Of course she is!

Please excuse my sarcasm here. I knew it was only a question of time, and of course, here it is. I wish them all the very best.

It hurts. It just hurts.

October baby for Princess Mary

From:

Royal baby ... the child will be second in line to the throne after Prince Frederik / AP CROWN Princess Mary was pregnant with the child that will be second in line to the Danish throne when she and Crown Prince Frederik made their first tour of Australia as a married couple.

The royals spent more than three weeks in Australia in February and March - very soon after Princess Mary would have conceived.
The Danish royal court announced the pregnancy overnight, saying the baby would be due in late October, meaning she would have fallen pregnant in late January.

"The Crown Princess is expecting to give birth to a child by the end of October this year," the royal court said in a statement."

The day before Princess Mary left Australia to return to Denmark, the couple was spotted buying a pair of baby booties from a Hobart shop.

At the time, Princess Mary said Australia would play a large part in the lives of her future children, but made no mention of pregnancy.

However, she did tell television personality Andrew Denton before the royal tour it was "no secret" they wanted to start a family.

A brief statement released by the Danish palace said the princess planned to have her baby delivered at Copenhagen's university hospital.

The child will be second in line of succession to the throne after Prince Frederik, Queen Margrethe's eldest son.

The princess, formerly Mary Donaldson, grew up in Hobart's waterfront suburb of Taroona and was working for a real estate agency in Sydney when she met her prince.

The pair were introduced by Spain's Crown Prince Felipe at the Slip Inn bar at Darling Harbour during the 2000 Olympic Games.

Prince Frederik, a former Olympic yachtsman, had been in Sydney to support the Danish sailing team.

Mary moved to London in January 2002 to be closer to Prince Frederik, but soon moved into the Copenhagen apartment of the future king.

The pair announced their engagement in September 2003 and married in a fairytale $35-million wedding in Copenhagen last May.

Interviewed in late February by the ABC's Andrew Denton, Princess Mary - who was then about four weeks' pregnant - said she felt no pressure to have a child.

"It's definitely not a sense of obligation because it's something that we very much want to do," the princess said at the time.

"We do want to start a family and there's no secret with that."

But she joked at media speculation that she was already expecting.

"We were in hospital to ... have a check-up, and the next day it came out in the press that I was pregnant," she said on Denton's Enough Rope program.

"They'd seen me and it was definite for sure that I was pregnant, I must be eight weeks' pregnant and therefore giving birth in such and such a time."

During the couple's Australian tour, Princess Mary told reporters her children would be brought up with an appreciation of Australia.

"I think it's only natural that our children will have some Australian influence because a lot of me is influenced by my upbringing in Australia," she said during her only Australian press conference.

"I'm sure they will have desire to come and see where I have grown up as well."

Before flying home to Denmark, the pair were sighted buying a pair of baby's booties from a Hobart shop.

A spokesman for the store said Princess Mary had bought a large pair of booties, indicating they were for a one-year-old.
