Sooner or Later - A Royal Bet

Don't you just hate it when people speculate if other people are expecting? It's sooo no one's businsess.

I get a tad miffed when someone who isn't among my hierachary of besties inquires about the ambitions of my womb. It's a decision that is emotional, private, personal. People shouldn't go nosing around about it.

Which is why, of course, I'm naturally inclined to wonder when Catherine will become a mummy.

I think it won't be long. She's pushing 30, plus that's just what the royals do - they produce heirs. I say before next May there's an announcement. Maybe not a baby...but a royal bump watch.

My friend Jenni says not a chance - not with the Olympics in London, not with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

So we have a bet. Seeing as how the next generation of royals is not at all our business, not at all important in the grand scheme of our lives or more generally, the world, we've made a little wager....just to make the anticipation of the inevitable all the more fun.  

There's a bottle of Veuve Clicquot on the line. Loser uncorks for the winner.

If you dare think about trival matters like this (for the record, Vegas already has odds on it) would you bet sooner...or later?

I think it will be sooner than later. Hope so anyway!

I was just thinking of this the other day.

I have some strong opinions on it, too. I don't know why I was thinking of this, but I guess I put myself in her shoes.

I think she will have announce a baby in the Fall of 2012 and close to the 31st birthday that January or be pregnant as William nears getting out of service, and they are back in London full-time.

I think it would be easier on her to be back in town, close to her mom, and him "not away" to have a child because knowing them, I have a feeling that she would be very hands on, and not have a full-time nanny.

I think having a child and being a military wife would be hard, but then again, they aren't "normal people".

But on the flip side, it may be the perfect place to have a child and be less out of the public eye. Do you know how much longer he has in Wales?

The ironic thing is that no one really knows. It always could "take" longer than one would think.

I'm saying no to this year on an announcement, but possible late 2012 or early 2013.

I know we all can't wait. :) I agree. What is it with people wanting to know when one will reproduce? Or worse part, when someone comes up and asks you if you are already pregnant, but it's just the fatty food you ate the day before that's making you look fat and preggers. :)
