They've said mid-month, which it isn't yet. Plus with the fact that they haven't given an actual date and babies can come early or late, we really don't know when it's expected beyond July.

I'm sure the press who have lined up are hoping it's sooner rather then later. The helicopter being on standby is a good sign and I can see why it's at his place although one article said he would probably drive as it would take as long anyway. I think as long as he get's there in time he and Kate don't care how he get's to the hospital. Mid July has always been said but babies will come when they want too could be early could be late.

Kate Middleton due date: Prince Wlliam has helicopter on stand-by ahead of arrival - Mirror Online

So July 13th or 14th, unless baby is late. I don't see anything happening before then. Kate is staying at her parents.

This article made me angry. Now she has to be the model of motherhood as well as the acme of sartorial choice, wifely actions, public speaking, frugality, home decor, makeup, hairstyle, etc.

Articles like this set the press up to be able to critique her every choice. Never mind that William own half of any silly "model modern" burden. Never mind that parenthood is a skill that is learned by doing.

Why does society insist on asking people to be perfect, when NO ONE EVER IS.

Another slow news day.

Oh and re: obstetrician Marcus Setchell and his specially-encrypted communication device, I have to believe that when he answers that special phone and takes off for the hospital, everyone around him will know what's up? I don't think "I'm going out to pick up some chicken curry" will pass as an excuse. LOL

Maybe they can some sort of bat signal from Kensington Palace to let us know it is time.

There was a story in the Mirror saying the Lupo was going to pick the baby's names by picking names placed on the ground in front of him sort of like Paul the octopus during the last World Cup.

I've been trying to think of a nickname for the secret agent phones, but the best I could come up with is the brat phone - and I do not think W and C will raise a brat - so that's not working.

Its a wonder the stress of those last few points did not cause her to go into labour.

That last game was nerve wracking. It could have definitely induced labor or maybe broken Will's hand. :)

It was a great winning moment. I think Catherine was watching and probably on the edge of her seat. I see James & Donna was at the game.
