      1. I am not sure Charlotte has brown eyes. It is even too early to determine the color at this stage! Other predictions you made seemed quite safe.

        1. We could defiantly tell Princess Charlotte's hair color from the Christening Photos, so I marked that as correct.
          I definitely agree that we can't be sure yet what color eyes she has. I didn't MEAN to mark it as correct. Eye colors can often change for babies over time, so I wanted to wait on that. (Probably a few more months, or until one of the Royals confirms the Eye Color) Just like how I waited to mark the “No 2nd Nanny” till the christening, so we could be sure and give it time.
          You called some of these predictions “SAFE”, which I find quite funny. I’ve had a number of disagreements with people over the various points. Which is in part why I created the page.
          I created most of this in February (2.5 months before Charlotte’s Birth, I have added stuff since). AT THE TIME a lot of “Safe, Obvious Stuff” was very much uncertain. There were a lot of different ideas floating about and a lot of disagreements.
          There was even uncertainly about whether Catherine would deliver at Lindo, or if William would make it to the Hospital in time.

      2. There is a new nanny, they just keep her hidden from us. She was advertised for in The Lady.

        1. Advertisement in The Lady you are referring to was for a New Housekeeper for Anmer Hall, to replace the one who had left. The New Housekeeper's name is Sadie Rice and she previously worked for Norway's Crown Prince Haakon.

      3. Why do you think the 3rd baby will be a boy? I say girl.

        1. I don't have any intelligent reason why I think boy over girl.
