Half a year ... maybe it shouldn´t be taken so literally, it could be one or two weeks more.

Yes, that's why I'm wondering why the reporter on TV seemed so sure about the date. He even repeated the date several times like it came from an official source. Maybe the court is being a bit cunning with the due date; officially announcing it as March 2012, then letting out an official sounding rumor that it is March 12 (to get people focused on that date) when in reality it is sometime in February. The only thing possibly messing with their plan is Prince Daniel letting it slip that they only have six months to go. Well, we'll know eventually...

If my memory is good, princess Mathilde was said to be due in the first half of november when she was pregnant with princess Elisabeth and the baby was born the 25th october. That happened with other royal houses. So it is not an uncommon practise from royal houses to give only a general idea of when the birth is expected rather than the precise due date. By the way, I don't think they would have taken the risk to announce a pregnancy if there was still huge risks of miscarriage (there are still some risks, till the pregnancy's end, but the main risks may be over).

Daniel said "half a year". To me it isn´t as accurate as 6 months. E.g. Half a year could mean 6 months and two weeks also, IMO.

You are right. Some papers stated "six months" but clearly the Prince himself said "half a year". She could be due early February until late March for all we know. I don't believe in some reports that the news was 'outed' earlier than was attended to get the attention away from the King and Prince C-P (Has the attention been on them lately BTW? I thought the whole 'scandal' thing has been slowly winding down or has it?). I don't think the court would risk possible miscarriage and the ensuing publicity the Crown Princess would then face. I'd say she's past the most critical time now. Of course, if we want to speculate more, it could be that she is expecting twins in which case they would have to announce it a bit early before it shows...

Edit: Does anyone remember when CP stated earlier that she would have some very exciting news this Spring? Was she pregnant then or did she think she was? I was just wondering since we had to wait for the exciting news until late Summer.

Also with Christian and Isabella. Christian's due date was announced as November he came mid October and Isabella was announced as may came mid-late April. In reality baby is probably due mid-late February.

I'm not so sure about the scandal. I assumed that it died down and will flair up again when the person accusing the King of visiting sex clubs publishes his book.

As for Carl Philip and the exciting news, when was the interview? If the due date was given as March 12, even presuming that it's deliberately on the late side, Victoria probably wouldn't have known about the pregnancy till late May/early June.

What's the "(boy)" deal all about?

Surely happy, healthy, and a joy to behold is all that is required.

i've supposed that she is at her third months of pregnancy too cos usually they don't announce pregnancies so early before cos it's still a dangerous period! i bet the baby will come in february!

Sorry, I mean Crown Princess Victoria. She said early this year that she would have some exciting news this Spring but then nothing of that sort was released. I do realize she couldn't have been pregnant at the time, at least not with this pregnancy.

I don't remember any statement like this from Victoria. There were strong rumors about her pregnancy around Nobel ceremony withouth any reaction from Royal Court and then again in January, which were denied by Royal Court. But nothing along the lines that she would have any exciting news in spring. There are of course other rumors flying around, but nothing that was confirmed or denied.
