The fact that the son is actually typed unlike the time of birth, makes me think they did know.
or they had two notes prepared one for a boy and one for a girl as it was always going to be on or the other but the time could have been any!

Or they had two copies, one with boy and one girl, on standby.

Yes, and if she'd had a daughter, all of those who picked "girl" would be saying the same thing you are right now. You had a 50/50 chance at being correct. You didn't know with 100% certainty what the gender of the child was, you guessed, just like everyone else did.

I am glad that it is a boy. As gorgeous as it would have been to be a girl at least we won't have the issue of whether Diana should or shouldn't have been one of the names etc or the media making out the baby is the new Diana.

Did anyone else notice that 'son' was already typed, unlike the time of birth which was handwritten in?

Maybe you have to be more active, didn't William have problems as he was not logging enough flying hours? Wait and see when Harry has kids, if he has girls, maybe there is something behind the speculation.

Yes. My initial thought was that they already knew it was a boy, however it would be easy to have two copies one with girl and one with boy.

I agree with you, 50/50 probability is nothing. If we had 10 diferent genders, and someone got it right because he "knew" somewhat, then that would be diferent. With just two choices, the "winning bet" is higher and easier.

As someone else pointed out, it's far more likely they had two birth announcements at the ready, one for a boy, the other for a girl, and all that would be required was writing in the time of birth.

A healthy boy - just watched the official 'town crier' make the announcement - I love the medieval pageantry that is mixed with the modern in this announcement.

Charles has also produced a press announcement about being a grand-dad for the first time - don't have a link as heard it on TV - local TV here is just interviewing the town crier (who has just predicted Charles for the name).

The media is saying that it's possible that the royal couple and baby could go home tomorrow.

I'm wondering if William will make an appearance tonight?
