I'm hoping the baby comes on the weekend so I can do baby watch and not have to worry about having to get up and go to work the next morning.

I know Charles has always wanted a little girl, which I find adorable-he did not get his daughter so a granddaughter would be extra special.

Duchess of Cornwall has given the strongest hint yet that a new royal baby is imminent, telling well-wishers to expect a bundle of joy by the end of the week | Mail Online

I see people's are getting all wild up over the fact that Camilla referred to the fact that she referred to the baby as 'their' grandchild.

she will no doubt adore this child almost as if it was her own by blood. half the children in world should be as lucky to have the loving grandparents and greats this one will have.

With the abdication and inauguration in Belgium, it seems like it will be rather eventful weekend.

I do not see any reference by Camilla to a grandchild. Once again people are confusing journalistic paraphrasing with direct quotes. As far as I can see, this is the only direct quote:

‘We are all just waiting by the telephone. We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here.’

That's so silly. I really don't understand why people are upset. She will be that child's grandmother.

Here's video of Camilla saying that she thinks the baby will here by the end of the week.

I agree! She will still be a grandmother to the child weather people's like it or not. Camilla will make a Good Grandma!

I think Diana would want Camilla to love the child and be a Great & caring Grandmother and do all the Grandmotherly things with Grandchild she will never Meet. The baby will most likely be Catherine mom more then Camilla.

See! That's all she said. The words "eagerly awaiting the birth of her grandchild" were spoken by a TV reporter in the voiceover.

Sometimes I think the media likes to toss in little comments that imply Camilla is taking Diana's space just so that people will misunderstand and think that Camilla (or another royal) made such a comment and the Internet explodes.

Basically they're giant trolls.

Yep. Unfortunately some are still stuck in the past and want to punish Camilla for things that transpired years ago. Camilla is now part of the family and will be in that child's life. Those folks will just have to learn to accept it.

Thank you, you've summed up my feeling on the subject exactly.

This is just my opinion, but when you label other people's behavior, it stimulates anger and defensiveness rather than real discussion. True discussion validates what other people say and feel, while sharing your own opinion and reasons for your opinion. It that way, we often find things we agree on and things upon which we respectfully disagree.
I understand that it feels good to vent, but if you vent on the issue rather than at the person posting it's much more like a forum of diverse opinions; it is more inclusive.
People won't move off of their love for Diana until they want to. Labeling people "manic" who adore her won't change their mind - it will just make them angry.
Plus, and again it is my opinion, but "manic" does not necessarily apply to hero worship. A little hero worship is good for the soul and keeps dreams alive.
Live the dream Diana lovers!
And I am off topic, again!

And Im off topic too, but although manic may not be a suitable adjective, the vitriol generated by some "hero worshippers" against Charles and Camilla is not healthy either. And I think blind "hero worship" can be dangerous and lead to cultism.

Back on topic - I'm going to Brussels this weekend and was v excited when I discovered about the abdication and inauguration, but it now looks like I might miss the birth. Mind you, that's nothing compared to how my other half looked when he realised he's missing most of the 2nd test and The Open!
