    SYNOPSIS

    BORN TO ROYALTY, a BBC Film produced by Lucy McDowell, Ian Brown & Ingrid Seward. When Prince William married Catherine Middleton on April 29, 2011, millions of people watched the couple take their vows in Westminster Abbey. When, 19 months later, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child - a child that will one day be King or Queen - the news made headlines around the World. In this insightful documentary from BBC Films, we celebrate the birth of William and Kate's baby, the great-grandchild of Elizabeth II with a fascinating portrait of the life that lies ahead for the child who is born to reign. "Born to Royalty" is a feature-length celebration charting the history of the Royal babies born in recent times.

    Whereas my response about ESPN and Sharknado was clearly made in all seriousness. More to the point, when I want to avoid certain news stories, I avoid certain news sources and especially TV news - there's more than enough great content online to stay informed.

    I just don't see why, if someone is so bothered by the (excessive) attention paid to the Zimmerman trial, they'd proceed to bring it up in a wholly unrelated thread.

    Oh, lovely! The one of Mary of Teck is beautiful. And not a strapless gown in the bunch My grandparents have an old family album with photographs going back to the mid 19th century (judging by the fashions), I should take another look at it and see if there are any good bridal pictures there.

    More recent pretty gowns (and a few older ones): Order of Splendor's July brides post.

    Kate please have that baby soon and get Zimmerman off my tv!

    And I know it's off topic but, damn, if you want to commit a crime, just go down to Florida!
    First Casey Anthony and now George Zimmerman.
    Everyone seems to get away with murder in Florida!

    Come on Kate, bring on that baby!

    Why do Europe's royal families dislike The House of Grimaldi so much?

    I'm guessing because they have been a hot mess over the years.

    We named our red tabby Henry after the Tudor kings

    Was there a source? The palace said last month that they would announce once she was in the hospital and news sources have nothing right now.

    My search dug up that Kate left Nottingham Cottage for her parents' house since, apparently, the Nottingham Cottage doesn't have air conditioning. Maybe that was what caused rumors that the baby was on their way?

    I love how those sites are more British than the British. I don't know anyone in Britain with any of those names. Half of them are Scottish anyway, and culturally...that won't fly. No prince will be called Duncan or Fergus!

    It's always amusing to see the BBC play up to the stereotype though
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    It sounds as though the reports are another example of "wishful thinking".

    It seemed she was at her parents' house this weekend while William played in a charity polo match. Nothing I read implied she was staying there any longer than that. I doubt she would be as it is some distance from London and the hospital.

    Reliable sources have that Camilla said today they are hoping for the baby to arrive by the end of the week.

    I"m sure Camilla would love Kate to have the baby on her birthday. I hope not.

    Steph's my fave, 'cause she doesn't give a hot damn about anything. She had her children out of wedlock and everything. So did one of Caroline's sons IIRC. I am only interested in them because I was a big fan of Grandma. I didn't know that Caroline's daughter with that German prince was a figure skater!! Is she any good?

    No harm done! I'm sure that there are going to be lots of false alarms on social media. Those are not as bad as the mags already on shelves with all the details of the delivery, right?
