Baby needs to hurry up so I can go on holiday, quips Queen

Baby needs to hurry up so I can go on holiday, quips Queen
18 Jul 2013

The Queen has joked that she hopes the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to her first child sooner rather than later as she has booked a holiday

When asked by Wiggonby Church of England Primary School pupil Fay Batey whether she wanted a great grandson or daughter, Her Majesty replied: 'I don't think I mind. I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday.'

Kate Middleton is already several days overdue so the Queen should be able to holiday as planned. She is 8/15 with the bookmaker William Hill to have a girl and 11/8 to give birth to a son. Alexandra and George are the favourites among the possible names.

Every year, the Queen heads for Balmoral Castle on the Balmoral Estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to enjoy her summer vacation in August. The destination was also a favourite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Tourists can visit the estate grounds, gardens and the Castle Ballroom between April and July each year.ADNFCR-408-ID-801613909-ADNFCR
