Eeeee, a Royal baby will be lovely. I'm just a bit concerned about them announcing it so early. I hope to goodness that all goes well for them and that in 6 months they have a new baby. Wishing her all the best for a happy, quick and healthy pregnancy.

Well, what a lovely and generous comment from you, JennyWren. I agree its very early days for so much publicity.

Luckily they should be able to make ends meet as their family are in receipt of benefits.

The papers will be full of this story for the next 6 months. Groan! I cannot be the only one who is really not interested.

Kate and Wills are having a baby. Congrats,

Now that puts the baby 3rd in line to the throne.


If Kate has a baby girl, she may become the first female king, according to Nick Clegg who said in an interview today "The old fashioned rules where only a boy could become a king and his older sister was not allowed to, those rules will be swept aside..."

This might not be the case of course...a lot depends on the Queen's health. She has made it clear many times that she will reign until her death...if she lives to the same age as her mother that is still a long time. Charles of course is already an old man.......if he should sucumbe before the  Queen then the line of succession will pass to Andrew...and then his children. Just a thought.
Errr no. The succession is ordered by male-preference (cognatic) primogeniture. A person is always immediately followed in the succession by his or her own legitimate descendants (his or her line) except for any legitimate descendants who already appear higher in the line of succession. A person's sons and their lines all come before a person's daughters and their lines. Older sons and their lines come before younger sons and their lines. Older daughters and their lines come before younger daughters and their lines, So, Charles' line (William (then possible children) then Harry (then possible children)) come before Andrew. Once someone is in the direct line of succession, the only way they can not become king/queen is by dying (or abdication).

Sorry, I'm a born pedant. You have no idea how much my wife suffers from my pedantry.
