I'm going to weight in on this from a great grandmother's point of view and that is I am *done* with raising children and its a grandmother's prerogative to spoil the child and then send him/her home to mommy and daddy. I reserve the right to watch "the mother's revenge" in action which is when you laugh and remember all the time you've told your kids "just wait till you have kids of your own!".

I cannot speak for Doria but personally, I do not know of any woman in their 60s that would willingly want to take on day to day child care no matter how old or how cute the child may be. Nor do I know any children of women in their 60s that would even consider asking.

I think we pretty much can rule out Doria as "nanny" and resign her to the all important role of being the child's grandmother. Its the natural order of things.

Meghan appears healthy and happy during her pregnancy and that is what is most important.

A lot of reports coming in this morning that Meghan will give birth in the Lindo Wing at St Mary's in Paddington. People are saying they thought she'd give birth at Frimley Park under the NHS.

Lindo Wing makes sense! It has the most experience dealing with the type of massive media attention that the birth will bring.

Who knows? They are all just guessing still. I would imagine though if they are already in Windsor then they will go to a hospital there.

I didnít know Lindo Wing is only 7 miles apart from Frimley. One thing they talked about on one of the Royal Rota episode is the privacy and NHS point. While Lindo Wing is attached to a NHS hospital Incase something goes wrong, it is a private maternity ward that can accommodate security better.

Although the comment about Meghan snubbing Kate if she doesnít choose Lindo wing had me rolling my eyes. I doubt snubb Kate is part of Meghanís consideration either way.

Assuming that, as reported, they will be at Frogmore Cottage when Meghan goes into labor or it's a planned C-section for some reason, they might be planning to do the Lindo Wing if all is going as expected, but Frimley is close by if something goes wrong. And things do go wrong, sometimes, as we saw with Sophie. Either way it sounds as though there are good options, and I'm sure security has already considered several scenarios, including what if she suddenly goes into early labor on an engagement? That kind of what-if-ing is what they do.

It's not, it's 37 miles, about an hours drive.

Perhaps I missed the three when I skimmed one of the articles yesterday. It was a rough one.

Anyways, we'll find out soon enough where she's having the baby. Knowing the Sussexes, it could be none of the above. They certainly know how to keep a secret.

If, and I do mean if, they have the baby at Lindo doesn't mean she is having a planned C-section.

Even if their home is ready by then they also have Notts cottage. They may plan to spend the last weeks before she is due, at their London base. And then go to their new home with the baby when ready.

The article says Frimley Park is 7 miles closer to Frogmore than the Lindo Wing, not 7 miles from each other.
The two hospitals are in opposite directions from Frogmore. London is east, Frimley Park is southwest.

Personally I'm assuming that everything is proceeding the way it should, but we don't know. A planned C-section, unlikely as it may be, would be a reason that a delivery at Lindo Wing might be planned, even if they are in Windsor.

My guess is, though the article doesn't say so, that the staff at Frimley as well as the Lindo Wing have been warned to not ask for leave around the due date. The tabloids are just guessing but I think, if the couple have already settled down at Frogmore Cottage by March that Frimley is a distinct possibility for the birth the next month.

AH! I didn't imagine the 7 miles. I was getting concerned for myself. So really, it's not that much more of a difference for them either way. Plus if she's going to work close to her due date, they might not want to do the commute between London and Windsor every day in that late stage and just stay in London with weekends in Windsor.

Why would that affect location at all? I'm sure Frimley can handle a c-section if needed. Nevertheless, unless there is a reason, I doubt we'll see a c-section.

Timewise I'm guessing that the Lindo Wing might be more of a drive from Frogmore Cottage than Frimley if part of the drive is through London traffic-- depending on the time of day it might be quite a bit more time. Does anyone local have a comparative time estimate on the difference between the two?

Why might staff be asked not to take leave around the time? Both are major hospitals, and deal with multiple births and medical emergencies at the same time.

I doubt we'll see a C-section either, and of course any hospital is more than capable of handling one. The thing about planned C-sections is that you know when they are going to happen, so the Lindo Wing being 37 miles from Windsor wouldn't be an issue--no last minute frantic drive needed.

I think the larger point is that all of this is speculation. No one has any idea what is being planned by the Sussexes, so if we're speculating, there's lots to cover.

Based on the comments from others above. Is Lindo Wing really 37 miles away from Frogmore Cottage? It sounds like it was that far from Frimley, but Frimley isn't that much closer to Frogmore than Lindo Wing. AHHH! This is too much geography to sort out without a GPS for my brain.
