Interesting, but that's not the case where I work. We must have the cheap package.

So the Duchess has an official engagement tomorrow with the Duke but from what I've heard no official decision has been made and it's basically going to end up being a last minute decision depending on how Catherine is feeling tonight.

Until then I am off to bed

Who cares if Kate used to smoke; who cares if she still does or did before she found out she was pregnant. God I hate this new idea that smoking is the greatest sin known to man.
This story about the nanny is going to cause people in a few months to quote it like its the truth and Kate and William actually said it themselves.

Who in either William or Kate's family could be a nanny to their child? Both their siblings have lives of their own to lead and families of their own to start. William had nannies so I'm sure he appreciates them more than people who have never had experience with them.

Why wouldn't William and Catherine trust their child to a nanny that isn't a family member? William had several nannies himself, I'm sure this baby will have at least one nanny too in his/her lifetime.

We must remember that so much of what is reported is tabloid spin/innuendo

So then don't read them, simple as that. If they're causing you so much distress, don't click on any articles about it or switch the TV channel if they mention it. Nobody's forcing you to read about this story. There are untold numbers of articles about the Kardashians, for example, but as I have zero interest in them I don't read them.

There is so much coverage of William and Kate because the demand for that coverage is substantial. If people weren't interested, the stories wouldn't attract hits, sell newspapers or attract viewers and the amount of coverage would dwindle. The media are responding to what their customers demand.

One thing I am not impressed by are the rumours that they wont attend Christmas. If that is true, if I were Sophie, Camilla and the other wives as they aren't allowed to spend Christmas with their family.

Who says they aren't allowed? Does Camilla not leave Sandringham after Christmas lunch to spend time with her children and grandchildren?

If Kate is feeling deeply unwell (which, as many of the truly harrowing stories of HG sufferers on this forum suggest she probably is), it would be entirely understandable for Kate to stay with her family resting. The RF don't 'rest' at Christmas, it's a major Downton Abbey-style undertaking by all those attending, including at least 3 or 4 outfit changes per day. That alone must be very stressful for female members of the family.

I totally agree. Spending Christmas with the Middletons rather than at Sandringham would seem more logical for someone not feeling 100% up to par. If she wanted to, at her parent's home, she could sit back in sweats and pink fuzzy slippers all day easier at Sandringham where there's a strict itinerary and dress codes. It wouldn't surprise me though if they did head to Sandringham after the feasting is done to spend time with Will's family though.

Right now, Kate really has to do what is best for Kate.

It is known that when you marry into the family, Christmas lunch is spent with the Queen. The wives families are allowed to stay on the estate, but they attend Church and have lunch with the Queen. Autumn attends every year, even though her family live in Canada. If Catherine is allowed to spend the day with her family this year then it isn't fair on the other wives. Sophie stayed with the Queen over Christmas even though she had just given birth to her son, and she stayed when she had suffered an ectopic pregnancy.

It is just my opinion that if Catherine is allowed to not attend the Church service and spend Christmas with her family then the other wives do not have to go and their husbands and them can spend the day with their families. I have no doubt that when Charles is King, Andrew and Edward's families will likely not attend Sandringham as much though, so I suppose it isn't really a big loss if Catherine doesn't go this year as we will see her every year after that no doubt.

Might not be a good presentation if she is throwing up at lunch and during Church.
By Christmas she might have a few hours of freedom, but she would have to be careful eating the lunch. Maybe not worth the risk?

From what I understand, Camilla attends the church service with the royal family and have Christmas lunch there but then she goes and spend Christmas with her own family at her country house. Last year I remember William & Catherine attended the church service with the royal family and had lunch but then there were pictures released of them at the Middleton's.

I'm guessing it's okay with The Queen for some members of her family to split their time with the families for Christmas. The Wessex's usually stay at Sandringham for awhile. Charles & Camilla usually go back to Birkhall.

I just hope Catherine will be well enough to attend the church service with the family at Sandringham. If not, William & Catherine just may miss this years Christmas celebrations. I'm just hoping everything will be okay by that time.

How odd that you would consider a public day care centre, which look after many children and where staff come and go, safer than having a nanny that you have personally interviewed and reference checked and who will live in your own home looking after only your child. Given that royals both work and live in the same place, and that their public engagements can happen at any time of the day or night a nanny seems the most practical solution. The parents also get to see the nannies interaction with their children at different times during the day and night. A public day care centre could also present rather unique security issues and exposure to the paps.

Exactly, especially as any royal nanny will probably already have history with either the Royal Family or their close friends and will come with impeccable references. It wouldn't be surprising if they choose someone they already know.

Also- their security team will thoroughly vet this person. All in all, a nanny with the references, experience, and security clearance that a a royal nanny will require will probably be the safest hands anyone could leave a child in.
