…or we’re pretty certain we do! Of course, babies are never predictable, and while there is a possibility that William and Catherine’s first born, 3rd in line to the throne, will make it’s imminent appearance in the back of an ambulance racing around Great Britain’s capital city, it is far more likely that the Prince or Princess of Cambridge will take it’s first new-born cry in St Mary’s Hospital.
Here at a Royal Baby Blog we speculated early in Catherine’s pregnancy about where the royal baby would be born, looking at historical royal births for contrast, and it has since been confirmed by Buckingham Palace that the Duke and Duchess’s baby will be delivered in the Lindo Wing (the private wing) of St Mary’s NHS (National Health Service) Hospital in Paddington, West London.
William himself was born here on the 21st of June 1982, and I can still remember watching the pictures on the television news of his mother, Princess Diana, standing on the steps of the hospital with William in her arms (an interest in royal babies even then!) Television crews and photographers from all over the world are already camped outside St Mary’s Hospital waiting for news.
