Are you having a street party to congratulate the Royal couple?

I saw a newspaper article that described the news as introducing a shaft of light as the year's golden glow was fading.

I'm sure that - like me - you're all too excited to think straight at the moment.

The full 9 month term for a ban will be needed on this one, there won't be a day now without the papers finding two or three pages to pad the rags out!

I was wondering why she is in hospital for this complaint? I thought maybe she had caught this vomiting bug which is supposed to be prevalent at the moment. It seems it is highly contagious and we are advised not to go to hospital so it can't be that, can it? So it must be normal "morning sickness" which no doubt everybody's wife has been through. I've never heard of anyone going to hospital with it though. No doubt some of the ladies on the forum will tell me otherwise. Looking at her, there seems nothing wrong that a good bowl of Scouse wouldn't cure.

I must add that it does seem a good reason/excuse for a street party. Can we come to yours FE? I'll bring a bottle of Pussers.

Bing.alau - It's not normal morning sickness but what she has can be serious.

Back to the thread - there's far too much hype about this.

Kate is suffering from Hyperemesis gravidarum, which is a rare and potentially dangerous form of the 'morning sickness' that women often experience in the early months of a pregnancy.

The dangers are dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, and weight loss - sufferers commonly lose 10% of their body weight. A trip to hospital is a normal procedure - the condition can be very dangerous if not treated promptly.

Kate must be feeling dreadful, and my cynicism wasn't directed at her - she seems to be a nice enough person, and your first child is always a big thrill. I just can't bear the way the media go into hyper-drive within hours of these announcements.

Oh god, that means that reporters are all going to be roaming round the village again trying to find 'real country yokels' to say how wonderful it is that their betters have done their duty and secured the succession. No doubt they'd also like a photo of us tugging our forelocks, as well....sigh, it's going to be the wedding all over again. Still the new landlord at The Bladebone will be happy
