Prince Charles has spoken out about becoming a grandfather,and has said he "thrilled" Kate is pregnant and "its a very nice thought about becoming a grandfather at my old age" Not that he's very old he's the same age as my mum!!!

OK, that's it for me. A simple question turns into a one-woman tyrade.

I was speculating that she might be expecting twins because I thought I read somewhere before the wedding that twins run in her family. There was an article last week that discussed the problems that would arise if she was carrying twins and had to have a c-section. Who would make the decision on which one would be the future ruler? Lots of pressure.

She looks lovely. I'm so glad that she's well enough to leave the hospital. They both look so happy.

What tirade? Did I miss it?

I'm glad she's headed home. With the dehydration in hand, and some nausea meds, hopefully she'll be able to avoid further hospitalization during her pregnancy.

She'll be more protected at KP. Wonder how those radio people would like to be harrassed when they are hospitalized.
It trivialized her hospital admission.
It trivialized hospitals.

Because a photo is taken in a very short time and I am sure we didn't see all the photos taken. And, as you can see in the video provided by Poolbabe, he did put her arm around her while walking down the stairs.

You ask the question which is unnecessary and you know it stirs the posters and then you act all surprised it did. It wouldn't be the first time.

What tyrade? EIIR answered your question, in two sentences. Since when a simple two sentences answer is a tyrade? Really?

The decision is pretty easy. Which ever baby is in front comes out first even in a C section.....although it will be fodder for conspiracy theorists if a boy comes out before a girl.

As a nurse, 5:30 am gets busy. We are passing meds, emptying catheter bags, doing IV totals, taking vital signs, preparing report for the next shift, charting, repositioning patients, washing up any patients who need to be washed up and tying up any loose ends and ensuring everything is ready for the staff coming on duty. If someone called at 5:30am near the end of my 12h shift, I would not be quick to catch on that it was a prank. I would try to be as polite as possible, probably tell them something along the lines of what the nurse said - "an uneventful night" - and get back to doing my damn job which should not include screening calls because, quite frankly, I am there to nurse a patient back to health and have a ton of other things more important to deal with than take a phone call in the middle of doing rounds.

If you sign a release saying X can be told how you're doing and someone calls saying they're X, I'm not going to argue too much (because I'm damed if I do, and I'm damned if I don't). I'm basically going to tell them how the day/night went and if they had visitors or if you slept, not much more. If people are so concerned about their information, don't sign a release, give your family a direct phone number and tell them to call you or designate someone to field calls and don't call the unit!
Thanks for this dose of reality. I think especially if the queen had already called the ward previously for updates and was on the release list we need to think about how we would have responded. "Pardon me ma'am, you say you are the queen but you need to prove it to me." We will never know these details with certainty. I am sure the hospital may be adding a code word (or some other additional procedure) for the release of info to approved family and friends.

He didn't speak very clearly, so it could be he simply slurred but I understood him to have said that "his daughter" is feeling better, not "daughter-in-law", which would be very nice!

If I were to describe how the Queen would phone the hospital, it would be that the phone rings... operator picks it up and hears "This is Christopher Geidt (her private secretary) at Buckingham Palace and The Queen would like to inquire into the health of her granddaughter in-law, The Duchess of Cambridge." He would remain on the line until the person the Queen wishes to speaks to is available and then he would announce to the Queen the call is ready.

I would imagine too that HM could easily call William and/or Kate on their cellphones and bypass the hospital switchboard entirely.
