It seems the preparations for the birth of Kate Middleton’s royal baby has everyone busy; from the staff at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London to Kate Middleton’s obstetrician Marcus Setchell who will be alerted on his specially-encrypted mobile phone by the Royal couple’s private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton. In case of heavy traffic, he can always put the green flashing light he is entitled to use as a doctor on call on the roof of his car.
Kate’s keeping herself busy supervising renovations to Princess Margaret’s old apartment, which will become the couple’s permanent base near the end of the year. Seems she’s also been busy getting herself a Royal Mothers’ Group! We figure she won’t be able to join the local Mothers’ Group so is getting those who’d be accepted by the Palace to join her with first bubs.
Zara Phillips the Princess Royal has just announced that she is having a baby. A statement from Buckingham Palace read:
“Mr. and Mrs. Mike Tindall are very pleased to announced that Zara Tindall is expecting a baby in the New Year.”
The statement continued:
“The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips, Mr. Phillip and Mrs. Linda Tindall, and members of both families are delighted with the news. This baby will be the first child for Mike and Zara and the third grandchild for The Princess Royal.”
A royal insider said that the Queen was ‘absolutely delighted’ by the news. This will be her fourth great-grandchild.
The mother-to-be, who won a silver medal at the London Olympics, has shown no signs of slowing down, competing in two horse riding events over the weekend.
So who thinks their Mothers’ Group will be just like ours? Meeting at the Community Center for a chat with the Early Childhood Centre Nurse and then coffee with friends at a nearby coffee shop? We think not!
What do you think about all the buzz about royal bubs?
