Have you seen Rachel Tucker as Elphaba? I will regret for the rest of my life not having seen her in Wicked (living in Denmark absolutely sucks) because she has some of the best vocals I've ever heard.
I love the possibility of her tricking the press, because as you, in her position, I'd do the same exact thing. And no, I didn't get to see Rachel Tucker as Elphaba. I keep hoping that she'll come and do a run in NYC, but so far, we've been getting everyone else, but her (though current NYC Elphaba is pretty darn awesome).

That's too bad, I hope for you that she'll come to Broadway once. I've only heard good things about Willemijn Verkaik, so I don't doubt she's amazing. I hope you have a great time!

Of course it isn't because they move to their permanent home 3 months later!

No you don't need to do that. I've given my view - that's what happens in the forums. You don't have to agree with me. If everyone removed a post that someone else didn't agree with, these forums would be empty.

What the quote I used highlights is that the "source" isn't that good.

Strange, but interesting, article. Thanks for drawing it to our attention, Lady Erton.

I must confess I am confused. When is their own home going to be ready to move into? If Kate & William will spending the first six weeks with the baby in the $7million Georgian mansion, just how long will the child be in the "humble" nursery in their cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace before they move into their permanent digs?

I loved the bit at the end: "and surely it is no bad thing this little prince or princess is given a taste of life outside of the Royal Family?" I'm sure the child will have fond memories of its few few months as a newborn.

I think the info about staying 6 weeks with the Middletons has no firm evidence behind it. And the bit I picked up about a "humble" nursery just reemphasises that these "sources" know about the same as us because they are confused as well :)

Thank you! I saw her in February, and loved her portrayal, so I'm excited to see her again.

As to the 'modest nursery', I think it's just speculation. We're never going to get the real details about what type of nursery they'll have, and we'll be counting ourselves VERY lucky if we every get any sort of pictures of the baby in the said nursery. However, judging by Catherine's tastes, it's very possible that the baby's room will indeed not be too ostentatious.

Kate Middleton, Prince William Prepare Modest Baby Nursery

They make it sound as though they have recruited a surrogate mother.

Lots of people are making it sound like that - there's a circle speculating that the bump is fake and that Catherine isn't really pregnant.

Of course they just make it up. News about the royals' personal lives sells papers and since there isn't much, they just make it up. That's pretty much how tabloids operate much of the time anyway - it's creative writing, not actual reporting.

Somehow I can't see William and Kate going in for a $21,000 carriage-shaped crib. The Royal Family has never been much for conspicuous consumption. That looks more like something a footballer's wife would go for, or a reality tv star.

The Cambridge baby won't need fake princess stuff :)

Good grief! People that would shell out that kind of money for those kind of items, to me, have more money than brains.

I can see both William and Kate looking at the things in the article and going "You've GOT to be kidding me!" I can see both of them being quite conservative in what they buy for infants even though it will possibly be used again for a second child. We know Kate likes to recycle.

It would certainly be a waste of money to send any of that stuff to Baby Cambridge as gifts because Catherine & William will just turn it around and donate it to a charity and you wont even get the tax credit.
I do agree that people who buy most of that stuff would have more money than brains.

To say that the tabloids are making this stuff up is possibly true but there are 100s of people who work in royal households and some of them do sell their information to the tabloids to supplement their pay. So long as it isn't too serious the royals tend to turn a blind eye. There are also the staff employed by their friends and the friends of all this staff who can and do sell information.

There would be literally 100s if not 1000s of people who have a snippet of information and if you buy enough snippets you get some idea of what things are like.

I personally think it a total waste of money to send anything to the royals as they are way richer than I am and can afford everything they want for themselves that they want.

I think that this would be a valid point 30 years ago. But Catherine and William don't have 100's of staff, not do they live in any royal household. I think that William in particular has a really firm grip on information regarding his friends. Their life style has really shut down available sources of information.

This tight approach to info is what drives the press wild - so I think they are having yet another punt at making it up, to see if there is any type of response.

TBH, I think that would be the gift that would please Will and Kate the most. We have to remember that they also asked for donations to selected charities when they married. This is the kind of people William, Kate and Harry are and from the looks of things, even Baby Cambridge is getting into charity work and its not even born yet.

Personally, I think the Baby Cambridge Fundraiser is the greatest thing since sliced bread. There is such a flurry of attention given to this impending birth and what better way to put that attention to a good advantage than have folks make a donation for children that really need it.

Exactly! Plus I think it's a really nice way for those of us who enjoy royal watching and appreciate the bloggers who work really hard to bring us the information we like talking about to come together as a community.

It was a genius idea and a great way to celebrate the baby.
