Regarding the nursery and hiring a decorator, and getting things in for the baby, this is why I firmly believe that Will and Kate DON'T KNOW and WON'T BE FINDING OUT; it would make it impossible to keep it under wraps if you hire a decorator - and once you know I think it's almost impossible to make the theme and the purchases gender neutral - you will naturally gravitate toward more masculine or feminine selections.

If the decorator knows - how does she place these orders without people suddenly discovering, esp. if the decorator's name is made known. If the decorator suddenly orders tons of blue puppies or pink and purple ballet dancers, that's a big tip off. Ordering both to confuse the public is a waste of money.

Yes. I was just about to say that. It is Jewish custom to not prepare before the baby arrives. My sister-in-law wouldn't decorate the nursery or buy things. I eschewed that... Not all Jews have that superstition, but many do.

For that matter even Hindus do not buy anything for the baby until after the birth! No nurseries or clothes, nothing at all.

Names are so so important. Its not a sound, its an identity.
At least the last name of poor May was not Day....

I don't think so. In my opinion, we'll not see another Cambridge baby until early 2016.

I bet Baby Number 1 is a girl, and Baby Number 2 will be a boy. I hope the new succession rules will have been passed before the Duchess has another baby, in order to avoid a situation that happened in Sweden, with Prince Carl Philip losing his place in the line of succession.

I agree with you 100 per cent

But I don't think it's good to get pregnant and have another baby while the first one is still very young.

And she can take the time between the two birth to settle as full-time working Royal.

I just think she looks so much happier pregnant and really wants children.

Maybe we should let them decide when and if to have a second child.

Both William and Kate have a sibling close to them in age they are close to. Possibly they will want the same for their own kids

Well, she'll have the first baby in July. If she has a second baby between January and March 2016, the two babies will not be too distant in age.

I think this is the most compelling reason why I do think their next child will be very close in age, god willing. Like William, this child will be raised to be Monarch and will need a strong confidante and circle of trust.

We'd then have a gigantic baby boom between Cambridge children.

Good grief, lets not start on Baby Cambridge II. If you are wondering what you'll be doing, they is the debate on the actual gender of BCI, star sign, all about the birth, first photos, proud grandparents. Then there is the names and the godparents, first formal pictures, Catherine and Williams future, moving house, more pictures, engagements etc. then there are clothes, his, hers and the child's .

Then you can worry about BCII.
