Kate in early stages of labour

Anniebach Mon 23-Apr-18 08:33:24

So sorry forgot I had started a thread some time ago, ?

Teetime Mon 23-Apr-18 08:43:59

Oh well I hope its merciful and mother and the baby are safe and healthy.

Panache Mon 23-Apr-18 08:44:40

The World is agog and awaiting the news..........trusting that both mother and babe will be fine.
Exciting time for the Royals indeed.
A rather lovely birthday gift (almost) for our Queen.

A St George's Day baby - if it's delivered before midnight!

glammanana Mon 23-Apr-18 09:13:40

Annie It may not be too long with it being the 3rd ?
I think we may have another princess this time but I'm usually wrong .
Hoping she has a trouble free delivery and mother & baby are fine.
St Georges Day baby perhaps?

lemongrove Mon 23-Apr-18 09:13:49

Pity the name George is already taken!
Are we taking bets on names?
You can run the book Annie grin
Alice or Philip sez I.
A tenner on either.

Book open for sex and name of new little Windsor ?

Could they choose Georgina or would that be too obvioussmile.

Hope all goes well. No doubt she'll be relieved when it's all over.

Anniebach Mon 23-Apr-18 09:18:47

There was a rather infamous Georgiana Spencer ,?

lemongrove Mon 23-Apr-18 09:21:03

Oh yes, she was a girl alright, Georgiana!

glammanana Mon 23-Apr-18 09:25:51

Annie I'm thinking maybe
Victoria or Alice for a baby girl
Arthur or Albert for a baby boy.
Not very fashionable names but certainly will be on the lists I think.

nigglynellie Mon 23-Apr-18 09:46:26

Alice or Phillip, maybe Victoria or Alfred, Arthur or Mary? We shall know soon enough. grin

kittylester Mon 23-Apr-18 09:46:56

Well, I'm backing Alice for a girl as one of our daughters has that name - it has been in both mine and Dh's family for generations. We already have an Albert George (Bertie) and a Charlotte (Lottie) so we are feeling quite royal.

ninathenana Mon 23-Apr-18 09:50:05


Alice is very fashionable ? I had thought Victoria.
Arthur makes me think of Stacey's baby in 'Enders. Maybe James ?

Anniebach Mon 23-Apr-18 09:50:38

What about Caroline ? Kate's mum is Carol and there was a Queen Caroline

POGS Mon 23-Apr-18 10:02:34

Ah but if it's a girl we could have our own Princess Beatrix which means 'blessed ' but for the 21st centuary ' A brexit'.

I think Kate and William are fairly traditional and if it's a little girl she will be Elizabeth , a boy Michael after her father.

MawBroon Mon 23-Apr-18 10:05:02

We already have Andrew’s Beatrice though don’t we?

MawBroon Mon 23-Apr-18 10:05:38

Sorry POGS a bit slow today grin

dogsmother Mon 23-Apr-18 10:06:31

I’m with a boy, not sure of Louis out of the question?

Luckygirl Mon 23-Apr-18 10:07:52

Tracy or Kyle I reckon.

Rosina Mon 23-Apr-18 10:16:47

I'm guessing a boy with Philip in there somewhere- perhaps Charles Philip? I'm never right with these guesses so it will probably be a girl.

KatyK Mon 23-Apr-18 10:16:56

I am always astounded that people camp out outside the hospital awaiting a royal birth. confused

Anniebach Mon 23-Apr-18 10:17:11

Seems Mary is favourite with the bookies , according to the news

Gerispringer Mon 23-Apr-18 10:18:18

I think it will be either a boy or a girl?
Alice or Arthur are the bookies favourites.
