I know that this may not have any real meaning but do you notice something hers?

The Gender of the first Child if the last 7 Queens/Consorts/Princess of Wales:

Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz: Boy
Queen Victoria: Girl
Queen Alexandra: Boy
Queen Mary: Boy
Queen Mother: Girl
Queen Elizabeth: Boy
Princess Diana: Boy
And Queen Victoria was the only of these who had both boys and girls.

I never believe that myths. Its always 50/50, it doesn't matter if the baby is boy or girl, when he/she feels like it, he/she will be born.
(Leonor and Estelle were both born early, just for a matter of fact)

What if Carole Middleton was punking everyone when she allegedly said the baby would be a Leo? She knew that people would assume she meant the zodiac sign. But, in reality, she meant that the baby was a boy and would be called Leo. Sure, Leopold is more of a family name with the Belgian RF but Kate's had her heart set on a little boy named Leo since she saw "Titanic" over and over at the cinema due to her mad crush on Leo DiCaprio.

Why yes, I could write for the Daily Mail...

Ask the experts ----

As we don't really know the 'due date' for sure? Could the doctors, technically, allow Kate to go to a Thursday, 1 August birth, before considering their options?

would that Leo name after Leonardo diCaprio be a sellout to Hollywood? Probably, and so it won't happen on Granny's watch. UK probably would not like a Germanic name like Leopold--at least not in the older population which watches reruns of "Mrs. Miniver" and other WWII dramas. The younger generation of men was decimated in WWI with Germans, too, as we saw in "Downton Abbey" (except that it was worse than in Downton). Not likely to choose a Germanic name. "Leonardo" is Italian but that's not likely either.

In my opinion you should be ashamed if you work for the Daily Mailonline. I have never taken them serious and they have never been accurate or checked for facts (Obviously!) especially after some of their stories from last year (not related to the royal family). But I will say some of their articles on the Ann Curry/TODAY Show fallout were kind of entertaining but they just adding fuel to the fire and not checking for facts and accuracy which they are not known for.

My biggest nightmare for me is going into bed, sleeping, waking up and to read that the baby is born. I want to take part at the forum when the news that Catherine has been admitted to hospital has arrived.

Me too. I also want to be part of this forum also when it announced that Catherine has gone into the hospital, Given Birth and the announcement of the Gender! This is my first Royal Baby Watch since joining this Forum.

I for one hope once the child is born they can somehow keep him or her out of the limelight but for special occasions like they did with james and louise for several years though the situations are very different...cp Victoria may be able to have her baby in the cameras eye more but if kate and will did that...the massive press over kill -esp. in the states- would be obnoxious, even more than it is now

We do have an English version: Leonard. Actually any of these names (Leo, Leon, Lionel etc) would be quite appropriate as they derive from lion, and lions feature in the Royal Arms.

But I disagree that we in the UK would be antagonistic towards a Germanic name. Leopold would be no more unpopular than Albert. These Victorian names are coming back into fashion.

if you want to go obscure, sir lionel from Arthurian legend and a couple of medieval royal ones so it's not that crazy a thought. on that note emma is both trendy and sufficiently royal also.

It appears to be true that Charles did suggest the name "Zara" to his sister, Anne.
