SoupDragon Mon 03-Dec-12 16:19:53

I want them to have a girl so she can be queen.

headfairy Mon 03-Dec-12 16:20:46

SrirachaGirl Mon 03-Dec-12 16:22:06

Gigondas Mon 03-Dec-12 16:22:34

Does that mean they will revisit the aibu about woman who gave her a baby grow?

Bets for names?

reastie Mon 03-Dec-12 16:23:20

Just heard on fb this. Apparently sky news are reporting it too so it must be true . Very happy for them, but poor Kate with extreme ms <nods in understanding>

It's on the bbc too. Poor Kate. Lovely news but she'll feel like death warmed up at the moment.

FivesAndNorks Mon 03-Dec-12 16:24:15


So pleased for them, I'm such a royalist hoorah! grin

Awww, this makes me smile

...if its true!

headfairy Mon 03-Dec-12 16:25:43

Diana if it's a girl!

Songbird Mon 03-Dec-12 16:26:20

HG is terrible, and she's so thin to begin with - I had HG with DS2 and lost 2 stone, it was awful.

RabidCarrot Mon 03-Dec-12 16:28:19

So will she be joining Mumsnet now?

CleansLate Mon 03-Dec-12 16:29:31

Am I right in thinking that whatever the gender of the baby it'll be the monarch? So a Queen or a King one day?

Wonder what the name will be - doubt they will go along with their peers and beget a Queen Maisie.

FivesAndNorks Mon 03-Dec-12 16:29:35

Just heard it on the radio so it must be

FivesAndNorks Mon 03-Dec-12 16:30:29

Names: Arthur for a boy
Victoria for a girl

You read it here first

RabidCarrot Mon 03-Dec-12 16:33:20

Well I hope they have a boy as if they have a daughter they will start pestering me to let her marry one of my sons and I wont allow it I tell you I wont grin

So what's Kate's MN nickname going to be, hm? wink

BraveLilBear Mon 03-Dec-12 16:36:13

I just gave a small inappropriate whoop of delight at this news. I'm not even a royalist, but totally love these two.

Remember thinking when I saw her at that prep school on Friday playing hockey in high heels that she couldn't possibly be pregnant and manage that!

So happy for her. Hope she feels better soon - must be nearly 12 weeks if they're being brave and announcing it... so a June royal arrival?

FivesAndNorks Mon 03-Dec-12 16:38:03

She's already been on mn, remember the webchat ;)
Couldn't tell if they meant to announce it or if their hand was forced because of her admission

CleansLate Mon 03-Dec-12 16:39:15

I think the queen was saving it up for her speech xmas day. Reckon it's v early days but they couldn't keep it quiet once she was hospitalised.

ssd Mon 03-Dec-12 16:42:14

lovely news, am not a royalist at all, but am happy for anyone who is pregnant


reastie Mon 03-Dec-12 17:05:21

I wondered that too Norks - I'm wonder how far along she is. I'm assuming past 12 weeks or they'd be too nervy to mention it even if she had been hospitalised for hyperemesis. Hopefully it will give publicity to hyperemesis too as I came up against alot of 'eat ginger biscuits and you'll be fine' and 'I only had it in the evenings though are you sure it's all the time' type of useful hmm comments

BraveLilBear Mon 03-Dec-12 17:11:43

I agree - I think there'll be more news in the Xmas Day speech.

I also think that there is an element that yes, their hand has been forced - she's probably had to cancel some engagements to accommodate for HG, but also, if something does go wrong, they'll have an enormous amount of public sympathy and support.

Did see some speculation somewhere a few weeks ago that she might be pg with twins - if the sickness thing is true then maybe that's a possibility?

Really hoping mum and baby(babies?!) are well (soon).

SoupDragon Mon 03-Dec-12 17:17:47

The radio One news said it was "early days" but they'd had to announce it because of the hospitalisation.

I wonder will it be early July, making her about 15 weeks.
