    I don't doubt or underestimate the seriousness and unpleasantness of severe morning sickness. There's nothing worse than puking non-stop or feeling you're about to. It seems to be mostly the luck of the draw. I was very lucky and didn't feel even slightly queasy. My BFF was badly afflicted but she's always been a "pukey" person anyway - she takes her own towel and bucket on car trips and to parties LOL - so maybe that makes a difference. I honestly can't remember the last time I threw up but it's many years.

    We aren't going to get a QEIII for many years either. If all goes according to plan the first female direct heir would be Prince George's daughter if she's the firstborn. I agree that QEII has been an exemplary monarch who hasn't put a foot wrong in 60 years apart from a bit of a wobble around the time of Diana's death. I don't think we will fully realise the contribution the queen has made until after she's gone.

    GIRL ABOUT TOWN: Kate and Wills to get a nurse for baby No 2: Prince George is so exhausting they want a professional this time | Mail Online

    Kate and Wills to get a nurse for baby No 2: Prince George is so exhausting they want a professional this time
    By Charlotte Griffiths for The Mail on Sunday
    Published: 16:21 EST, 13 September 2014 | Updated: 18:18 EST, 13 September 2014

    They broke with Royal tradition when they chose not to employ a full-time nanny for Prince George – but second time around, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided to hire a maternity nurse.

    ‘It was really hard work with George and there were lots of sleepless nights,’ a source close to the couple tells me.

    ‘So Kate has said she’s going to have help with the next one.’


    Royal rearing: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, pictured showing off new-born Prince George last summer, have already begun making arrangements to use a maternity nurse with baby number two

    Rather than relying entirely on their family members for help, the Cambridges have already begun making arrangements to use a professional in the early stages after her baby’s birth.

    The Duchess has spent the past six days being treated for the severe morning sickness condition hyperemesis gravidarum, but I am told that the couple plan to make the move to their new home at Amner Hall in Norfolk as soon as Kate is deemed well enough.

    William and Kate have spent the past few weeks overseeing refurbishments and sources say they are eager to settle in quickly – and return there as soon as possible after the birth.

    The arrangements are in contrast to the first Royal birth, when William and Kate retreated to the Middletons’ family home in Bucklebury.

    ‘There is a nanny annex and a guest suite with plenty of space for Kate’s family,’ a friend of the couple told me. ‘Kate and William plan to go to their own family home after the birth.


    Demanding: The reason why the Cambridges are choosing to have a maternity nurse is allegedly due to the 'hard work' of raising Prince George


    Rebel prince: The Duke and Duchess have had 'many sleepless nights' with young Prince George

    ‘Kate is more confident now. This is all about the start of a new life for them and the family.’

    While the couple are choosing to base their family in Norfolk, the new baby will be delivered in London – in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, where Prince George was born in July last year.

    Following the retirement of the Queen’s surgeon and gynaecologist of 20 years, Marcus Setchell, I understand that the baby will be delivered by Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe Beeston, who both assisted at the birth of Prince George and are on the Duchess’s call sheet of specialists.

    When the family are in Norfolk they will have the use of the Queen’s on-call doctor in the area.

    The couple confided only recently to friends that they had wanted to try for another baby this summer.

    ‘It was the plan, but they are surprised and of course delighted it has happened so quickly,’ my source added.


    Royal home: The new baby's first home is said to be Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk as Wills and Kate shun London for the countryside

    ‘They both wanted a short age gap between George and his sibling, and they would love a little sister for George.

    ‘There’s just a year between Kate and her sister Pippa and they are very close. Kate and William want that for George too.’

    Babies are hard work and involve sleepless nights?!

    Why didn't anyone warn them about that beforehand?

    Thank God they'll have a maternity nurse this time, who knew babies could be so exhausting?

    All royals have nurses/nannies. I don't know why this is a story.

    that "source " is not very helpful. Statements like that do not make them any more likable to the hard-working, tax paying public.

    They're royalty - I don't know why the hard working, tax paying public expects them to be relatable and normal and takes it personally when they live in a life of luxury.

    Some royals do work at their royals duties, and others who aren't paid by the taxpayers have private sector interests, like Princess Martha of Norway, who pretty much gave up her HRH so she could work (and she married a commoner). And yeah, they have people helping them. To me, it looks like Kate and Will are doing nothing.

    Then Britain should vote to become a republic. But if they don't, and they maintain their royals under the current rules, then they're paying then to make appearances and live a royal lifestyle. But don't forget they're also privately wealthy - the queen is one of the richest women in the world, and her children and grandchildren will inherit that wealth, so it's not like they're ever going to live like commoners anyway.

    The criticism of Will and Kate is that they are not doing a sufficient level of royal work, and when explanations are given regarding their light schedule, their PR machine claims that they are trying to lead "normal" lives including spending time being parents. Then it comes out that Will and Kate are adhering to the same construct of child care that has been in place for generations: nannies, a nursery consisting of a suite of rooms including a full-service kitchen, parents leaving the child for significant periods, etc., except rather than leaving the kid to tour the Commonwealth a la the current monarch, Will and Kate take a vacation trip to the Maldives.

    I don't think that Britain will vote to become a republic, but I think that the groundwork is being laid for the tax payer funded trappings of being a British royal to be decreased. As you noted the Queen has great personal wealth, therefore one way or another, her children and grandchildren are going to live wealthy lifestyles, but I would not be surprised if by the time George becomes King, that the BRF are just another set of European royals.

It seems to be mostly the luck of the draw. I was very lucky and didn't feel even slightly queasy. My BFF was badly afflicted but she's always been a "pukey" person anyway - she takes her own towel and bucket on car trips and to parties LOL - so maybe that makes a difference. I honestly can't remember the last time I threw up but it's many years.

    Radar Online | Pin Thin Kate Middleton Bares Bitty Baby Bump For The First Time

    World Exclusive Photos: Pin Thin Kate Middleton Bares Bitty Baby Bump For The First Time — Is She Too Skinny?

    Posted on Sep 17, 2014 @ 3:54AM



    By George, the royal heir is getting a sibling! And only RadarOnline.com has the world’s first glimpse at Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s itty bitty baby bump, which she bared for the first time during a recent night out with husband Prince William.

    Wills and his wife were spotted dining at the cozy King’s Head pub in Great Bircham on Thursday September 11 at around 7:45 p.m.

    Though they have a country home, Anmer Hall, nearby, “Locals were stunned to see the royal couple saunter in and sit at a quiet table in the corner,” a source tells Radar.

    PHOTOS: SEE KATE’S BUMP

    Guarded by four armed Royal Protection Squad officers, they both dined on black bream (a freshwater fish) with roasted vegetables on a bed of spinach, and shared a single vanilla ice cream — with two spoons! — for dessert. Notably, Middleton drank water, while William opted for red wine.

    “Towards the end of the meal, a couple of stunned locals introduced themselves to the royal couple and shook their hands,” the source says, before they left around 10 p.m.

    A hearty meal is certainly a rarity these days for the royal mama, who has been suffering from debilitating morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum, according to reports. The brutal condition can even cause weight loss in pregnant moms-to-be, according to docs, and Middleton certainly looked especially thin. Her first pregnancy, with George, was marred by a bout of the ailment as well.
