Mette-Marit was asked about that when they announced that it had been moved from Early december to late November, and said that the exact due date was something they wanted to keep private.

Ok then, I can understand that. Especially with all the publicity surrounding them.

Somehow it surprises me that they will keep the date private.No one of other royal families ever said an exact date.But with IA they said January 22th and she was born 21st. Perhaps there are so´me comlications which I don´t hope so they think it could be a caesarian section

I think they may have learnt their lesson with IA because of the publicity and have decided to keep this birth date private, or maybe it has to be with IA being the heir and that there was more interest in her expected birth date and it had to be more well known? Or maybe they just didn't want there to be some kind of public 'count down' to the birth.

And, Mette-Marit had blood pressure issues, I think and that shouldn't complicate a normal labour too much, as long as it's monitored. But, then my mother had high blood pressure and they wanted to do a C-section, but ended up not doing one, so you never know unless you're the mum or the doctors, and even then you just have to take it as it comes during the labour.

Other royal courts don't actually ever specify the date, they give a rough time estimate. In Spain, the royal court said that Cristina's due date was sometime in early summer (with Irene) and that Letizia's due date was sometime in early November. In Denmark, the Danish royal court said Mary was due sometime in mid-October. In the Netherlands the royal court tends to add a few weeks so that the babies are seemingly born early but are probably not. The Dutch royal court likely does this so that there is less media camping out at hospitals or following the princess around.

Perhaps that is what the Norwegian court is doing too, so that Haakon and Mette-Marit are under less media attention when the big moment comes.

I don't think it means that there is potential complications, just a desire for privacy for the parents to be.

One can hope... Timewise it would be right in connection with the moving of the due date.

I hope so. I'm going on a cruise at the end of next week, and I don't want to miss the birth.

I feel your pain. you can find some of the news coverage online again but not all and there's nothing like watching it live on tv.

i know this is a really long shot.. but i'm really hoping the crown princess will give birth this week, so if if if she's already recover, she can leave her new baby for short time and dazzle us with her gala appearances...
it will be a great dissapointment to miss her on 3 important centenial celebrations on 25th-27th :o :o :)

this is posted by larzen:
25.11
17.00 The goverment gives a concert and buffet at Akershus Palace to mark that there is 100 years since the Royal family arrived in Oslo, The King and Queen, The Crown Prince, Princesess Ragnhild, Astrid and Märtha Louise with husbands
26.11
The King and Queen and the Crown Prince, Princesses Ragnhild, Astrid and Märtha Louise with husbands attend a varietee show, Oslo Spektrum to mark the end of the centennial celebrations
27.11
Ball at the palace to mark the end of the centennial celebrations

but really, if her due date is near, then it could be sometime during the centenial weekend...

I think that until the baby's birth she will be absent from official occassions, and after she would want (and need) to take it easy!:)
