Victoria left the hospital with Oscar the day after. Madeline left the hospital with Leonore 3 days after her birth.

Some sources say that Princess Margaret was born by C-section and others say she was born naturally. Which one is it?

If QEII was born via C-section, her younger sister was too; I read that in those times there was principle "Once a Caesarean, always a Caesarean".

Is it important to know who was and wasn't born C-section?

I read, that Queen Elizabeth II. and her sister Margaret both were born on this way.

In cases such and the QM and QE, their generation was pretty well what the Doctor ordered. They decided if a C-Section was required and the mother, just like most other women of their generation, had little to no say.

Sophie was definitely an emergency medical situation and nearly died, which in this day and age is both dire and rare.

As to elective Caesarians, I have to admit I am personally of the opinion that when both mother and child are healthy there is no valid reason to intervene. It is definitely a "too posh to push" trend and they forget that a Caesarian is actually major surgery and considerably increases the risk factors. But there will always be doctors that get rich from unnecessary surgery of any type.

According to William Shawcross's bio of the Queen Mother, the Queen's birth was first induced but labour did not go as expected and a Caesarian operation was performed. The doctors later issued a statement in which they wrote that 'a certain line of treatment was successfully adopted'.

On the other hand, Margaret's birth at Glamis was overdue but went off easily after six hours labour. A natural birth. Dr Frank Reynolds, the obstetrician described it as 'everything went off smoothly without any trouble.'

I haven't looked up the Queen's other two offspring but Charles was born by Caesarian section while Edward, 'a small baby', wasn't. There's quite a description in Ingrid Seward's bio of the Queen 'My Husband and I' of his birth, of the Queen having a specialist in 'breathing techniques' and Prince Philip being at her side throughout the very long labour, holding her hand and making some jokey banter. In the end, like Andrew, Edward was born while his mother was in 'twilight sleep.'
