Snort. Who knew Her Majesty had such a great sense of humor? When a group of schoolchildren asked her about the royal baby, Queen Elizabeth indicated she hopes Kate Middleton gives birth soon -- basically because she's got a deadline she wants to adhere to.
Her exact words were, "I would very much like it to arrive soon. I'm going on holiday."
OMG. The Queen is worried the royal baby is going to screw up her vacation plans if he or she doesn't show up before she leaves for Balmoral at the end of next week.
In other words, the baby is crampin' her style by taking so long to get here.
Are you loving this or what?
Ok, ok, so I'm sure she didn't mean to come off as annoyed, but her choice of words does make it sound like the thought of Kate Middleton's labor and delivery forcing her to alter her holiday plans has crossed her mind.
And based on the possibility that Kate has been lying about her due date and may not give birth until the end of the month, there's definitely a chance that Queen Elizabeth may not be heading off to Balmoral on the 19th.
I just can't imagine that she'd take off like that if her great-grandchild still isn't here, can you? Royalty or not, grandmas live for this sort of thing. Since this is her first great-grandchild, I'm sure she'd much rather be in London for the birth than off relaxing and sipping tea at her Balmoral estate.
But I guess we really can't blame her for being a bit anxious. Heck, we're not even part of the royal family and we're all going crazy over when this kid is going to be born, so we can only imagine how excited she must be.
(Come onnnnn, Kate -- let's get this show on the road!)
Do you think the baby will come before the 19th?
