The Lindo Wing have put up no parking signs 9th to 30th April. Barriers have been set up.

I do hope it's an uncomplicated and quick birth. Not days of news showing the doors into the wing, and interviews with excited royalists .

Oh yes. I remember those doors, Annie. We switched off and went out having decided life was too short to stare at a couple of doors, came back, switched on and guess what was still on the telly? grin

Anniebach Mon 09-Apr-18 18:47:29

How exciting Glammananna , all the very best of good wishes and let us know when little one arrives

MissAdventure Mon 09-Apr-18 18:48:25

Is it Kate who is due to have a baby? (I'm not much of a royalist!) smile
Still, what's not to like about a new little life..

Anniebach Mon 09-Apr-18 18:49:54

Those blasted doors merlot , it was just a few days but seemed to go on and on and on, switch news channels and yes - those doors

Anniebach Mon 09-Apr-18 18:53:12

A new baby is wonderful MissAdventure, but can we not just have the announcement not the cameras waiting outside, bet they are there already and the birth is announced at Buck House

MissAdventure Mon 09-Apr-18 18:55:41

Ah yes, I see now. It does sort of take the edge off it all.
Bet the camera people get bored with waiting!

Anniebach Mon 09-Apr-18 18:56:56

And wet ?

We have an appointment at that hospital tomorrow maybe we’ll get lucky ?

Anniebach Mon 09-Apr-18 19:13:38

Tanith, do enter by those doors ?

M0nica Mon 09-Apr-18 19:22:17

Given who the OP is, I expected this thread to be all about the new Centrist party about to be formed. If it survives the birth, it looks like arriving with a silver spoon in its mouth as well.

tanith Mon 09-Apr-18 19:23:14

Haha I would but then OH would wonder why I was taking him into the Private Gynea Wing ?

Jalima1108 Mon 09-Apr-18 19:26:28

Will this be an Aries baby?
Best of luck to William and Kate then grin

Jalima1108 Mon 09-Apr-18 19:27:21

Give us a wave on your way out again tanith!

tanith Mon 09-Apr-18 19:44:57

Ok, if you see a silver haired woman in black jeggings and a pale grey coatigan waving frantically you’ll know who!?? I’ll probably trip on the steps

Jalima1108 Mon 09-Apr-18 19:54:37

With a royal babe in arms?

Don't trip when you're holding the 5th? in line to the throne!

Anniebach Mon 09-Apr-18 22:34:47

Tanith, don't let us down and go a **e up,please ?

sparkly1000 Mon 09-Apr-18 22:38:47

It was stated in the early stages of Kate's pregnancy that it would be a home birth ie. Kensington Palace. Obviously there has been further developments. Wishing them all well.

Jalima1108 Mon 09-Apr-18 22:39:30

I will have my finger on the 'record' button

ps I hope your DH will be treated just as well as any royal would be. Good luck.

janeainsworth Mon 09-Apr-18 22:50:27

Monica I thought the same as you.
I can’t help feeling that although I personally like Nick Clegg, it might have been better if he had left his quasi-announcement to someone else.

paddyann Tue 10-Apr-18 00:57:24

I dont believe this child is any more important than every other born this month or next or ever.I just wish others would see the royal family for the medieval system it is.If people stopped all this royal watching/worship maybe they would go off and live ordinary lives.Lets face it none of them would have volunteered for the "job" or be happy to do it if it involved a council flat and a minimum wage!They are in it for what they can get .

Anniebach Tue 10-Apr-18 03:20:00

unbelievable , a thread about parking restrictions and cameras filming doors for days brings out the strangest comments, what is the connection with a political partiy , a retired politician and council tenants , not Brexit next please

tanith Tue 10-Apr-18 06:43:53

Jalima thanks this is just a check up and Annie I won’t let you down.
