Balance in all things. There's negatives to be found in positives and positives to be found in negatives if we look for it.

I think we're really getting off track here with discussing readings. As a tarot reader myself, I know that any reading only presents possibilities and probabilities and unless one is using Elder Futhark runes, its not "written in stone". Divination methods are tools and have no power in and of themselves.

Back to Harry and Meghan's first child and languages and education and whatever, I think the parents will know their child's inclinations as they watch him/her grow and the only language they're going to worry about at first is that all important first word which, if statistics are right, will be "Dada".

They'll make the right decisions when the time comes to make that decision.

No good without bad. No light without dark.

While I agree with you in general - the universe is trying to be balanced!v- but at the moment I feel there is too much emphasis on the negativity. Greed, hate, envy are such strong emotions in so many people, so I personally are happy when people try to be positive and to share the good vibes. That is my impression of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as well: they are in their given situation and they try to do good from that. I think they will teach their child to accept where and who you are and to try to change the world for the better.


As for getting help with raising their little one - I think the non-stop campaign against Meghan, the amount of money spent on getting people to betray her trust, her own paternal family right at the front, all that must have left a mark on Meghan. And we know that both William and Harry have trust issues anyway. So I think the Sussexes will do what the Cambridges did: hire a Norland nanny with no emotional strings attached to anything British. I think Norland nannies are well aware that they not only sell their competence and motherliness to the family that employs them, but their utmost loyality. Betraying the British Royal family is surely such a no-go for a nanny from that institute that I cannot imagine one of them to do it. IMHO, of course.

I've moved several posts regarding a nanny for the new Sussex baby to the http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...es-3905-5.html thread as the topic is quite specific and that thread is an interesting one to read.

Has anyone noticed the tiny cues in Harry's body language that show how much more attentive he's become of Meghan since they surfaced as a pair at Invictus 2016? There, he seemed rather awkward, neglecting to introduce her to people present and so forth. But today, he moved with military dispatch to unobtrusively monitor Meghan's descent down the steps at the exit of Canada House.This, more than the rapport he has with little kids, tells me he's going to be a great father.


I like to imagine how he felt when he first heard Baby Sussex' heartbeat or felt the baby move in response to his voice.


If Meghan were smart she'd encourage Harry to read to the Baby Sussex to expose it more to Harry's voice.

Harry was certainly holding her tightly coming down those steps. It is one of those difficult situations that protocol provides as, in the normal course of life Meghan would have also have had her hand on the railing but, since the diplomat was on her right by the rail Harry looked decidedly serious.

It looks to me as if she has dropped before today’s appearances which would confirm my guess of the due date a month from now

During their visit to Canada House, there was a close-up in one of the videos of Meghan's hand, where we could see she was only wearing her weddng ring. Someone suggested that she must have removed the engagement ring due to swelling at this stage of her pregnancy.

I also read in a recent People article that Meghan plans to make her own baby food to ensure the healthy freshness of the ingredients. So from all reports, Meghan likes to do her own thing in all things, but surely they have cleaning help, so she's freed up from that mundane but necessary task!

ETA: I'm mainly referencing the fact that Meghan was used to being independent and doing her own thing, so much so that she still does her own makeup, and she's her own stylist for the most part, and she cooks everyday, so we're told. So of course, making baby food is not a stretch or anything unusual. It's just the idea that she really doesn't need to do as much of this herself as a royal. But clearly, she comes from a normal, independent, working-class background and so she's accustomed to doing things for herself. I'm sure that suits Harry fine, as I once read an article where he was reported as saying that he likes to shop for his own food and he's determined that his future children will be able to live life as normally as possible.

I don't believe everything I read, whether negative or positive, unless it's posted on official announcement. Other than that, it is just people's opinions.

Making fresh baby food isn't unusual or particularly time consuming or difficult but again it's just fluffy speculation/filler as we get closer to the birth but there's no official announcements.

Yes, most parents I know make their baby's food from scratch.
Commercially available food is a help for the odd times when it can't be easily made.

IMO, that is pure speculation. How is People expected to know what Meghan plans?

I think predicting that Meghan plans to make baby food is a) pure guesswork and b) one of the safest speculative predictions that they could make. Most parents mash bananas and puree carrots at one point or another, even if that's all they do, and most parents do a lot more than that.

I remember last fall some tabloid was saying Meghan was going to give birth under water (presumably because that's what everyone in California does). Then there was that story about her hiring a doula.


I'm expecting to be told next that Meghan's having herself helicoptered to the remote Zen monastery at Tassajara to give birth (under water) at their mineral springs while the monks chant, and to get pointers from the head chef of their renowned kitchen (a celibate monk) on making baby food made from organic, locally-sourced, vegetarian ingredients. ::eyeroll::

You could easily get a job as a journalist for the Daily Mail! That was brilliant!

I love it!! You left out the part though where they name the child "Grasshopper"

While I’m sure these stories were completely made up, I’d like to point out that water births, doulas and midwives are completely normal in the UK and many European countries.

Water births, doulas and midwives are fairly mainstream in the US, too, so I'm not sure why the tabloid thought that this would be shocking to anyone who has been in a maternity ward in the last 20 years. Like most of the speculation, it's poorly thought out speculation.

I would think because the royal family is always being portrayed as super conservative and traditional. And there is nothing traditional about a water birth with a doula and no doctor. Any way of painting Meghan as a royal rebel, breaking away with 'royal tradition' they will bring out.

Waiting for the 'the queen and all royal women have used the same brand of baby food and Meghan refuses to follow their lead'.

Meghan is interested in healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. I realize that a lot of this unconfirmed stuff is speculative. However, we do know that Meghan's friends clearly were given the nod to share info about Meghan with People.

The Duchess' friends already told People that Meghan cooks for herself and husband. The friends may also have told People other details such as Meghan's desire to make her own baby food. The People editors could also be guessing or extrapolating. It's not a big deal. We do know that Meghan loves to cook, and she enjoys working hard and staying busy.

As far as giving birth, if Meghan and the baby are judged to be in optimal health when she goes into labor and there are no complications, Meghan most likely will try to give birth naturally and avoid using drugs. I was reading about the fact that taking classes prepares mothers (and fathers) for the birth experience, in terms of how to breath and how to stay relaxed to minimize pain as much as possible. Meghan has a jump start because she already eats well and she is super knowledgeable about her body, having practiced yoga and meditation for years.

Anyway Oona, you forgot about Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy, Massage Therapy, and Electrical Stimulation (TENS).
