Prince William to be at royal birth?


Britain's Prince William will reportedly be at the birth of his child.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to welcome their first-born into the world in July and speculation suggests the duke could break with tradition and be at Kate’s bedside when she goes into labour.

Royal correspondent Robert Jobsen told Now magazine, "I'm sure he'll [Prince William] will be there [at the birth]. It's become more common recently with the royal family ? [Princess Anne’s son] Peter Phillips, for instance, was at the birth of his daughters, Savannah and Isla."

Kate was said to have originally wanted to have the baby at the Royal Berkshire NHS Hospital in Reading, where she and her sister, Pippa Middleton, were born but she looks more likely to follow royal tradition and have the little one in London.

Jobsen explained, "The location hasn't officially been revealed yet but it looks likely she'll follow tradition and give birth in a private wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, where William and Prince Harry were both born."
