What duckies in a row

Honestly it just seems a matter of timing. A mix of the fact today is Anzac day, and not wanting to take away from that. And that Grandpa Charles is away and has not had a chance to see the baby.

George and Charlotte are in charge y'know... they have to line up their rubber duckies and then give the OK to announce their sibling's name. To be honest, its not going to surprise me if the news come out that the wee ones were very involved in the name selection.

Actually, getting things in order such as Charles meeting his new grandson and perhaps the Queen visiting too happens before the name will be released. Both the Queen and Charles had busy appointment books for today from what I've seen.

Poor Lupo. He's no longer in charge of the duckies.

I'm not sure about that! If I had a 4-year old and a 2 year-old and wanted to keep the name of the new sibling secret, I would not tell them ANYTHING!! I would be afraid they would blab about it to their school mates!!

You've got a pretty good point there. I can remember being 6 years old and my mother wanted to call my newly adopted baby brother "Joel". I looked her straight in the eye and said "His name is Dan". Dan is was. Of course the name wasn't a state secret either at the time.

Charlotte at almost 3 years old would be the kind of kid in a restaurant that would announce to all and sundry "I'm going potty" on the way there and "I went potty" on the way back. My oldest did that to a round of applause from the diners. Gee whiz. So saying the name would definitely not remain a secret long with either George or Charlotte.

Why not ? I don’t see any connection between the two announcements.

You might be right.
I think the announcement will be on Friday. Will give the Queen more time to see her new great grandson before the announcement will be made.

William's name was announced when he was a week old and I heard that Charles'name was revealed when he was a month old.
In Denmark the royal children are officialy nameless until their baptism at the age of 4 months

It's been said that there were disagreements about the names that delayed the announcement after William's birth. Charles wanted one name, Diana another and they couldn't agree for several days.

Average parents discuss it while a woman is still pregnant.

According to Morton's book Diana rejected Albert and Arthur as 'too old' for first names for young boys. She wanted John according to one version I've read. They agreed on William, supposedly named in honour of Prince William of Gloucester, killed in an air crash in 1972.

I think they will make the announcement after the Queen has seen her great grandson.
I thought that that was for before the weekend, but it could be later.

That's right, we had names picked out but wanted to take a good look at them before "officially" choosing!
