The only recent royal baby whose gender was revealed before birth was Infanta Sofía of Spain, IIRC.

Perhaps when Kate's vomiting has been talked over for another month, people will move on to something else.

In the meantime, I'll probably continue reading the forums that I have bookmarked.
Of course we discuss Kate's pregnancy in a thread entitled 'the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant'. If you don't want to read about it, don't click on any of the threads about the future Cambridge baby. If it's being discussed in threads on other topics on this site, it should be reported to the moderators as off-topic.

yes it was! Letizia decided to announce she was having a second girl to stop all the fuss about it. I wonder if Kate would do the same, I'd like her to reveal the gender of her baby and I think there is a chance of her doing this because of all the fuss about it.

And I read tweets from Niraj Tanna@IkonPictures that indicated she was expecting a baby before the official announcement, and I also think some info about the baby's gender will escape as well

Some tweets I found:

Niraj Tanna@IkonPictures
7 months from now...
Niraj Tanna@IkonPictures
Interesting 12 week scan rule. #justsaying #interesting
Niraj Tanna@IkonPictures
Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Told you… my info is always spot on!!!

'the fuss' in Letizia's case was based on Spain still preferring a boy to a girl and if Sofia jr. had been a boy, there had been pressure to change the constitution in Leonor's favour.

Kate is not in a similar situation, the discussion about the gender is just the overwhelming interest but not like in Spain with constitutional consequences.

The tweets I found are very recent, if you have a twitter account just check it. Some people say that Middletons told him, but I don't think it's true although he has some good connections, or maybe he saw her leaving doctors office in London.

Until such times as legislation is introduced in each of the Commonwealth realms ending male primogeniture with regards to the succession, the gender of Kate's baby does have constitutional consequences. Each of the realms have indicated that they will introduce such legislation, but it's not yet a done deal.

If the articles are truth, that the Middleton only found out the weekends she came down with HG. I don't see how they would tell a friend/source before close family members

Here are some of his tweets from last year, click on the link to see what he is responding too.

Niraj Tanna
‏@IkonPictures
@Bloom_Kerr Apparently there is a three month rule on speculating about pregnancy's.


Niraj Tanna
‏@IkonPictures
Congratulations if it is true. This source has never been wrong.

Big chance that they hadn't intented Anyone to know until the 12-week-mark.

I agree. Look how long they were engaged before William and Kate's family, other than her father, knew they were engaged. Wouldn't be surprised if it were true that the only reason the Middleton's knew Kate was pregnant is because she got so sick. This is an intensely private couple who keep things from their family. Though I think if they were a "normal" couple, their family probably would have known about the engagement and pregnancy sooner than they did.

I have another option (just as the other poster did) which is to respectfully ask posters here to stick to the more positive aspects of the pregnancy, and to keep discussion of tabloid-like stories to a minimum.

There is also the option of putting people on ignore if they decide they can't help but play the role of a tabloid newspaper here.

It's not black and white. I don't have to "go" anywhere else. Reporting on an aspect of the pregnancy one or two times doesn't bother me, but I don't see any reason to turn these otherwise informative forums into an extension of the paparazzi problem.

Still learning what sort of things are appropriate to discuss here. The "love it or leave it" attitude is expressed by one or two members of all internet forums that I've been on, but this forum is a cut above many other forums in terms of intelligent, non-sensationalized discussion.

I've seen this question asked (somewhere) on the forum, but I didn't see the answer.

Is there any estimate on when the British parliament will pass the new bill on gender equality (I know it's retroactive, so that's cool), or any estimate about how long it will take to get through all the other nations?

What happens if it simply doesn't get approved by the other nations?

Is there a thread with more history of letters patent and how they used to work? Queen Elizabeth can't simply issue letters patent and have parliament ratify them, right?
