The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth any day now at the Lindo Wing, at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, and now a previous mum who has given birth there has revealed Kate is in safe hands.
“Kate will be well looked after,” Dawn Robertson, 58, who had her three children at the hospital said. “They were really accommodating and always asking if you were okay and comfortable,” she revealed to People.
The mum-to-be is expected to give birth in the London hospital, and Palace officials have insisted this is still William and Kate’s first choice. In recent days, the parents-to-be have been residing at Kate’s parents’ house in Bucklebury, Berkshire, leading to speculation the pregnant Duchess would give birth at a nearer hospital.
However, Palace officials have been quick to stress the royal couple still plan to welcome their first child at the Lindo Wing, while a hospital nearer the Middleton’s family home would only be used in an emergency.
Last month, it was confirmed Prince William and wife Kate would be following in the footsteps of William’s parents with choosing the Lindo Wing to welcome baby Cambridge.
Diana, Princess of Wales, gave birth to both Prince William and Prince Harry at the hospital, and the Lindo Wing has been a popular choice for members of the Royal Family with the Princess Royal welcoming Peter and Zara Phillips there.
The world’s media has been camped outside the Paddington hospital since the beginning of the month as they wait for Kate’s mid-July due date.
