And once admitted, don't expect the birth immediatly
It can take 8 till 12 hours of labour before a firstborn makes his/her appearance.

All this fuss is almost making me broody as well. It's totally silly but...
How do you think she feels?

Okay, just checked in and read through the last three pages. I have one thought:





Clearly, we are all overwrought, myself included. Are you really all watching some guy vacuum? Someone is out there ranting and raving about page 3? How are any new mothers getting any sleep in that hospital?

Is this what happens in Britain when it goes over 79 degrees Farhenheit?

Well yes. Also people start going to their doctors to find out why their skin is turning colour. Sun and heat are not what the UK is best known for,

Do they also start plunging into any and all kinds of water sources like fountains? That's what happens here in the north when the temperatures rise. It's almost like everyone's brain would melt. I can only imagine how it is combined with the royal baby fever!

Nope - its what happens when jouranlists believe what either they have written or their colleagues. There is part of me that is LOVING the fact they are stuck there - they deserve it.

Ι was watching the report in the news bulletin of BBC world, and the presenter who reported from the streets of London, trying to infer the level of people's interest and reaction to the upcoming birth, concluded that natives are almost indifferent, and that it is the tourists, and particularly the Americans that show interest..

Is the perception of those here who live in the UK the same? Are the Brits growing indifferent to the monarchy after Elizabeth? If this is what happens now, it clearly wasn't the case -that I can remember- with the birth of Prince William 30 years ago..

I don't think we are indifferent, but the monarchy is part of our life, our history and I think we are used to royals births, weddings, jubilees and other celebrations. No need to get excited about something that hasnt happened yet, rather like last years Jubilee and even the Olympics which people were not very excited about beforehand. Right now there is nothing happening just reporters talking to other reporters about nothing. Not sure why Americans are so excited about the birth of the 3rd in lne to the throne of the UK though.

Anyway no date has ever been officially announced, so this person clearly does not know what he is talking about anyway.
One could say that about an awful lot that comes out of Ryan's mouth actually. I just hope it's soon, because if the UK is getting the same heat wave we are, then Kate can't be comfy right now.

Half the time they are just repeating what the tabloids are saying and not even doing any fact checking themselves. OR just repeating what is the popular thing to say and not the actual truth.

It's always exciting when a happy and loving couple is expecting a baby. A great deal of people have been watching this couple since the first time they were spotted in public as a couple. Followed the journey of them dating and even the break up. Everyone (I think) got excited when they got back together and was happy when they got engaged. We watched the wedding and followed their progress on their official royal tours and now they are expecting their first child.

It's a very exciting and joyous time for William & Catherine and their families and that joy is spreading all over the world. Although there wasn't any twitters, facebooks and royal forums back in the day, the people were excited when William & Harry were born and it's pretty much the same today.

I know that, but we were talking about something Ryan Seacrest said. He's not known for being the brightest light on the Christmas Tree *and* is responsible for unleashing the Kardashians on the World. That alone says it all about Ryan IMO.

My mom thinks Kate's already had the baby at her parents' house and isn't telling anyone.

I have been expecting such sillieness, just surprised it took this long. Next I expect people will be seeing visions of Diana appearing at the Lindo Wng.

I'm afraid she didn't visit Catherine at all,

@RegalEyes: @HRHDuchesskate The video shows HM visiting the Barbican in London for a concert on one of the nights Kate was in hospital.

The only other royal The Queen has visited is Prince Philip.
