There had been a great deal of rumours about where the Duchess of Sussex would be giving birth, especially considering she and her husband Prince Harry are soon to be moving homes to Windsor.
Recent talk has revolved around Meghan having her baby at the Mulberry Birth Centre at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey, close by to Frogmore Cottage, her new home. Known for doing things differently, it would come as no surprise to learn Meghan was considering going somewhere different to her sister-in-law Kate.
However, new news has emerged that has suggested The Duchess may well go down the traditional route and give birth at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, where all three of The Duchess of Cambridge’s children have been born, as well as Pippa Middleton’s child.
The Telegraph has been told by a source that staff at the hospital have been explicitly instructed not to take off any time in April, the month Meghan is expected to give birth.
‘Staff at the Lindo Wing have been asked not to take holiday in April,’ the source explained.
‘Everyone thinks it’s got something to do with the royal baby but no one is confirming anything.’
While this does not confirm anything, it could hint that the Lindo Wing is the chosen destination for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex -and it certainly wouldn’t be a bad choice. The Lindo Wing, which costs an eye watering £6000 a night, provides expectant mothers with luxurious en-suite private rooms, a la carte menus and a post birth afternoon tea with Champagne.
Meghan only recently revealed her baby was due in April, having let the information slip to a member of the public while in a walkabout in Birkenhead. Only time will tell exactly when and where the new royal baby will enter the world.
