Online is your best bet but we've seen Catherine out shopping in London so there's no reason she wouldn't buy things personally. Why would they send an employee out with a fake baby bump? Nobody would know who the employee was baby bump or not.

Long, long ago {when i was a student} i had a holiday job @ Harrods. This was before Mr Al Fayed, lost the store its Royal Warrant, by his insane rants against the DoE.

A man was employed by Harrods specifically to take the calls from the Private secretary of the Royal concerned , whizz over to the residence concerned {often an hotel, if the Royals were foreign}, with a selection of goods for them to choose from.

That is how it used to be done, although quite often royals would shop in person... King Olav of Norway was a regular, as was Diana, Princess of Wales.

There was always a ripple of excitement as word spread that a royal had arrived, and was on their way...

As Lumutqueen says, online shopping is probably the preferred option, today.

as they are about to decorate their new apartment at KP, I guess they just asked their interior designer to make a mood book for the nursery and gone off from there. Or maybe auntie Annabel gave some advice?

Seeing how good the Duke and Duchess are with children, I kinda hope they are like the Duggar family of royalty; 19, perhaps 20 little princes and princesses. All with the same initial. True, you do run out of names after, oh, 8, so they can make up some.

Diana, David, Dorothy, Donald, Delores, Daniel, Daphne, Drake, Dannielynn, Dustin, Delphine, Drew, Donnatella, Dristan, Dahlia, Dylan, Delilah, Desiree.

I'm sure the Duggars would be happy to show the Duke and Duchess their routine, and the crowd pleasers like the Tater Tot casserole and such.

How wonderful would that be with 19/20 princesses and princes?

But to pull a Duggar, they have to have W as their first initial, after their father or might choose after their mother.

William: Walter, Wilhelmina, Wilma, Waldo, Whitney, Walfred, Wanda, Wysandra, Waltrina, Wilda, Winona, Waldemar, Wilson, Wayne, Wallis, Wendy, Wilfreda, Wyonne, Wyanet, Wardley.

Catherine: Caroline, Charlotte, Charles, Cameron, Camille, Constantine, Cecilia, Calvin, Caleb, Carissa, Candice, Caitlin, Carabelle, Calista, Corinne, Cloe, Cheriline, Ceara, Ceasar, Christina.

But since Catherine is on her 30s already and I need to be modest, so I'll say 3 or 4 children, I hope they don't pull a Diana and gives us only two

If we know anything truthful about Diana, it was her love of children. I bet she would have had dozens if she could.

Yes that's right, musings and suggestions about the BABY. Not about the 80-year-old grown adult man/woman that will maybe exist in the future. That's for a different thread altogether in another part of the board. What you're discussing is the future of the British monarchy, and I think there's a thread already for that.

Eh, I don't know. She loved children, for sure, but that doesn't translate into wanting a dozen of them. Plus, she had a lot of difficulties with being pregnant- exhaustion and nausea during and then depression after.

We'll see. I can see them only having two, but maybe they'll surprise us.

What is anyone's thought about the venue for the baptism? Do you think it will be other than Buckingham Palace? My thought is BP, but then I thought they could surprise us -- is there a chapel at KP? HM is usually at Balmoral during the likely time of baptism; could Crathie Kirk be a possibility?

I think the baptism will be a traditional one. In the Music Room of Buckingham Palace.

I would be surprised if the baptism isn't in the music room at Buckingham Palace.

Doesn't have to be a chapel. Charles, Anne, Andrew and William were baptised in the The Music Room at Buckingham Palace. Henry was baptised at St George's Chapel at Windsor, Eugenie was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Beatrice was christened at Chapel Royal at SJP. Viscount Severn and Lady Louise waere christened at Windsor in a private chapel, Savannah Phillips christening took place at Holy Cross Church in Avening, Gloucestershire, near Gatcombe Park.

Only 4 members of the current RF have been baptised in the Music Room, everyone else has been christened or baptised elsewhere.

The reason I think it will be the Music Room at BP is because this child will be a future monarch. I noticed both Charles and William were baptized there. Of course anywhere it possible. We'll see when the time comes.

Doesn't the Archbishop of Canterbury use water from the River Jordan for royal baptisms too? Seems I've read that somewhere.

FORMER royal correspondent Jennie Bond has admitted Kate and William could have a challenge ahead of them, as the world feverishly awaits the birth of the royal baby in June:
Jennie Bond: Kate and Wills will be great parents but they should prepare for baby mania | Royal | News | Daily Express

I think the article meant to say in July.
