...for what it's worth, from an electrician who was working at Windsor Castle, that MM had her baby yesterday and it's a boy.
I pooh-poohed the news but he said that he overheard a footman being told by a woman in the room next to one where he was working.
He said Harry being at the Marathon must have been to put people off the scent as the couple said publicly that they would not make any announcement until several days after the birth.
It remains to be seen whether he's telling the truth...hmm

Well, I've heard from someone who's related to someone who works in Kensington Palace that William is having an affair and everyone is on high alert to squash the story!

Chinese whispers eh!

Yours might be, mine isn't.

MawBroonsback Mon 29-Apr-19 22:17:16

Well don’t tell anybody! Sssh! Mums the word!

My friend was talking to someone about a new supermarket planned for our town. She said 'Shame it's not a Waitrose.'

A few seconds later, she heard a person who'd been standing behind her said to her friend 'I hear there's a Waitrose opening in town!'.

And that's how rumours start. grin

G54....^yours might be, mine isn't^
As you said it remains to be seen.

To be honest I'm not that interested.

I heard a rumour from a reliable source that Theresa May is........on second thoughts I promised not to say 😳

Mum's (mum is)

Well it will be born and there's a 50% chance of a boy so not much of a wager.

I heard a rumour 5 years ago that Queenie was abdicating. What happened there?

MawBroonsback Mon 29-Apr-19 23:00:03

OMG-heinous crime!
ipad omitted the apostrophe! And I didn’t notice!
Hanging offence!
Actually GG I don’t need you to correct my grammar OR my spelling. (An OU degree was it? Harrumph! )

Namsnanny Mon 29-Apr-19 23:27:24

Can someone work out and tell me, where in line to the throne, the said baby will be .....I've never understood it.

BradfordLass72 Mon 29-Apr-19 23:44:58

True or not, I hope the babe and the elderly prima gravidae are both well.

Ailsa43 Mon 29-Apr-19 23:59:14

crazyH According to the telegraph the baby will be7th in line to the throne, as Harry is 6th... ..and will be pushed further down the line if Catherine has another child..

BlueBelle Tue 30-Apr-19 05:18:29

Well a footman I know told me that Harry is changing gender and will need to be known as Harriette in the future Don’t tell anyone though
Pretty likely the baby will be a boy, boys seems prevalent in the family

I heard it was twins! I hardly think Harry would go to the London Marathon leaving Meghan in labour!

Chewbacca Tue 30-Apr-19 08:01:40

I've heard it, on good authority, that Meghan isn't really pregnant at all and has just had a really bad dose of excess gas.

MawBroonsback Tue 30-Apr-19 08:14:21

They must be all ears in Royal Berkshire 👂 👂 👂 not to mention Surrey grin

Tut tut Maw what were you thinking to omit an apostrophe - not sure if I can continue on Gransnet now. I for one am pleased to see your back or even glad you're backgrin

MawBroonsback Tue 30-Apr-19 09:04:19

Thank you kindly!

Anniebach Tue 30-Apr-19 09:12:13

Parsley3 Tue 30-Apr-19 09:30:44

Meghan has had twins! A boy and a girl. I heard it in a queue for the bus so it must be true.
