In France we consider that a baby is premature when he's born at least four weeks before the due date.

In Belgium they speak of a premature when the baby weight less than 2 kg

In France that is 2,5 kg. There is a link between the "prematurity" and the weight of the baby.

No, you're right kelly9480 that Philippe and Mathilde didn't trick us the other two times. The reason why I said Philippe and Mathilde had fooled us, is because a while ago some of us were joking that Philippe and Mathilde couldn't "fool" us anymore by saying the baby would be born in October, because Elisabeth was due for November but born in October, and Gabriel was due for September but born in August. That's why some of us thought their third baby would be born in September and not October. But since the baby hasn't been born yet, some of us are not as "smart" as we thought we were. (Sorry about my "smart" remark. I hope no one is offended, because that's not my intention.:o)

In Denmark it's considered normal if the baby is born two weeks before its due-date, or two weeks after its due-date. I do think the weight also plays a part in determining if the baby is born premature

I also vote for a girl. And if it is, I suppose at least Joséphine or Charlotte included in her name, in memory of her grand-aunt, the late Grand-Duchess of Luxembourg.

It must be a girl, if the princess has been spotted buying pink clothes. In case of names, we musn't forget the memory of mathildes sister and grandmother who died in a tragic way. It wouldn't surprise me if the baby's name would refer to one of those names.

well, good luck to Mathilde (and Phillipe)!!! Let's hope that the child will be strong and healthy and that the delivery will be quick and smooth.

JH on the Benelux board is reporting that Mathilde had a boy named HRH Prince Emanuel Leopold Guillaume Francois Marie.

Sofie on GREMB just reported the same thing. A boy at 13:06 Belgian time. Emmanuel Leopold Guillaume Francois Marie

You were right about that Danielane. It only took about 5 hours from the time Mathilde was admitted to the hospital till the baby was born. Nice for her that she didn't have to be in labour for hours and hours.
