Thanks for this additional bit of information. That is indeed a bewildering approach. This way of teaching excludes them from the wider deaf community and I am not so sure of their success in the hearing community. For the children I sincerely hope this approach works but I am afraid it will fail some of them.

I assume Pippa was approached because it is relatively close to where she grew up.

This original approach was exactly the type of schooling my niece attended in Trenton New Jersey. She starter there at age 4. Later in life she was taught signing {we all attended quite a few classes} but by that time her mastery of oral speech was very good. We were told that when done the other-way-around, speech will never be understood by others quite as well. She now, of course, does both, plus all three of her daughters were born without hearing as she married a lad from same school. I was amazed when I attended a Christmas concert and they not only sang but they could carry a tune fairly well. Absolutely brilliant school.

My bet is also on a boy
Godparents: William would be a nice choice, having the future King as godfather. But I think it will be other relatives and friends.

Do you think Philippa's brother James might be a godfather?

Pippa was photographed arriving to the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London on Tuesday with her husband James and leaving after an hour later

Taking pap pictures of someone visiting a hospital/clinic is absolutely disgusting. The person that took the pictures, the people who decided to publish, and anyone who clicks should all be ashamed of themselves.

You're right it's my opinion, and it's likely the the opinion of most editors and most press ethic boards. But you're free to take pride in anything you post, that pride of choice should keep you from feeling offended.

Pippa is a writer and has discussed her pregnancy in her writings. She and her husband were on a public street. So while it isn’t really all that newsworthy, it is not exactly intruding on privacy the way photos taken on private property would be.
I think all those photos in Italy were much worse than the photo on the public street visiting the hospital.

Very much disagree.

Even Catherine who isn’t a private citizen like Pippa was shown more respect. When Catherine went to Lindo Wing with the George pregnancy, the paps took the photos but they didn’t sell them because they said it would of been crossing a line. Paps who are generally scumbags, even knew it was a matter of human decency.

Everybody, even famous people, should feel free and safe seeking medical treatment, without having to worry about being harassed by paps as they seek it. And then having the pictures published that then will create public speculation and prying into their medical affairs.

Should we have seen pictures of Zara entering and leaving the hospital when her doctors confirmed her miscarriage? Surely you believe so since she had publicly announced her pregnancy and she would have been entering and leaving via a public street.

Remember what happened to poor Cynthia Nixon in 2008? They papped her going into a NYC hospital, and then the press started running stories that she was getting a boob job. She was forced to come forward and deny and disclose her real medical issue -"I was at St Luke's Roosevelt Hospital for my three-monthly checkup. I was in the Oncology department. I guess they (the press) think that means plastic surgery.” She had publicly announced her breast cancer from 2006, so I guess that means she was fair game to that disgusting intrusion.

So no it isn’t harmless, and there’s a reason most editors wouldn’t publish. At the very best it was in poor taste, at the very worst it’s ethically bankrupt. I believe the latter.

They were probably taking baby care, Lamaze, classes. When she is in labor I imagine they have already come up with a way for a car to drop her off as they did Kate.

It's not like she was in labor or in medical emergency and they were taking compromising photos of her. Feeling safe seeking treatment

She was there what an hour? Likely a tour, or late birthing class, scan.
