Yes, the reporters are really scraping the bottom of the barrel now! Prince William is my 10th cousin (through Diana's American ancestors), but that is still distant.

Here's a pic that shows her bump clearly....Google Image Result for http://redcfa.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Catherine-Duchess-of-Cambridge-In-Tara-Jarmon-Naomi-House-Visit.jpg
As the mother of two the tell tale sign in the photo is not the bump, but the "padding" that shows up on the hips and backside when a woman is expecting. That is where the extra fat is being stored so a woman will be able to nurse her child after giving birth.

Kate does not have much, but it is there.

I know of a board where the this is the lead story.

This rumour is kind of sad - and about up there with the whole "Harry isn't Charles' child" or "William's swimmers don't work, so Harry fathered the baby" stuff.

While adoption or surrogacy is, of course, an available option to royals, an adopted child or one born via a surrogate wouldn't be eligible to inherit. The only children able to inherit the throne of Great Britain are the legitimately born, blood descendants of Sophie of Hanover. A child who is adopted or born via a surrogate doesn't meet those requirements - an adopted child is not a blood descendant, and a child born via a surrogate does not have two biological parents who are married.

Actually, rumours that a royal baby wasn't actually a royal baby have happened before. When James II's son, James the Old Pretender, was born, it was said that the king's child had been stillborn and another baby slipped in to cover it up so that a Catholic son would one day inherit, instead of James' Protestant daughter.

The bed pan baby idea was one that was so frightening that royal births (up until, I believe Charles' birth) were all witnessed by government ministers so that they could be assured that the child born was in fact royal.

I agree the story is ludicrous......but things would get a bit murky if Williams sperm fertilzed Catherines egg which was then implanted into a surrogate. The biological parents would be William & Catherine, they just would have used a rented womb to carry the child for 9 months,

Everytime I see a Breaking News I expect it to be about Kate going into labour. I don't want to miss this.

There's a couple ways it could go:
- problem's with Kate's womb that causes her to be unable to carry a child, in which case they're renting a womb
- problems with Kate that prevents her from conceiving, that causes them to buy eggs
- problems with William that prevents him from conceiving that causes them to buy sperm
- some combination of the above

I think if a couple rents a womb but the child is biologically theirs then the kid should be eligible for inheriting whatever (thrones, titles, what have you), but it's kind of murky, and even more so if one of them is unable to conceive (especially if it's the royal parent).

yep, I know all about that extra padding around the hips and backside
Also, her face is a lot fuller.

One thing is certain is that this child will be born before 27th July. Doctors will not allow a pregnancy to go over 42 weeks.

I've always found this particularly ironic, considering there were actually around 60 people present at the birth of James II's son, including several government ministers.

I agree. But at the same time perpetuating the rumour was what helped the Glorious Revolution, so there's that.

The people who were behind spreading it were the ones who just wanted to get rid of James and his Catholic family.

We don't know the actual due date, so before July 27th is not a certainty. The due date could be July 20th, for all we know.

LOL I was absolutely shocked when it happened to me. Suddenly I had padding where it had never been before.

So they are really going to Australia and New Zealand With Baby Cambridge? That's nice, but is this arranged on purpose or what?
