Kate Middleton Reveals Why She Wants A Home Birth This Time Round

Kate Middleton Reveals Why She Wants A Home Birth This Time Round

Kate Middleton has reported she wants to give birth at home this time rather than a birthing suite in hospital.

The duchess, who is set to give birth to her third child with husband Prince William in April says she wants to avoid the chaos of having a hospital delivery.

According to British paper The Mirror, the royal couple want to have a home birth either at Kensington Palace or the Sandringham Estate.

A source close to the couple has revealed the couple’s reasoning behind the decision.

“Above all they have agreed that having a home birth would save a massive intrusion into the day-to-day running of any hospital where she gave birth.

“They were very concerned about the chaos caused with the first two children as hundreds of press and public camped outside for several days, and they would like to avoid a repeat if they could,” the source said.

The duchess voiced her concern for the other patients at the hospital saying it was unfair to put them in the middle of the chaos a royal birth would present.

Kate gave birth to both Prince George and Princess Charlotte at St Mary’s Hospital in 2013 and 2015, in Paddington which is the same hospital where princes William and Harry were born in the early 1980s.

This royal baby won’t be the first to be born at home. Queen Elizabeth was born at her parents’ home in London, and her sons (Princes Charles, Andrew and Edward) were born at Buckingham Palace, while Princess Anne was born at royal residence Clarence House in London.
