Now I'm even more curieus to the baby of Kate and William. I feel now how they will probably will feel when their baby is born, it turns your live upside down, but it's wonderfull!!

Congratulations on the birth of little Jakob.

So I'm back from my short holidays. Thank you Catherine for waiting for me!

My guess is that a little prince will be born tomorrow (22nd)

elisabetteke Congratulations! Be healthy little Jakob!

EDIT: Could someone give me links to live streams please?

Has anyone reported seeing a bright star shining in the sky above KP or St Marys? Anyone happen to pass 3 wise men on camels riding along the highway into London?

I had a pleasant and amusing encounter today with a lovely English lady from Worcester. We were waiting for a bus in Switzerland, and we fell into casual conversation. She had been out touring all day, and after a few pleasantries, she said, "Has there been any news about Catherine's baby? I've not heard anything since the BBC news at 8 this morning."

Of course, I was able to assure her that it was status quo, and in a very few minutes she told me the history of her family, one of whom emigrated to Canada a century ago, and what he did and whom his daughter married.

And then she explained that Worcester was the site of the final battle of the Civil War between the King's men and the Parliamentarians, and how the soldiers now swear their allegiance to the Queen so that no politician can tell them to overthrow the government, and so on, and she never paused for breath. She was quite elegant and charming, and she sure could talk! When we parted, I told her I would think about her when the baby was born.

Not yet, but I have already wrapped the myrrh in some baby wrapping paper with a smart baby blue bow.

When you think that this child may not make its entrance for another week, everyone will really be twitching and bleary-eyed. Hopefully, he/she will see the light of day before Great-Grandma hightails it to Balmoral this Friday!

And I think I spotted some shepherds and sheep slowly making their way toward the Lindo Wing....

My fiance informs me on all things royal too, only the sad thing is, I already know about it before he tells me (following all these things on twitter, facebook, and here really helps). Of course I try to not let it slip that I know already, so he doesn't feel foolish. He knows I'm a royal watcher, and because he majored in history in college, understands a lot of what's going on.

I can tell you, that my boss will not be sympathetic at all, but my TAs will be. They know I'm on pins and needles, waiting for the big announcement. We're not allowed to keep our cell phones on at work (I keep mine on 'vibrate'), so it's very hard to sneak a peek and see what's actually going on.

Lucky you. I wish I had your boss.

Aww! How sweet! You let him think he's given you some news. When my husband tells me things about the royals, I already know, too, but I don't hesitate to tell him so!

Perhaps shepherds would be more appropriate.

We have to wait thirteen days for the Epiphany, when lowly wise men will bow before Baby C.
