Jeez, I can't believe I have to say it but here goes.

Apparently Kate and/or William asked for Carole's assistance in Wales.

As a mother and new grandmother, who is free (i.e. based on wealth and time) she was able to provide them with some assistance (i.e. maybe going grocery shopping since they hadn't been there for some time, cleaning the said house because it might have been empty for some time, being the backup so Kate could sleep while William was at work, etc.). She did what she had to do assist them and than left the family to their own devices. What is so God Awful about that?

And it goes without saying that of course there are new mothers whose own mother's aren't around (because of death, illness, distance, work or just not having a good relationship with their daughters) and the new mothers have to make a go of it alone. But there are other mother's who have the ability to assist their children and their new grandchildren and are able to stay with the said family members. Should they not assist them because other mother's can't?

Needless to say, each situation is different and everyone makes the best with what they have. And the end of the day, that's all you can do.

Actually they're expected after midnight, not neccesarily expected to be released directly after midnight. They're missing a massive audience if they release them at 00:01.

Here is the MIRROR version: Prince George birth: William and Kate send thank you notes to every well-wisher who wrote to them - Mirror Online

OK - so we all know they had help and that the gesture is not full of meaning, EXCEPT to the people who get the cards and treasure them.

In any case - lovely manners! And good PR.

There a Telegraph story speculating that William and Kate want 2 more kids because if they saved the top 3 layers of their wedding cake. However, if you look at the photo of the cake. The top layer is the smallest one and does not appear big enough to feed all the people that would be invited to George's christening.

Pretty much anything you receive from a Royal family member isn't written by them but by their lady-in-waiting or private secretary. It will also often state at the bottom, "Sarah Sienesi , Lady-in-Waiting to HRH The Countess of Wessex", or whomever it is from. It is still something valuable though and treasure, as you said.

I would think that William and Kate would have signed the thank you letters to the PMs and Govt Generals for official gifts from a country for George. Of course it was typed by someone else. I am sure the people who got letters from Miguel or Rebecca will treasure them.

Is this thread closed and we're all now posting on the current events thread ( or the pics thread for new pics of George)? I'm confused where to put things.

If its just about the pix of george released to date (the 2 by MM) then use that thread.

Anything about George, his birth etc is on here. At some stage - dont know when - it will merge into probably another thread.

I dont understand it either - not really. But what I have said is what I am working on

I asked the Mods - a couple of weeks after the birth. They said this will go on until some logical break (I am paraphrasing) like Christening or some other official event (multi generational portrait?) and then we will move into a W and C and Family thread. I'm assuming the EVENT will have its own thread as well.

There is no rush - apparently.

Have you ever read the books of David Eddings (the Belgariad and the Mellorian). He writes about THE EVENT - its various things but linked to the coming of the One God. obviously not in this instance
