As the situation is, the alternative would be to move in with Charles and Camilla till their own appartment is ready. Would that be better? IMHo not.

Why living with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall would not be a good solution?

Why would staying with the Middletons not be a good solution? Seems like it would be six of one and half-dozen of the other, except that at Clarence House, because of Charles' and Camilla's schedules, they'd mostly be around employees. The Middletons being family would be more comfortable. But in the long run, it's really their decision what to do after the baby is born.

Kate would be more comfortable learning how to take of her baby from her own mum especially if William is still flying after the baby comes. Charles and Camilla have their own schedule and will probably be up in Scotland during Aug & Sept. I don't see why the DM is making a big deal about the baby living with "commoners" they are his/her grandparents and will spend a great deal of time with them in future

The Middletons live permanently in their home in the countryside where Catherine is at home. At Clarence House she would be a guest at a Royal residence with her in-laws more often than not away. So IMHO it would be more comfortable to stay with her parents till her own apartment is ready to move in.

Can you point where I said this?

They can stay in Balmoral with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, Carole can go with them.

Of course they can stay at any of the royal residences but they can stay with Kate's parents in Berkshire. Kate and the baby can stay at Nott Cottage and Carole could stay in the Middleton's Chelsea flat where James & Pippa live. She could still help with the baby but doesn't take the extra bedroom at the cottage. As we know, W&K will make their own decision when the time comes.

Both of these palaces are working palaces - receptions; meetings; garden parties etc. Each with a routine way of working. So these are not relaxing homely homes. HQM goes to Windsor for that, and Charles goes to Highgrove.

I had thought about Clarence House but all the room that is probably available is the flat that W&H shared and Harry currently uses that as his base. That only leaves the formal rooms.

Also there are limits to external access - CH has a v small garden but that is actually used for some of the PRince's projects; BP gardens are used for events.

Also across the summer months, HMQ and Charles go to Scotland, leaving a limited staff who do a spring clean. So again she would be on her own.

Her parents home is a good choice - lots of room inside and out; friends can drop by; good interim measure until the autumn when William will have decided his future and KP will be ready.

Mary of Teck was the first british-born heir's mother in recent history. Her eldest son Edward VIII was born at White Lodge, Richmond Park, residence of Mary's parent's family, The Tecks.
Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was the second. Queen Elizabeth II was born at her maternal grandfather's (14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne) London house. Princess Margaret was born at Glamis Castle in Scotland, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon's ancestral home.
The third, Diana, had problems with mother.

Just the way you put it, both Victoria and Elizabeth II qualify as British-born heirs mothers, making 6 of the last 7 mothers of future British monarchs British-born, while 5 of the last 7 fathers of future British monarchs are/were British-born.

What do Diana's problems with her mother have to do with her being a British-born mother of an heir? The Hanovers in particular were rather notorious for having problems between parents and children.

I think the point being made was that the mothers chose to give birth in their own mothers homes. Diana was known to have issues with her own mother at times so she might not have felt that was an option for her.

Having your royal baby in a hospital is a relative new trend it didn't start until the queen's grandchildren were born. Kate is most likely going to have the baby at a hospital.

Why is everyone on here acting like this story is true? Stop arguing over something that is probably no more than tabloid gossip.

A fellow Atlantan!

I think it's a given that this baby will be born in a hospital, unless of course, they don't get there in time.

It happens.

And as long as mother and baby are fine, what an awesome footnote in the annals of history. While I suppose I'm going off topic, has any royal been born on the way to the hospital?

I don't think so. I know it was pretty dicey with Sophie and Louise. I would think the royal protection officers have first aid training and in pinch deliver baby Cambridge if they had to. If Kate in London getting to a hospital wouldn't be a problem but someplace like Balmoral could be more tricky. They scrambled a raf sea king to take Phillip to the hospital when he had his heart problem 2 Christmases ago. I imagine that Kate wouldn't venture past Berkshire as the due date nears.

I agree. I'm sure that she is being checked continually. As soon as she reaches a certain date, or sooner if things look like they could happen, she will be kept nearby.

You need a desert or technogenic disaster for such thing. First baby's birth lasts 10-20 h

Not always. A friend of mine told her husband to take her bag out to the car while she went to brush her hair. He waited in the car for her but then went back inside to find her on the bathroom floor with the new baby. She later laughed and said she didnt know why women made such a big fuss about child birth because she didnt feel much of anything and hoped the second child would be just as easy (it wasnt).
