Since the 1970s, several members of the royal family have given birth at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in London.
The Duke of Cambridge and Kate Middleton have welcomed all three of their children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – into the world at the prestigious location.
For each new arrival, Middleton chose a different Jenny Packham dress – the first was a pale blue polka dot shift dress, followed by white floral number and a red dress that many speculated was an ode to her late mother-in-law.
However, one of the most memorable moments of the Lindo Wing births came from an unlikely source. Following the birth of Prince Louis in 2018, the newborn’s siblings came to visit their mother and, at just two-years-old, Princess Charlotte proved she had already mastered a key element of her regal role – the royal wave – by confidently gesturing to the crowd.
However, not all royal family members have delivered their babies at the Lindo Wing, with Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew choosing to welcome both their daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, into the world at the Portland Hospital.
