Sure, she can. When and how to get the baby out is often a blend of mother's and doctor's views, and - when the patient is less famous - the doctor's schedule. It happens all the time. Some patients/doctors don't believe induction unless there's something starting to go wrong.

For all we know, she could be heading out in search of her toes. She hasn't seen them in a *very* long time.

If she left Kensington Palace at 9.30 this morning I'm sure we would have been told by now that she was in labour! Probably nipping out to swim again or to visit a friend.

Shopping, swimming, visiting, she's very active.
Is there any chance of Kate being admitted to the hospital without anyone noticing?

I was thinking of that, how does she get away without getting her picture taken when she goes for her scans and I am sure she goes weekly since she has reached the very end of her pregnancy.

Frankly I hope that is exactly how it happens. The DoC is quietly admitted, gives birth and then goes home to recuperate without anyone being the wiser.

The couple then authorizes St. James Palace to make the announcement, releases a set of photos and thanks everyone for their good wishes and support.

I am sorry but I find it borderline cruel to subject a pregnant woman-even a Royal one-to this. Running the gamut of press and curiosity seekers/well-wishers, undergoing the ordeal of labor and childbirth, then being expected to appear agreeable and rested before the eyes of the world as you exit the hospital 24-48 hours later with the infant in your arms ??

Perhaps the date was sometime in May all along? This hullaballoo is just to throw off everyone, so there is "ho-hum" level of interest once the baby is born.


Just a thought :)

Agreed.

There is something to be said for the old days when royal women gave birth in privacy behind palace walls and simply announced the birth afterwards!

I know what you mean, but then we wouldn't have all the anticipation of this sweet arrival. Even though it's hard to wait it's fun for us to talk about this event and share in the excitement on the board.

The pregnancy was announced 8 months ago, so I doubt that :-)

If there's any chance of her giving birth "in private" and then let us know, if that's what they want , that's fine for me . I just hope the baby is healthy and we can see a picture of him / her eventually.
