A statement regarding the Royal Baby

A statement regarding the Royal Baby.

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a daughter in July.

“Their Royal Highnesses wish to announce the sex of the royal baby in the hopes that it will quell speculation surrounding The Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy.” A spokesperson has confirmed.

“They are over the moon,” a pal confirms. “Carole is already unpacking Kate and Pippa’s babygros!”

“Kate has known for some time,” a source reveals, “When she visited Grimsby and the woman in the crowd asked about a daughter, Kate worried that she had given the game away.”

According to a royal source, when Camilla heard the news, she immediately sent out a staff member to buy pink wool. The Queen and The Prince of Wales are said to be delighted. ‘Britain has a great history of Queens regnant and the arrival of a girl is a historic event given the changes to the succession rules.’

A spokesperson would not confirm whether Diana would be amongst the baby’s names.

“They will reveal her names in due course.”



William and Kate visit Child Bereavement UK

On March 19th William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, visited Child Bereavement UK headquarters near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. The Child Bereavement UK charity was launched by Diana, Princess of Wales in 1994.

During a 2009 visit to launch the charity’s Mother’s Day campaign, Prince William, who has been patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009, famously made a rare public comment about losing his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

‘Never being able to say the word “Mummy” again in your life sounds like a small thing. However, for many, including me, it’s now really just a word – hollow and evoking only memories.’

In October 2011, he raised more than £600,000 for the organisation at a fundraiser held in St James’s Palace.

The mandate of Child Bereavement UK is:

We support families and educate professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement

During this visit William and Kate visited with staff as well as families who have lost a child.  Something which must be particularly poignant as the couple are expecting their first child in July.
