After a jubilant Royal Wedding last year, Britain is eagerly anticipating more good news from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. When the announcement is finally made, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth will be consumed by royal baby fever.

In this documentary, royal experts, insiders and historians look back at the childhoods of Queen Elizabeth II, her children and grandchildren, offer their views on who William and Kate will look to for guidance and reveal just what it takes to raise a monarch. William and Kate have sought to define themselves as modern royals, but how will they balance ancient tradition with contemporary expectations, private life with public demands, family values with national duty?

We also talk to nannies, fashion experts and commentators on the big questions that all young parents face, and those that only royal parents must solve. Who will look after baby on those long business trips away from home? What will glamorous Kate wear on her bump? Will she buy designer romper suits or stick to her favourite high-street brands?

This unborn child is already perhaps the world's most famous and influential. Whether boy or girl, it will be born to rule. The removal of sexist succession laws now gives sons and daughters equal hereditary rights and has paved the way for a truly modern monarch.

    All just speculation and innane waffle by those who are earning a living on the back of the Royal Couple. Let them have time to enjoy being together. Agree with Margaret48.

    The difference between Catherine and Diana is that Catherine has a husband who loves her and does not look on her as purely a baby machine as Diana`s did, and that was the only reason he married her!!!!

    Fortunately we have a very sensible outgoing couple who know their own mind and are not prone to public hysteria! When and only when the time is right they will decide to start a family. I do not believe they will have any problems juggling public/ private lives. As William knows the public/press can almost suffocate a relationship by nosey intrusions. They are both level headed and I believe Kate has a steely determination to not allow the same pressures as Diana endured duruing her oh so public lifetime...Good luck and every happiness to the two of them.
