In a few short weeks, the Duchess of Cambridge will deliver the royal heir naturally at the private Lindo wing at St Mary's Hospital in Central London, the same place where both Princes William and Harry were born.
The royals made the announcement Wednesday, adding that they do not know the sex of their baby yet.
The Lindo has also been the place where Peter and Zara Phillips were both born, while Princess Michael of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester also gave birth there.
The fully refurbished wing is described as providing "leading private obstetric and neonatal care for 60 years." It also reportedly cost 4,965 pounds per night to stay in the elite wing, reports the Huffington Post.
Each room comes equipped with satellite TV with major international channels, a radio, a safe, a bedside phone and a fridge. All meals are freshly prepared in a dedicated kitchen and tea and coffee is provided for mothers and guests all day. Plus, the wing offers a "comprehensive wine list should you wish to enjoy a glass of champagne and toast your baby's arrival."
After the baby is born, Prince William will take two weeks of paternity leave from the Ministry of Defense before returning to his shift work duties as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot, reports The Sun.
The baby, which is due on July 11, will be delivered by the former royal gynaecologist, Marcus Setchell, with the assistance of the Queen's current gynaecologist, Alan Farthing.
