1. She's hella old.

She'd be up in a few hours anyway. My gramma was always up by4:30- 5:00 in the morning.

2. Her Majesty is no spring chicken, you know.

Her sleep is not to be disturbed. Now, let me show you out. Audiences begin at 10 AM.

3. She's an old woman

the baby will still be there in the morning. I'm sure the Grandparents would have been awakened.

9. Seems fair enough. Would you wake up your grandmother in the middle of the night

to tell her the moment your baby was born? Nothing wrong with a good night's sleep.

11. The 'you' in my sentence was for the parent

"Would you wake up your grandmother in the middle of the night to tell her the moment your baby was born?"

Because in a normal family, its the new parents who are there (obviously in the mother's case...), and who decide who to start calling. The queen was already a great grandmother - Peter Phillips (son of Princess Anne) has 2 children, Savannah (born 2010), and Isla (born 2012).

I'm sure they didn't wake Charles up, because it's the middle of the day. He might had said "do wake me whatever time it is" - who knows. He is a grandfather for the first time. And there's Kate's parents too - their first, as far as I can tell.

12. i became a grandmother when i was 38. i was with my

DIL and son till 1 am when the hospital said it would be a while. i went home and got some sleep and the phone rang around 5 am to tell me i had a granddaughter. i was so excited. back in '79 we didn't know the sex until the birth. i was tired and took the day off of work -- got a few more hours sleep and was back at the hospital.

13. Are you a great grandmother by now?

That's the situation the queen's in - for the 3rd time. The relationship between 38 year old mother and son/DIL will be also different from 87 year old grandmother and grandson/GDIL.
