I don't think Victoria and Sofia's due date and announcements could be compared. Large difference in age, first vs second child, risk, etc. Maybe Victoria had reason to be cautious announcing the pregnancy.
As Sofia was announced to give birth in April -and royals always announce due date a bit later than actual- I am expecting this baby any day now.

By just giving a general month, they eliminated the need to give a later date or such. By saying simply April, the baby could be due any where in a 30 day stretch. If the baby had been born on the 2nd like Oscar was in March, or on the 30th, there is no saying the baby was early or late. Any time from April 1 to April 30 the baby is an April baby. The baby being born today is no less an April baby then one born in a week, or no more then if the baby had been born on April fool's.

They tend to announce around the 3 month mark it seems. If Sofia was at 3 months when she announced, the baby would have been conceived in the last week of July (July 30 if she was exactly 3 months when they announced). Based on a July 30 conception, her due date would be around the 21st.

Oscar lines up well for having been born on time. If he was conceived June 10th, Victoria would have hit 3 months around September 2nd, meaning she announced about 2 days past the mark. June 10th conception date puts her on time for a March 2nd birth.

In Holland when there is a pregnancy announced, they usually announce that the child is expected around the beginning of a month or at the end or they mention only the whole month (then you are pretty sure that the due date is around the middle of the month)

The birth of Princess Charlotte of Wales was announced for the month of April which made the excitement start already on the beginning of April and she decided to be born in May

Anyway that is better than announcing something for the summer or in the winter

Katzenburg is dressed pretty casually for a meet & greet at the Royal Palace.

at least he looks like he owns an iron, his khakis are nicely pressed, Sofia's coat looks like it's been wadded up in a ball on her floor

As it seemed to be more like a private meeting, then I'd say Katzenberg in more casual outfit...what's wrong in casual elegance?
I have to say that I do not like Sofia's hair -- lighter hairends make her hair look thinner, fried and dried out. Good and easy-to-style haircut would get rid of damaged hair and make hair-styling more easier. But, hey, new mothers have million other things in their minds than current condition of their hair

To be honest, Sofia's hair looks frizzy and the black and white photo earlier really highlighted that even going so far as to make it look like split ends. The colour photos show a lighter colour on the ends so perhaps she didn't have her hair treated by chemicals while she was pregnant and is growing healthy hair out.

One thing that struck me was their guest looked neat but very casually dressed, Sofia looked slightly more formal except for the rumpled coat and Carl Philip looked like he was on his way to a business meeting. So, colour me confused.

I agree...great color and style...love the retro look. She reminds me of Kate when she wears this style ...and she has the same fortune to bounce back so quickly after her baby was born, like Kate as well.
