So Diana having 2 sisters and a brother or Mike being 1 of 4 sons doesn't have anything to do with it.

That's not entirely true. Vaginal pH and a women's diet are believed to influence the gender. Supposedly, acidic environments favor the X sperm while alkaline favor the Y sperm. I also remember reading something about a correlation between baby boys and the mother consuming bananas before conception. Just like there is a link between maternal intake of yams and soy and having twins.

So family customs can influence diet. Familial genes can also influence a women's pH.

I predict it will be a girl. I also predict Peter Philips, Harry, and/or Pippa, will be the godparents.

This is an interesting discussion!
I've had 6 children, and all of them I carried a bit differently based on their gender. Boys I carried high; girls low.
So, I am calling this child a girl. I also agree with the poster above who discussed PH and diet. Either way, as long as the child is healthy and Catherine comes through well, I'll be happy!

Late due date EARLY MAY birth for Catherine, suggests BOY.

Do you think one staffer turns to another at the DM and says "So, I hear Kate's pregnancy has been difficult and she's tetchy." And a second staffer says, "I just heard that too." And the third staffer says "You're great sources to say that."

April 25 is Anzac when William will be laying a wreath at the Cenotaph and attending a service at Westminster Abbey with his grandparents. If that was the exact due date he wouldn't have been announced as attending.

Due dates are meaningless, even if that is the correct one.

Uhm, Let's examine those two engagements, shall we??
Both are in town and relatively short in duration and can be easily canceled if that is the day. And as the Queen will be in attendance, the royal presence will more than adequately be represented.
But "due" dates are almost never spot on, just a target, so to speak. If the baby were born even the day before, he could easily still attend the two events and only be away for a few hours at most.

If there is any sort of doubt whether he can attend, it would have not been announced. The engagements that Kate missed in the fall weren't announced beforehand because there was doubt that she could make it. Unlike the Daily Mail, William knows the due date of his 2nd child.

Engagements means nothing... While I think the due date is in late April the baby, for all we know, could well arrive earlier since this one is the second pregnancy... Besides, in 2013 papers wrote the same thing when William took part in a polo match in mid-july, a week or so before George was born

This could have been true if not for the line-up of this engagement. The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh and William. It is very clear that this is a way for him to have an engegement that day if possible and if not there will be no difference in the engagement. He's just a tag-along. I think it first was planned that he would go to Turkey with Charles as reported by Turkish newspapers, but that they changed it to Harry and put William in a less important engagement because of the baby.

Admitted due dates are not my forte but wouldn't the Cambridges and royal doctors been aware of Kate's due date for months?

They know when she got pregnant so they should know when the baby is due. Makes planning engagements much easier

They could also just announced the Queen and Philip and planned for William to attend if he was free. There is no reason to announce that William was going to attend unless it was highly likely that he was going to attend.

The due date is calculated on the first doctor visit - all the doctor does is ask when was the first day of the last menstrual cycle and goes from there - a baby is "due" exactly 40 weeks from beginning of the last menstrual cycle (which means babies are due 38 weeks after they are conceived)

As only about 4% of babies arrive on due date, she could be due on April 25th, and if she's due within 2 weeks of April 25th, either way, that engagement is tentative.

I am sure that really from about April 1 forward, all events for Will can either easily be cancelled with the host, or have a confirmed backup person within the BRF set to attend on a moment's notice. Quite simple.

Yes. But that's general. A baby can be born 2 (or in some countries 3) weeks before due date and not be counted as premature. Same with after. You never go more than 2-3 weeks after due date (depending on country) before getting induced. All these are considered within normal. That means that you have 4+ weeks of "due date" because in the error margin of dating a baby in utero + when the baby wants to come out.

Do you think we will see banks of photographers gathering outside the Lindo wing from the start of April like when George was due?

I doubt this baby will be born at the Lindo Wing this time. Maybe Kate will give birth in a hospital in Norfolk... I guess the palace will release more details as the did with George!

I think so. The media celebrations begin on April 1st.

YES! This is exactly what I was getting at. Even if April 25th is the correct date & I highly doubt it, then the baby could come anytime after April 1 and be considered full term. By the way, isn't the Queen's birthday April 21st? Now wouldn't that be a great day to welcome a new one?

The nearest hospital to Anmer is at Kings Lynn (18 miles away) and I doubt if that will be used.
Cambridge and Norwich are over an hour away from Anmer.

No risks will be taken; her specialist is based in London. I think it's Lindo again.

Even if it's a home birth - it's London IMO
