Zara Phillips plans on NHS birth and no nannies

Zara Phillips is due to give birth in January. Her due date is January 14—but according to this Daily Express “exclusive” article she feels like she could give birth at any time.  What I love is that she is planning a simple birth in an NHS hospital in Gloucester—the same hospital where Peter’s wife gave birth to their two daughters—instead of going with a super expensive, private hospital.  What I also love is that Zara totally plans to get back to her career as soon as possible and will take the baby on the eventing circuit with her—just like Anne did with her children.  People were complaining, or criticizing her when she announced that she would continue riding and get back into showing as soon as possible (back when she announced the pregnancy), but I love her for that.  There is no reason for her to give up her career just because she has a baby.  And I doubt she’s planning on taking a ridiculous amount of maternity leave, either (side-eye to Kate Middleton).

Camilla hopes for the end of the week/Kate writes a letter/Uncle Gary is a lunatic

Camilla did an engagement in Cornwall and while revealing a plague to commemorate her visit, said, “We are all just waiting by the telephone. We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here.”  All the press outlets are jumping on that saying that the baby will definitely be here by the end of the week.  I want to point out that she said HOPEFUL, they are HOPEFUL that the baby will be here by the end of the week; not that it for sure will be here by the end of the week.  Goodness, people, get a grip.  Seriously, the #GreatKateWait (someone started that hashtag on Twitter and I think it’s funny, it really is fitting) is getting to these reporters.  Or is it the heat in London outside the #LimboWing (another Twitter hashtag that is funny and oh so appropriate)?
