Not where I live... Seems rather dated to me.

What do you mean? Swedish parents don't try to predict the sex of the baby and don't have any expectations? Even subconsciously?

That's exactly what I said yesterday and was later deleted along with the other "off-topic" posts. Most of the people I know decide how many babies they would like to have prior to getting married with the default now being apparently two. Guys many times say they would like their first born to be a boy, but, after having their two planned children, they don't try a third just because both happen to be girls. It seems to me that a baby's gender is not really a big deal where I come from.

Ofc there are. But gender neutrality is a very big deal in Sweden, and for a brief while wishing for a girl to buy cute dresses is a whole other thing than telling the press/random person that you would prefer one gender over another. WHY does you want that gender, to go to balett, have a calm kid? What is determening that the girl born will be "girly"?

The baby's gender is determined by father's chromosomes anyway. And there is one else who Charles could ask to give him a dranddaughter...

I don't know why Charles wants to have a granddaughter but I suppose(I don't have kids myself) the experience of raising a girl is different from raising a boy. If nothing else, just to have an opportunity to buy pretty dresses and other cute things.

No matter what gender the baby will be, she or he will be surrounded by love from both families. Charles and his late wife, Diana, also wanted a girl after Harry. It would be nice to have a new born princess too.

There's something seriously wrong about these people
Don't they feel the need to take a shower or eat something? Take a nap maybe?

Anyway, I knew this was going to be a May baby and certainly a Taurus! My bet is on a chubby girl!

AFTER Harry? I thought they were not on good terms with each other at that time already...

Yes, something very serious called "Royal Baby Fever"
I don't think they are there all the time for a week, I guess they go home eventually to take a shower or to see if everything is ok but it has to be quick!

We passed the 60th page! Will we reach the 100th before the baby is born?

Sorry if I offended someone but it's really strange to sit near the hospital for days without any real signs. I would get tired after three-four first days...

I don't think so. I hope we don't!

Am I missing something here? I know the pens have been set up but I thought there was some kind of restriction that people were not to gather outside the Lindo wing until it was announced that Kate was in labor.

But obviously some of then still gather. And even get breakfast from the Palace.

It's only for the press pen. The sidewalk have people walking by all the time since it's a normal street so there are some individuals camping out there.

And I take real offense of people saying these people are crazy. What gives you the power to decide that if they think this is fun (and it probably is fun, like a camp with people you get to know and have similar interests) who are you to tell them it's not worthy. One of them is 80, so yes. He probably doesn't have a job. And if they don't have a family, don't you want them to have this company and fun time? And when is it concidered "crazy"? Camping for a movie, concert, convention? Going to a camp where people have one interest? You concentrate on your own life and let them live theirs!

And with this one being late too I have changed my mind and think it will be another boy too

It does really mean nothing. There is no way to know for sure the baby sex other than to have it out of the womb and look between his legs. Even ultrasounds can be wrong.
