Royal Baby? On July the 22nd. A girl of course.

The lunar phase depends on the Moon's position...
The lunar phase depends on the Moon’s position in orbit around the Earth and the Earth’s position in orbit around the sun. This diagram (not to scale) looks down on Earth from north. Both Earth and the Moon’s orbit are rotating counter-clockwise. Sunlight (yellow arrows) is coming in from the right. One can see, for example, that the full moon will always rise at sunset and that the waning crescent moon is high overhead around 9:00 am local time. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

by pio dal cin. Codognè. How can I be so sure that Her Majesty the Princess of Cambridge will be born on the 22nd of July? Well I am not sure of course, but if you care to look at This Lunar Phase prospect you may see that the full moon is “due” for such a date.

Here in VenetoItaly, we have a couple of saying regarding first born babies.

One. “Mamma Bela l’è na Putela” that means “If mom looks more than pretty, it’s a Girl”. Kate looks beautiful so, It’s a GIRL!!!

Two. For the first baby to be born you have to wait for the full moon.

Let’s see if my prediction is right.

Royal Baby Keeps the World’s Media waiting

Shall we call it the “Royal Baby Fever”?  The media around the world are jusy waiting for the heir to the throne, (girl or boy will just not matter ) as suggested here by
this article by CBS news, the son or daughter ofWilliam and Kate will be a monarch.

The only thing we are sure of so far is that he/she will be the prince/ princess of Cambridge, that the very first person to know about the Royal Birth will be Her Majesty the Queen of England, via private phone call by William on a safe tepephone line.

There will be no Twitter or Facebook announcement as the photo and the name of the newborn will be posted in a canvas as it was done for William.

What this Baby has done for sure is to have the World’s media talking about his/her birth as suggested here in
This other article by the Telegraph.  In America as in Italy in Africa as in Australia everyone seems to be awaiting impatiently for the “most wanted baby”.

An interesting question was raised by +NPR  dueby NPR about the Surname in this article. What would the baby surname will be? It appears that a Monarch needs no such a small detail. We now use the name Queen Elizabeth for example, no surname needed here as a sign of respect for her fame?

Now If I were William I’d be nervous and worrying about my spouse due at any minute. Do you think that William worries that much?
If you care enough to read
in this article by the Mirror  you’ll find out that the son of Diana and Charles is playing Polo as usual.

How long shall we be waiting for the Royal birth?

Usually on the first time that a woman gives birth there could be a two weeks anticipation or posticipation. So, if the baby wasn’t born before the 11th of July as expexted, or before, the max we should be waiting for will be July 24th.

Good luck to all photographers and media people that are assembled outside the Saint Mary’s Hospital, waiting for the Royal Couple to show the infant.
