Excitement is mounting in the Grumble household, as news drips through about our yet-to-be-born future monarch.
From London, we learn (here) that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby is due in July.
And from Christchurch (here), we learn that Britain’s Foreign Secretary is not privy to information about whether a future king or a future queen will pop out, when the gestation period has expired.
The Foreign Secretary, of course, is a bloke named Hague, and the headline writers have delighted in saying Hague is vague about the gender of the royal sprog.
But it’s fair to say the Daily Mail is a tad vague, too, about Kate’s condition. It says the Duchess of Cambridge, 31, is believed to be 13 to 14 weeks pregnant, and the confirmation of the birth month means it’s likely she’s had a 12-week scan.
More certainly, it reports there are no twins, tucked inside the royal womb.
