Yeah, her title was "Diana, Princess of Wales", not "Princess Diana".

Re: Princess Kate (aka the Duchess of Cambridge) is Pregnant!

looks like her condition is more serious than just morning sickness. Hope she is being made comfortable.

wonder how this will affect further children. They wanted a big family

Correct, the latter is specifically reserved for Wonder Woman.

I've heard that the condition she has is often indicative of twins or a girl. Who knows how true that is, but either way I hope everything turns out alright. I guess this form of sickness is pretty uncomfortable and can really dehydrate you, as you can't keep any food or even water down.

Correct or not, it's not what the public called her and it's not what the media called her - even the mighty BBC.

Indeed. They seem to genuinely care for one another. Plus, I can't help liking them.

I'd say so, especially since the examples above are far from universal. Many women take their husbands' last name, but many don't. (For example, as a rule women don't that here in Italy.)

It's more than "pretty uncomfortable." Hyperemesis gravidarum can lead to dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and if not controlled, GI bleeding, malnutrition, & in severe cases neurological damage.

^My sister had it with her fist child. She lost something like 15 pounds in the 2nd month of her pregnancy.

Re: Princess Kate (aka the Duchess of Cambridge) is Pregnant!

I learned something today:

Last year, the Commonwealth to a step toward monarchal equality and declared that woman have the same rights as men when it comes to ascension...so first borns get the crown, regardless of their parts. This is called "Absolute primogeniture" and will apparently be formally introduced at a future date...probably within 9 month.

And Kate just loves the limelight. She enjoys the royal life much more than Diana ever did. She's just having a blast with the whole thing.

Also: Pippa is hot. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
