One word comes to mind when thinking of the comments on how George is getting on and that is feisty. Gonna be no flies on that kid.

Maybe I'm a bit off topic because the pregnancy ended... But I have a doubt: was it possible for kate not to know the gender? I mean, even if u don't want that, nowadays you can clearly see it from the scan... especially if it is a boy! You have the evidence! :-D
Many friends of mine told me they knew they were havoing a boy just looking at the scan!

It is possible. I have two friends, one who has already had her child this year, and one who is due early next year who don't know and don't want to know. The one who has already had her baby was convinced she was having a girl and even bought some pink things - her reasoning was that she felt different to how she was with her first, which was a boy. She had a second boy. Neither actually looked at their scans - simple really - the doctor had the scan but they didn't.

It also happens, that the child is always pressing their legs together in the very "deciding moments" of the scan.... so even if you WANT to know, you sometimes cannot find it out - except you are doing a test (i.e. amniotic fluid test).

I don't expect an announcement until the Queen is back in London.

Great story - and lovely art. Note however, that she donated it for the nursery, but there's no word that 's how it is being used. I think it would be great in a kitchen or office as well. Maybe, someday we will see it hung somewhere.

The painting is lovely, I deplore the attitude of the press continuing to emphasise that this girl has Down's Syndrome though.
Just to clarify, nobody has paid anything for this painting? It was a gift given freely which William and Catherine have accepted?

The article says that the £2,000 pound cost is an estimate value by the artist (I would assume based on work she's previously sold), but she's donating the painting to the Cambridges.

Its usually the case that when a gift is sent to the royals, they're catalogued and a general note of thanks is sent to the donor. We never know just how the gift is used as a rule.

In this case, a letter was sent in advanced asking if they would like one of the paintings and a letter was sent back accepting the gift with pleasure so I do imagine that Will and Kate will be using it and most likely in a the nursery. Perhaps at KP?

I also thought they stressed the fact that this artist had Down's Syndrome too much. Although its an inspiring article that teaches that those that do have Down's can and do become remarkable people, I like how she herself expressed it. "I'm not a person with Down's Syndrome that is an artist, I'm an artist who has Down's Syndrome".

All in all, a very touching human interest story and I do like her art. A bit out of my price range but I like it!

But just think how the gift has resulted in so much publicity for her work, much more than the cost of the painting would involve.
I'm not saying that was the reason for the gift, just that the artist is unlikely to lose out by giving it.

Two articles, one in DailyFail, it'll be forgotten tomorrow.

There are two attitudes that are held by a lot of members of our society when it comes to people with special needs; they're incapable, and ought to be pitted, and put away, or, they're superhuman. I'm a big advocate for putting the person before the exceptionality (or forgoing the exceptionality altogether, unless there's an accommodation issue), because in reality, it shouldn't make a difference. I know it does, because this article certainly didn't let ANYONE forget that this talented woman has this exceptionality. I'm glad that the Cambridges received her work in a form of a gift for little George. Hopefully, it'll help him be as aware, and accepting as his parents are.
