And the question on everyone’s lips is…..
…..Where would Baby Sussex be born?
In the past, the tradition was for royal babies to be born either in the palace or a private household, instead of a hospital.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II gave birth to:
Prince Charles, 1948 at Buckingham Palace:
Princess Anne, 1950 at Clarence House
Prince Andrew, 1960 at Buckingham Palace
Prince Edward, 1964 at Buckingham Palace
All that changed when Anne Princess Royal gave birth to:
Peter Phillips 1977, at St Mary’s Hospital, London
Zara Phillips, 1981 at St Mary’s Hospital, London
Princess Diana followed suit, giving birth to:
Prince William, 1982, at St Mary’s Hospital, London
Prince William was the first royal heir to the throne to be born in a hospital.
Prince Harry 1984, at St Mary’s Hospital, London
Sarah, the Duchess of York gave birth to:
Princess Beatrice 1988, at The Portland Hospital, London
Princess Eugenie 1990, at the Portland Hospital, London.
The Countess of Wessex gave birth to:
Lady Louise, 2003 at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey
Viscount Severn, 2007 at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey
The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to:
Prince George, 2013 at St. Mary’s Hospital, London
Prince Charlotte, 2015, at St. Mary’s Hospital, London
Prince Louis, 2018, at St. Mary’s Hospital, London
So where would Baby Sussex be born?
There is no official news on this from the Palace at the moment, but that has put no damper on our eager anticipation on the birth of Baby Sussex 1.0, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child!
God bless Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and God save the Queen!
FOR GOD, QUEEN AND COUNTRY
