If they have a name picked in advance, for either boy or girl or both, they may change it when they see the baby. Some people do this, thinking that the baby does not look like a "........." Which is a little foolish because babies don't always look the same way as they will look in a few years. Sometimes I wish I hadn't settled on Charlie, although he looked like a Charlie to me. Because when he grew older he never used "Charles". He became Charlie-------Ph.D. His boss is also Charlie......Ph.D.

Not always true Kataryn - Her Majesty the Queen found the Duke of Edinburgh, who has been her 'strength and stay all these years'.
And Prince Charles found Princess Diana!

Prince Charles did not "find" Lady Diana.

And I do agree with you.

Just pointing out the difference so that people can pay attention as to whether the source was a statement (and who issued it) or whether royal sources are quoted.



And just for the record, I don't believe they know.

I'm wondering now if Will's favorite wombat is still in good shape.

That was the theme I chose for my son, 25 years ago. My grandmother had given me a set of Winnie the Pooh books for my 5th birthday.

I didn't know Wills had a toy wombat. I remember pictures of a koala bear from several pictures, but no wombats. It would be so sweet if both, William and Catherine passed some of their favorite childhood toys on to their children.

It might be my failing memory but I seem to recall that at one time Will's favorite toy as a wee one was a wombat. I do believe that Wombat was a nickname his parents called him and once he entered the service, Charles referred to him once as Combat Wombat.

You may very well be right in regards to a wombat toy, and I definitely remember him being nicknamed 'Wombat', as well as the instance you've referred at the end of your post (that one made me giggle).

One stuffed toy we can be almost positive that will be in the nursery is the penguin that Wills got in the Faukland Islands last year. :)

At least we know this is a 50/50 -the woman heard a "d". So, she will be 50/50 right until the little one arrives.

I think a lot of people were asking Catherine about the baby that day. A lot of people were talking over each other and children were screaming. I bet a lot of people thought they heard all kinds of things. All kinds of words that started with d's, b's and c's. A couple of people told the media what they thought they heard her say and the press took off with it.

You're right, it's not always true, but I meant in general. Just think about the different perception of the York girls and the Wales boys. Or how "playboy prince" Albert was accepted, but his sister Stephanie, who was wild as well, got a very different label...

So now on twitter everyone is talking about how there is exclusive footage of Kate that proves she didn't say 'D' from the grimbsy paper.

But, someone here posted this link Duchess of Cambridge: Moment Kate Middleton nearly gave the game away | Mail Online and it certainly sounded like she said 'D'.....now what does that stand for...we will find out in July.

But, before the 'D' madness even began people on twitter heard video of her say we don't know and were saying I don't buy that. So now its like they are all silent on that quote...but, they need to realize there IS a 50/50 chance she may have a girl.

I feel like this isn't even a story anymore people are just continuing it because there is not much other big news.

The funny thing for me is I always thought William would make a slip if they do know the sex...which he still might. So, if they don't know they should stick to that...otherwise there is a good chance one of them are going to slip.

BTW, excited to join this forum..people on this one seem very nice and friendly.

The D video sees Catherine say that they 'don't know'. As far as I am aware she hasn't publicly said anything else.

It a clear video where you can hear everything she said (the video is in the first link, the lady who took the video talk about it in both newspaper)

I don't think the media (beside those two) will pick up on it.

I was too slow apparently cause I just wanted to post the link to the video as well. :-) I agree this was all pure imagination by this woman. Kate didn't say anything like our d ... . So much ado by the media about nothing.
