    Ah! Finally! Not that I really care but for the attention to stop. I’m more curious to see if it would be a red dress when she comes out.

    Woo! Was so excited to hear this finally. Lets hope for a safe and speedy delivery… And for maybe a boy.

    I won’t be too bothered if it is a girl but lets just wait and see.

    This is my first comment on here as well but I have been reading for ages. Love this blog, very well written and thoughtful.

    🙂

      Hi Jemma!! Thank you, and glad to have you commenting! I think we all are either excited or relieved (or just want the royal baby mania to be over with) to hear the news of the labor and imminent birth. Kate was in labor for about 10 hours with George and it’s already been 5 hours since she was admitted this time, so not too long now.

    Oh and should we call it 4.00 am that it took Carole a total of like two hours to get her name in the mix.
