Kate Middleton usually leaves the hospital almost immediately—Security concerns is a big issue — the sheer frenzy her presence causes at the hospital. Fans camp out for weeks outside and parking restrictions are put in place. Kate, of course, is not the only mother giving birth at the Lindo Wing, and the activity and noise would be overwhelming for anyone.
Meet the Medical team:
The Duchess is being cared for by consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who is the surgeon-gynaecologist to the household, and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing, the Queen’s surgeon-gynaecologist – part of the trusted team who delivered George and Charlotte.
Highly-trained midwives were also on hand, while experts were waiting in the wings in case of an emergency.
For her previous births, Kate had a 23-strong team of top medics working or on stand-by from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust – which runs St Mary’s Hospital.
Theatre staff were ready, along with a lab technician, replacement anaesthetists and paediatricians, a back-up for the consultant, and workers from a special baby care unit.
Some old school announcements:
A golden easel bearing a framed notice announcing the birth was placed on display in front of Buckingham Palace on Monday afternoon. The bulletin will be on display for approximately 24 hours.The practice of posting a bulletin on the occasion of a royal birth goes back to at least 1837, when Buckingham Palace became the British monarch’s official residence.
Tony Appleton, the Royal town crier also made his own announcements.
Standing outside the Lindo Wing hospital he rang his bell and shouted: ‘Buckingham Palace proudly announces the birth of a newly born prince on this St George’s day AD 2018. God Save the Queen
Big brother and sister tagged along with daddy to visit:
Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, came to see mummy in the hospital. Of course in the full glare of the public, flashlights and camera.
