Royal baby news update

From hospital visits to rumoured godparents, check out the latest royal baby news


The past few days have seen Prince William and Kate Middleton’s pregnancy dominate the news, so we bring you a round up of what’s been going on.


The Duchess of Cambridge, who was admitted for hyperemesis a few days ago, is said to be feeling slightly better, and her mum Carole was seen arriving at the King Edward VII Hospital in Central London yesterday to visit her pregnant daughter.

Kate’s siblings Pippa and James also reportedly visited the Duchess for two hours, as she continues to be treated for a third day. They reportedly joined William, who has been at his wife’s bedside every day since she has been admitted.

On arriving at the hospital yesterday William was told that the hospital had breached patient confidentiality, after Kate’s private nurse was duped by a hoax call from an Australian radio show.

Pranksters from Sydney-based 2Day FM managed to convince hospital staff that they were the Queen and Prince of Wales, and were given private information about Kate’s condition.

John Lofthouse the chief executive of the hospital said the hoax was a “pretty poor trick” and came to the defence of his staff, saying they were trained to care for patients, not to cope with “journalistic trickery of this sort,” according to The Telegraph.

Following the announcement that Kate is expecting, the famous siblings Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton are reportedly favourites to become the godparents of the royal baby-to-be, according to The Daily Mail.

“I think Harry and Pippa are very likely,” said Joe Little, managing editor of the Majesty royal magazine.

“As you know most people have just one or two godparents. But in royal circles you have a lot more, certainly William had quite a team.”

“I rather think they won’t have quite so many – perhaps four. Harry would take care of the royal connection and Pippa would take care of the Middleton side,” he explained.

Wow, it has been a bumper week for royal baby news!
