You have news at 2 o'clock in the morning? Are people generally awake to listen to that?

When one Googles something about Princess Marie, the immediate message is: Are you sure you don't mean Princess Mary?

It would be nice if they realized that there are TWO princesses, not just one, in Denmark.

I guess it's a common mistake to confuse the two, even in Denmark.

Unless she used artificial means instead of natural means to get pregnant, there is no absolute way to know which day she got pregnant. Also, due dates are different for every woman. Some go 40 weeks, some go 38 and some go 42. It depends on when the last menstrual cycle was, and then it is calculated on the general menstrual cycle being 28 days, while the range is 21 -32 days. So it is in actual fact an estimated due date and not a hard and fast date. She might be just on time. Anything three weeks on either side of the estimated due date is considered full term.

No it's just because we have 24th hour radio very day.
So the time as speaker has to go with something

Ekstra-Bladet has a photo of the journalists waiting around the hospital:

True, and there have also been reports that the date may have been stated incorrectly to throw off the press.

Here is an article that says the press is waiting for Prince Joachim to come down for an announcement:

Yes, there are short news each hour till around 3 or 4 at night (I sometimes stay up and work the night through when I have tight deadlines - like now , and listen to radio the whole night through).

I was on my granpa's house in other city without enternet. Thanks for my friend from GREMB, mobile phone and sms!

BT is reporting that the Mogeltonder, where Joachim and Marie live, is preparing for the new baby in a big way. They expect an increase in tourism, and an increase in royal and famous visitors. They also report that Joachim did indeed drive Marie to the hospital himself.

Prince Felipe drove Letizia as well, if I remember correctly.

It's much more private that way, I think.

The people at Mogeltonder will be very happy to be able to see this royal baby often.

The same was with Haakon and MetteMarit. He drove her but I don't remember with which baby.
Probably it was IngridAlexandra.


The new is (probably) not born yet and we have page number 11 ot this topic

She has only been at the hospital 6 hours, and her water hadn't broken yet when she first arrived.

We probably have a bit longer to wait, especially with a first baby. Imagine how they are in her room ! I trust everything is going smoothly.

Again, I hope the team speaks English or French as well as Danish. This is no time not to understand what people are asking you to do ! Thank goodness Joachim is right there.

There has just been 3 o'clock radio news; they said that lots of reporters were gathering at the university hospital - even at this ungodly hour - eagerly awaiting news. Nothing is expected for the next few hours though.

I am sure that at least one of the team members speaks French and/or English. Marie and Joachim picked their team members (I believe), and it makes sense that they would seek out people they could communicate with.

It's still good for him to be there, just to keep things on even keel.

Yay! I'm so excited! What time is it in Denmark right now? It's only 8:30 p.m. where I live.
