Apparently, despite initial panic at Kate's dramatic hospital dash from her parent's mansion in Bucklebury on Monday, the fact that she's suffering HG has an underlying silver-lining - which is that medics say it's a sign that the pregnancy's progressing well. It's thought to be caused by a sudden spike in hormone levels which is why it's often more common in women expecting multiple pregnancies.
If the pregnancy was as a result of IVF and timed carefully to coincide with the end of an extremely successful year from a PR point of view for the Royal family and Great Britain then not only could it be likely that Catherine's expecting twins, they also could have pre-selected the sex. So that would mean... A boy? A boy and a girl per their wish? I'm sure Kate's not to posh to push, but I bet she's too posh to put on pregnancy weight more than once. This is pure speculation on my part of course but as I keep saying, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are raking in much-needed MILLIONS in tourism money from across the globe for the United Kingdom. And, we had the wedding last year, the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics and Paralympics this year, a bonny baby being dangled over the balcony at Buckingham Palace next June and the Christening, then of course Charles' Coronation perhaps in 2014 and maybe another baby for Wills and Kate in, say, 2015. Lots to look forward to. And much to celebrate. Not least for the Middletons - who have made millions (their new Georgian mansion is worth £4.6 million, they moved from their four-bed cottage earlier this year) in selling street party bunting and other tat from their website for the normals to fete their daughter's life choices. Lucky Harry's sliding down the throne succession line- leaving him free to bang as much posh totty as he likes and get hammered with Guy Pelly and co. at Boujis, shoot guns in Afghanistan under the guise of working tirelessly for granny, then show his face wearing his army regalia which has been carefully ironed and laid out on his bed for him by a butler and smile and wave whenever there's an official family 'do' to attend. What a life eh? - I bet he's chuffed he was the second-born in that family. Still, he sent a message from the front line to Catherine which read: 'Get well soon, sis'. Short and to the point I suppose, but I'm convinced that he texted this to her with a sad smiley at the end. The House of Windsor has not been this popular on a worldwide scale EVER thanks to our expectant couple and, rather than being some sad, rainy island populated by grey-looking people with bad dentistry, suddenly Britannia's cool again. And, that's all thanks to the daughter of a British Airways air hostess from Berkshire who was initially deemed by the stuffy Royals not aristocratic enough to bear a future monarch. Perhaps Wills and Kate's baby was conceived in the dizzy heights of passion while they were staying in a candlelit hut in the Solomon Islands with no room service and TV so they got it ON and it's the most romantic thing ever. And, after almost twelve years together there can be no doubt that they are indeed deeply in love, but oh to be a fly on the wall in certain behind-closed-doors meetings with only a few carefully-chosen attendees at Clarence House eh? On a final note, the two most hilarious things I've seen as the world goes wild over a woman being up the duff is America's FOX NEWS running with the headline that Kate had a 'biscuit' in the oven, (guys, it's 'bun') on Monday and some wag on twitter suggesting that the couple name their child 'Legoland', as it's surname would be Windsor. Legoland Windsor. Brilliant. Do it Kate, do it for your country, do it for the comedy factor.
