Im leaving tomorrow for a skiing holiday in New Hampshire which is very exciting as I have never been before. I hope she doesn't have the baby while I am away!
The Prince of Orange was in Rome, two weeks ago, for a congress with the FAO, the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization and he answered (while the microphone was open) on questions by other members of the assembly: "The baby will be born in the second half of April".

The biggest clue to when the babies were really due before was when her mom arrived from Argentina. That would probably be a tip off this time as well.

According Prive (gossip mag) Maxima's parents are in The Netherlands at the moment. But Prive is not really a reliable source

The Prince and Princess have made known that they are not interested at all in the gender of the new royal infant. They just hope on a healthy child.

In contrary to the two previous times, the new royal infant will not be shown to the world the same day. Reason: the two previous times Princess Catharina-Amalia and Princess Alexia had signs of undercooling due to the expostion so soon after their birth.

There will be no gunsalute since it is no future Heir, but the premier has requested all public buildings to flag with the national flag and the orange pennant, to mark the festive birth.

There is betting about the gender of the baby. Most betters at brokers predict a Prince to be born.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

The need to rest depends on the pregnancy. Some women need more rest than others. My mother was in high activity until I was born...But my sister-in-law must stop some days before given birth. Every person is a world apart... I see Princess Maxima healthy and happy, and this is the principal thing.

I believe that princess Máxima is very tired, but she has a double responsability: one with her health, and the other with the people, so I think she's gonna stop when she believes she needs to.

I was reading the above posts and great pics from bozena and thanks Henri for translating some of it. I really got stuck on the betting part. Wonder what the Queen and the rest of the family thinks about it.

Ah... the betting is part of 'building up the atmosphere'. I think the Queen and the royal family just smile about it.

In the evening of April 27th 1967 Her Majesty The Queen was called away from a State Banquet. She had to excuse to the King and Queen of Nepal and rushed to the city of Utrecht, in the middle of the country. The State Banquet was left into the good hands of her spouse, Prince Bernhard.

In the Academic Hospital in Utrecht, Princess Beatrix gave birth (via caesarean) to a son. The nation was wild enthusiast. A Prince! A Prince! The royal infant is a Prince! There is a Prince of Orange again! The guns thundered 101 times (instead of 51 times for a Princess). Bells were tolling and flags raised.

Later, in an interview, Queen Juliana told about her mixed feelings. Beside the joy for her first grandchild, she felt the wild roar and joy outside for a Prince as a blow in her face. What about her mother [Queen Wilhelmina], her grandmother [Queen Emma, the Regentess] and what about she herself or her eldest daughter [Princess Beatrix] ? Were these ladies not meritorious and subservient to the best interests of the Kingdom? The Queen knew that the joy was well-meant and natural, but she could not avoid a sadness in her.

She never said that she was saddened that the nation rejoiced that it was a prince, but by 1 particular woman who cheered when she arrived at the hospital that it was a prince (this caused her to remark what you said indeed). If you read the newspapers of those days there was rejoice that an heir was born and it was mentioned that it was the firsat male heir since Prince Alexander died (youngest son of King Willem III and Queen Sophia), but they are not particulary rejoicing his sex.
