They love to create drama where none exists. It's their way of keeping the 'soap opera' going.

Very fortunate to have a mum like that; I loved my mum but no way would she have been able to offer any assistance.

Now there are three people in Kate and William's marriage including Carole Middleton | Daily Mail Online

Don't know if any of that is true but if Kate was super exhausted why did she do 4 days of engagements plus 2 more days next week. She could have just did the 2 church services.

The right now it seems that they are still based at KP with Kate being spotted in London while Wills was in China and all of the engagements this week. So maybe her parents are overseeing the new baby's room decorating in Norfolk while the Cambridges are in London.

While KP is a palace, I don't think the private apartment side are treated like museums but family homes.

There are a couple of occasions recently where she has looked tired but she supposedly said the other day that she does forget she is pregnant at times, which to me means that she is finding the pregnancy easy

What always sounds the alarm for me is the level of detail in such stories. Catherine Ostler (former editor of Tatler btw) claims to know things in this article that are virtually impossible to know.

Unless the Mail Online has a microphone and camera installed in Anmer Hall, I think I'll give this one a pass

This makes sense to me. The last trimester although one becomes ungainly with the added weight and tends to do the "mama waddle", it is feeling normal with no sickness for the most part. One does tend to feel tired though as the wee hours of the night is when the future Olympian tends to work out in the jungle gym a lot and its hard to sleep.

Kate seems to carry herself with grace and looks so extremely happy but the tiredness look tells me the baby is healthy and perhaps sometimes too active.

I was ever-so-grateful that my mum helped me out in the last few weeks of my 2nd pregnancy. I love my mum-in-law, but my mum knows me best. Kate has full trust in her mum, and why wouldn't she want her around?

I love how the media thinks William is easily manipulated - he's far from it!

You brought up a very good point Osipi because I do believe many people do not realize that developing babies are active when their mothers are resting and quiet when they're moving. There is a reason why newborns are comforted by being rocked or jiggled when their fussy. They can be at their most active at around 2am when mother is trying to get a few hours of sleep.

Several sources on Twitter are saying William, Catherine and Prince George were seen at a play-centre today building sandcastles to celebrate Mother's Day.

Saw that as well. Sounds like a great time :)

Does anybody know if the palace is going to release further information about the hospital where Kate will give birth? I was under the impression that on the occasion of George's birth the hospital was known a couple of months before...

I believe they will do so soon, and I think it's going to be St. Mary's Hospital, Lindo Wing once again.

Since no one knows her due date, I think the press will start lining up in front of the Lindo Wing during the first week of April. Just as they did July 2013. Yes, it was a bloody nuisance, but it was all part of the excitement leading up to Prince George's birth.

The lack of interest in this baby isn't a surprise as it is the spare. George is the future King and this child, although it will be much loved within the family, is simply the extra - the spare - and so the interest in much lower from the press and the public. They may not even announce where the baby will be planned to be born. There have been reports of plans in place for a transfer to Cambridge in the case of an emergency and the nearest hospital is in King's Lynn (if she is at Anmer when she goes into labour.)


I doubt that the world's press will line up in front of any hospital. This child is simply the 'spare' and therefore will become less important over time - like Harry is less important to the family now since the birth of George and with this impending birth he becomes even more irrelevant. There wasn't as much interest in Harry's birth as there was in William's because the future King was here so the spare was just that.

Oh, I think the interest will kick in by the first week of April. The media isn't crazy, they know if they want good shots, they must get there early to mark a good spot. Heir or spare, it's going to get nuts all over again.

I also think the media attention will be just the same as it was for when Prince George was born. To be honest, if it is anything like last time, it is probably just as well things are a bit quiet at the moment!

I think international and local networks are in the stages of planning to assigning reporters and royal correspondents to cover the baby's birth. Hotels have to be booked and everything. Trust me, the anticipation is there, even if we don't see it reflecting in the media at this moment. April is right around the corner.

The media world may have to choose between covering the Cambridge birth or Harry - esp as budgets are tight.

Latest reports have Harry in Australia in late April/May for 4 weeks followed by a tour of NZ.

LAte April baby will be a dilemma

I have no doubt the most attention will be on the baby though.
