Re: New heir to the throne on the way

...Booo....this isn't news, this is crap....

The announcement that our future King and his wife will be giving birth to who will be the King or Queen after him is news, regardless of what your own personal feelings toward the Canadian Monarchy may be.

And Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is 90 years old. If she's anything like her mother, she'll be around for another ten years or so, not 50.

Her Majesty is 86 (born in 1926), but both she and the Duke of Edinburgh are in remarkably good heath considering their age (he is 91) and still very active. I can but hope to be as well as they are when/if I make it to their respective ages.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN, and all the Royal Family.

I'm sure if you received Royal healthcare all your life you'd live long too!

But that said, my grandma will be 91 herself this January, and she's still doing fairly well.

I was guessing, as I know she's roughly the same age as my Grandfather (who was born in October 1922) and both served Britain during WW2.

My grandparents made it to 84, 86, 92, 102 and several great aunts and great uncles made it well into their 90s, so I've certainly got a chance to make it that far with Canadian health care (and it has improved living times since grandparents were alive).

I wonder if the Duchess will move from her husband's station Wales to their apartment at Kensington Palace during her pregnancy so that she's close to the hospital she's now in.

Probably depends on how serious it is, how quickly they get it under control, and if she needs a PICC line..

Yeah, those are some impressive years for all your grandparents.

If we take an average of those, you should make it to 91 at least!
