Royals do baby birthing right!
With the Royal Baby due at any moment now, Prince William and Kate Middleton have made sure they are prepared for anything – this includes emergency helicopter rides, $15,000 birthing suites, pre-delivery yoga, and more!
Let’s take a look at how the Royals do it better:
In case the baby arrives while William is working with the Royal Air Force, he has a private helicopter stationed near his home on Anglesey in Wales that will take him directly to St. Mary’s Hospital to be at his wife’s side.
Duchess Kate has insisted on the idea of a natural birth. In order to prepare, she has been taking private pregnancy yoga sessions to help her remain physically and mentally strong, which will help her during labor.
Kate will be delivering the baby in a luxury birthing suite at The Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London. The Lindo Wing is virtually a 5-star hotel equipped with midwives, nurses, duvets, a sofa, chairs, and endless amounts of food and beverages. The Duchess of Cambridge will even have a personal chef on standby in case she has any cravings!
Now, how much does this all cost?
One night in The Lindo Wing costs $9,450, plus $3,318 for each extra night they stay. William and Kate have planned to stay for three nights, which brings their hospital bill to over $15,000!
These preparations though lavish and over the top, are perfectly fit for Royalty.
Now it is time to sit back and wait for the news that the Royal Baby has arrived! In the meantime, let's speculate about what names William and Kate might pick for their "little grape."
