It's good that William and Harry were able to be happy for their father and that it is not a strained relationship..and I really don't think Charles would of married Camilla if the boys had objected. He is a good father.

I am sure William will be sad that his mother won't be there. Very bittersweet for him.

Thank you for writing down your thoughts, I feel the same way.
I also appreciate the comment about labeling people, how it makes them angry and defensive, very wise.
This is a very thoughtful group.
BTW my money is on the 18th and a boy!

We're getting closer and closer to my birthday (23rd) but if Camilla thinks it will be here this week I think she is probably correct. I hope this does not mean induction.

I hope the Baby will born on the 17th. The Duchess of Cornwall will love such a wonderful gift on her birthday.

Hmmm... I think the coincidence would give the tabloids a wonderful gift as well. But it's now looking more and more possible as we've been told by the e end of the week....

Imagine how ballistic some people would go - Diana's first grandchild makes its appearance on Camilla's birthday - even more so if it is a girl.

Hoping for the seventeenth, only because it is now the 16th in London. I want this baby to come.

Oh, I can well imagine it. If it happens I plan on opening a bottle of Cabernet before I sit down to read all the commentary on the subject.

It should all be great fun. As much as I am hoping for a prince, a princess born on Camillas birthday might be too great a temptation to resist. I might pour a big glass of Scotch and light up a Cuban cigar to celebrate.

I don't care when the baby comes as long as it's soon. LOL Some will be happy and some won't be if he/she is born on the 17th. I don't think it's a bad thing if it is by the end it is said Diana was at peace with the situation so it's funny that others aren't. I still hope for a girl and I had coffee today with 2 ladies and I asked them what they thought and they both said they thought it was a girl too. As long the baby isn't called North they would be happy. LOL By the end of the week could mean Kate's due date is here or maybe she has visited the Dr and they have said it won't be long now she had a check up last week. That would give them some confidence in thinking it will be here this week.
Are there any pictures of the Queen pregnant? I know back in the old days women generally went into hiding but do we have any pictures of pregnant Princess Elizabeth or Queen Elizabeth? Just wondering I know it wasn't considered the thing to do back then my how things have changed.

It's going to be beautiful that baby Cambridge will grow up surround with a great deal of love from it's parents, grandfathers, grandmother & step-grandmother, uncles, aunt and great-grandparents. This baby will learn about it's late grandmother and how she was a funny, caring, beautiful and loving mother.

The baby will be loved, cared for and supported by family and that's what's important.

I just want this baby to come. At this point I couldn't care less if it is on Camilla's birthday or not. Although, the tabloids would go nuts if that were the case! It's all so silly! The 17th is my mom's birthday so I'd have nothing against the baby being born then. I'm still rooting for a little princess!

There is a thread here with pictures that show Queen Elizabeth Pregnant.

Surely the granddaughter of Diana would be called Compass Rose, if we're going for a directional type name.

Sir Elton can get right on the maudlin lyrics.

He couldn't be more my Grandpa to me than if I were blood-related. And he definitely doesn't treat us non-blood related grandchildren differently than his bio-grandchildren. We're ALL his grandkids.

That being said....I'm sure whatever William (and later Harry) does will be right for him and his family. Every family is different.

ETA- My cousins' kids are in a similar situation- only all the bio grandparents are alive. All it's meant is that they've had more people to call Granny and Grandpa.lol
I had a similar situation in my family my nieces stepbrother called my Mum and Dad his Grandparents and they when asked would include him in the tally of Grandkids they had. Noone thought any differently he was part of the family even though he had no blood link to my Mum and Dad. They still call him their first Grandson.

Im guessing it all depends on the existing relationships and Will and Harry seem close to Camilla and Charles seems close to her Grandchildren so I suspect that they will all get lumped together and treated the same by Camilla and Charles and be the "Grandkids".

If you look at Marys Dads partner she seems very hands on with Mary and Freds brood and it appears to be working out fine.

I would assume that she would be induced if the baby isn't born by the end of the week, usually mothers are at 40/41 weeks. If July 13 was her due date, the Duchess has entered her 40th week or so now. Therefore, yes we would expect a little Cambridge by the end of the week.

But we don't actually know that July 13th was the due date. That was just one tossed out by the media - there has never been an official due date.

If she was due on the 13th and they induce at 2 weeks overdue, she'd be induced in the 27th, but even that's not a guarantee that the baby would come on the 27th.
