Kate to have champagne in birth suite


Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's plush delivery suite will contain champagne, luxury toiletries and a reclining chair.

Kate is due to give birth to her first child tomorrow, and she’ll welcome the baby into the world at the Lindo Wing which is attached to St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London.

The suite costs £6 265 (R93 975) for a one-night stay and £2 200 (R33 000) for each extra night. Based on a three-night stay the bill will be more than £10 000 (R150 000).

Gynaecologists, paediatricians, midwives, nurses, breastfeeding consultants and nursery nurses will all be at hand. And if anything goes wrong Kate can be rushed next door to St Mary's Hospital.

The suite boasts satellite TV, Wi-Fi, radio and a safe, and a fresh bouquet of flowers will be delivered every day. It is also fitted with blackout curtains to guarantee total privacy.

When the baby is born, top chefs will be on hand to prepare a meal for Kate and William.

Princess Diana gave birth to both Prince William in 1982 and his brother, Prince Harry, in 1984 at the Lindo Wing.

The newborn will spend the first six weeks of his or her life with Kate at her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton's, £4,85 (R72,75 million) million Georgian manor in Berkshire, southeast England.

The duchess ? whose sister is Pippa Middleton ? has previously said she’d feel "safest and most secure" at her parents' abode.
