The Duchess traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”

Kate Middleton is now safely planted in the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, the exact same place where Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William over thirty years ago. Her husband Prince William is by her side.
