As the world eagerly awaits the arrival of the royal baby, we’re taking a peek inside the Lindo Wing, where Kate Middleton is scheduled to welcome her third child later this month.
The Duchess of Cambridge delivered her first two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, at the uber-luxe, private facility that’s part of St. Mary’s Hospital in London and, as parking restrictions have been set up outside the facility already, she will welcome her next baby there, as well.
The Lindo Wing offers “world-class” service for its patients, which includes chef-made meals, chic furnishings and artwork, satellite TV and even a champagne toast after babies are born.
“Our world-class maternity care, combined with a personalized service, will relax and reassure you throughout one of the most emotional and exciting experiences of your life,” the brochure reportedly reads. “Direction is key to our service, and we will ensure that you have the space, security and privacy you need to enjoy these precious early moments as a family.”
The Mirror reports that every delivery room has an ensuite, television, radio, phone, wifi and fridge, along with “modern” decor.
As for the chef-made meals? The Lindo Wing offers an “extensive nutritious menu,” with a catering staff that will gladly prepare food for any dietary restrictions and preferences.
Kate isn’t the only beloved royal to opt to deliver her children at the Lindo Wing. Princess Diana also welcomed both Prince William and Prince Harry in the private facility, making William the first heir to the British throne ever to be born in a hospital.
Of course all of the amenities offered by the luxurious hospital facility don’t come cheap. A standard room at the Lindo Center costs £5,900, plus £1,175 for each additional night that a couple wishes to stay there. See photos of the Lindo Wing here.
