a close encounter with an eagle in a flap as he visited a flower show earlier in Norfolk. The Prince and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were meeting the Army Air Corps' mascot, Zephyr, a bald eagle, on the Sandringham estate. In the past the prince was forced to dodge its wings as he handled the bird. Zephyr chose to display the same behaviour this year. The prince said: "That's why I'm not holding him. I've learnt from experience." He added: "I'm keeping well back." The Royals were greeted by thousands as they visited some of the displays.

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.

The Queen has thanked well-wishers at home and overseas for their "touching messages of kindness" as she becomes Britain's longest-reigning monarch. Speaking in the Scottish Borders, the 89-year-old monarch said the title was "not one to which I have ever aspired".

We have to remember that her mother Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother lived to be 101 years old.

Tickets for a street party to mark the Queen's 90th birthday in London's The Mall will cost £150 each, her grandson has announced. Peter Phillips said the Patron's Lunch on 12 June was a not-for-profit event and would have a "carnival atmosphere". Most of the 10,000 guests will be from organisations associated with the Queen, with 1,000 tickets to be released in a public ballot next month. The party will be the culmination of a weekend of national celebrations.
