A six years ago old video interview with Prince Harry has surfaced on some Instagram accounts (I do not know how to link it yet) of him advocating for Duchess Kate to be given privacy as a new mother to be.

If you change the date and age the face (he is much younger in that video), it seems like something he is saying now.

I'll try to see I can link the video.

Hopefully Meghan will go into labour in the wee small hours in UK so it will be my daytime and for once I will be ahead! :))

Be prepared for a baby this weekend. After I finish work tomorrow morning, I am off for three days but out of town and away from internet. Perfect time for the baby to come while I cant discus.

I agree she is likely over due by a few days. I don't think Doria came too far in advance. Even if she had her 12 week scan the day of Eugenie's wedding and was exactly 12 weeks, she would be due. The May part seems to have been Meghan understanding first babies can come late.

I've seen that video. It was when he was on his base. He was very clear in his opinion that the press leave Kate alone and allow her to just be a mother. This puts in perspective how he is acting with his own wife and child. No should be surprised it is going to be as private as they can make it.

As for Baby Sussex, I notice some of the press setting up shop in Windsor now. Chris Ship was on GMB and said this weekend is Meghans due date. Emily said the same a few days ago. Babies have their own schedule but it would seem the media is anticipating this weekend.

I agree with you, picking the 23 or 24th as the due date and Harry's non scheduled ANZAC presence adds to it, as well as when they announced the pregnancy. Also, because of her age, I don't think they'll let her go too long without induction, no more than a week my guess

If thatīs the case, she is almost exactly overdue as my sis in law. Iīm betting for my niece to be born on the same day as the Sussex baby. That would be a great coincidence. My sis in law is hoping theirs will be a boy, so he can marry her daughter lol.

Crazy reporting continues. It is Saturday morning here and our tv shows photos of an Ambulance pulled up outside Windsor Castle. Apparently they went inside a local shop for some lunch.
[U]The reporting said; an Ambulance pulled up outside Harry and Meghans home!!!
As we all know here Frogmore cottage is quite a distance from Windsor.
They also said that Meghan is due Today!!

Maybe we get another picture 'from behind'; that would be quite different (and leave everyone unsatisfied)

Well, Sussex baby has the whole day left to be born on the same day as my niece because she decided a Dutch girl ought to be born on the birthday of the Dutch King. So itīs a bit of a Royal birthday here anyway.

Congratulations Aunt Empress Merel!! I'm happy to hear that the baby has arrived safely and happily into a very pleased family. Now all that's left is for Baby Sussex to make his/her appearance today to make it complete!

I liked their 'from behind' pictures actually. Showed what they see, hundreds of people being happy for them, the silhouette against a backdrop of fireworks, looking out towards their new life together, was particularly romantic. There were also any number of standard front facing photos as well. Hundreds of them from the various media and paps as well. The world was awash with them.

More power to anyone who chooses to do their own thing I say. I always find that immensley satisfying.

I'm in agreement. Actually I think the picture of Harry and Meghan being shown from behind with their hands clasped behind their backs while they gaze at the fireworks going off is one of the most romantic and artistic photographs I've seen from a royal wedding yet. Its not showing the bride and the groom but rather their happiness and their mood of celebration as their wedding day is marked by glorious bursts of colors in the sky. There were plenty of other pictures released that showed their happy faces and it was so nice to see something so totally different and touching and so very personal. At least I thought so.

99% of the population has predicted a baby GIRL? Why, I have no idea? Maybe a midwife could explain? I mean the whole world can't be wrong! Only a small percentage are saying Boy!

So early MAY, and a GIRL.

I always find a lot of the from back photos to be more intimate. They aren’t just posing for the cameras, but going about things as them. There is a feeling of just being them rather than posing for the cameras. Especially the Fiji photos. A lot of us followed that visit and knew the crowd that came for them and it was exciting and exhilarating. But I thought the photo the shared looked quite intimate from behind the scenes.

That and we can see what they are seeing from their perspective.

I personally hope they post a black and white picture of the baby's foot and call it a day. :)
