Truthfully I think Snakey's true love is the media, CP is just a puppet on a string, so as soon as the media takes notice of the nanny , that is when the Snake will feel rattled.

poor nanny - I gues she isn't doing the job for the money as royals are known for being closefisted...but it is good for her CV  because most of the people are still impressed by royals 

I would be impressed by such a CV too. Working for this couple without going mad says a lot about resilience.  Wink

I would say the nannies are in more danger to attract the attention of our dear king who already has proven himself and his bad taste...

How does that work?  Do they know the due date and then plan it accordingly?

The invitations don't need a date because the Te Deum for a Swedish royal birth always occurs at 12.15 the day after the birth.  If the birth occurs on a Saturday, the Te Deum occurs on the following Monday.

AFAIK these invitations are sent when it could happen anytime and the guests should be ready. And not go on holiday at the other side of the earth.  Tongue

Exactly, Ginger.  This type of invitation asks for much flexibility from the guests.  You could be on stand-by for weeks if the baby was overdue!

So people have to kind of put plans on hold if they want to go to this?   Roll Eyes  How annoying.

G, yes it is a long wait!  But the mother who has just given birth and the newborn are the only ones who don't attend the Te Deum so in that respect, it's only in their 'honour' not in their actual presence.

I can't imagine sending out invitations before the actual birth. I get that it has to be done as people need to know they are invited and where it is etc but it just seems odd to me to make it so public before the actual birth.

That's a very ancient royal custom.  It reminds me of the story about Elizabeth I's birth: the birth announcements had already been prepared to be sent out to all the European monarchs, announcing the birth of a "prince" since Henry VIII was so confident Anne Boleyn would have a boy--and then when the baby turned out to be a girl, an 's' had to be hastily tacked on to the word 'prince' (close enough to 'princess' to be acceptable).  Even now when you look at the surviving birth announcements, that quickly scribbled, crammed-in "s" is very obvious.
