As In Touch reported, the baby will be arriving in style. The Lindo Wing is virtually a 5-star hotel equipped with midwives, nurses, duvets, a sofa, chairs, and endless amounts of food and beverages. And Kate even has a chef on standby to nurse any of her cravings! The Lindo Wing costs $9,450, plus $3,318 for each extra night they stay. Since the couple plan to stay for three nights, that brings their bill to over $15,000!

William and Kate, who's nine days past her due date, confirmed her pregnancy in December. This is the first child for the couple.
