    Well shoot, you beat me to it. I was just going to start a rumor that she was having twins just to mess with the public's heads.

    10 Quotes from Queen Victoria on the Miseries of Royal Motherhood

    Queen Victoria (1819-1901) might be considered the queen of working mothers. She had nine children and ruled the largest empire on earth. But Victoria—Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, and Empress of India—detested babies, childbirth, and all that muck.

    She wrote volumes of letters, both official and personal. Occasionally her true feeling leaked through her official letters, but in her private ones, notably those written to her firstborn daughter Victoria The Princess Royal (Vicky), they positively soaked the page. Below are some choice words Her Majesty had for the business of babies.

    I was convinced it would be today - 18th - but as nothing is being reported on her movements I guess I'm wrong . OK next guess will be for Sunday 21st - but if I were Kate I would be screaming for them to induce me what with the heat we are having at the moment (I know it might not be hot compared to some of you but it is for us here in the UK )

    Nah, there are easier ways of dealing with the situation. Invite people over for a dinner party, get tickets to the ballet, etc.

    I know someone whose middle name is O (just the letter) because his mother missed a performance of Othello by Placido Domingo when he was born.

    Also, saw yet another tabloid with delivery details yesterday. Camilla apparently collapsed in a drunken stupor during Kate's labor, according to this one.

    Honestly, if I was Kate I would have paid (donated?) a lot of money to the hospital to set up for me, publicize that I'd be there, let photographers camp out there; and then I would go to another hospital.

    It surprises me that the royal use regular hospitals - you'd think that they could get most treatments at home, no? Better security and privacy? Many people give birth at home after all.

    I think they were in a bad position. Not telling any details about where she would give birth would have made the press get even more invasive as they tried to figure it out by themselves. Explaining exactly how it will go, on the other hand, led to this circus at the hospital. They couldn't win either way.

    I've seen suggestions that they lied and she will be somewhere else. I have hard time believing that as it would be a PR disaster for the Palace to have intentionally lied to the world.

    Not that many, certainly not in the UK, and I can't imagine they'd risk it with this being a first child.

    IIRC, home births are far more common in the Netherlands, but the Dutch princesses were nonetheless born in hospital, not at home.

    I'm with you! What a mess they are in.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    I agree PDilemma - they won't lie to the world, especially for such an important occasion, not their style. Part of the thinking is also likely a feeling of obligation to their subjects, by keeping them informed about something of such great interest and importance. Plus, this is exactly how it was for William - same hospital, same method of informing the public (with the addition of Palace's internet channels of course ).
