On call 24/7
Her baby is due for arrival any day now, and Kate Middleton’s birth plan is in place. Palace staff are “on call every day and night in July”, a palace insider reveals to Us Weekly. “There is nothing left to plan or prepare for.”
Kate Middleton’s Birth Plan
So what happens when the Duchess of Cambridge experiences her first contraction? Her private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerthon, will be alerted and contact Middleton’s doctor, Marcus Setchel, who’s already been issued a private mobile phone with an encrypted signal by the palace. A flashing green emergency beacon will be placed on the roof of his BMW 6 Series before he makes the 11.3 km, 26-minute drive from his home in Muswell Hill, North London, to St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

As the world eagerly awaits the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby, over 180 photographers, reporters and journalists have been camping outside the hospital through the night since July 8.
A £1000 suite, sterilised and sealed
Upon her arrival, the Duchess will be ushered through one of three side entrances into a suite on the forth floor of the Lindo Wing. This £1000-a-night (SGD$1906) room with WiFi and satellite TV was sterilised and sealed on July 1, and is being closely monitored by security cameras and personnel.
Royal Baby Details
Once Middleton is safely inside, a palace statement will be released, alerting the media and public to her impending birth. The Duchess and Prince William intend to have their little one delivered naturally. Details on the royal newborn’s birth weight and gender will then be revealed on a framed notice just inside the gates of Buckingham Palace.
The future monarch was due for July 11, which explains the royal family’s anxious anticipation of the baby’s arrival.
Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, revealed the royal family is “waiting by the telephone,” as the Daily Mail reported. “We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here.”
