According to unearthed accounts, Kate might have wanted "her son to be born at the Royal Berkshire Hospital" as she spent a lot of her final weeks of pregnancy with her parents in Bucklebury, United Kingdom.
Royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter explained however that the Royal Berkshire Hospital was "not equipped to handle the security needs of the birth".
She continued: "The royals want the birth to be as easy on other patients at the hospital as possible." This would reportedly only be possible at St Mary’s where they routinely managed "complex pregnancies".
"Everyone had been so supportive and both William and I were really conscious that this was something that everyone was excited about," Kate explained last year to Giovanna Fletcher. "And you know we’re hugely grateful for the support that the public had shown us, and actually for us to be able to share that joy and appreciation with the public, I felt was really important."
She continued: "But equally it was coupled with a newborn baby, and inexperienced parents, and the uncertainty of what that held, so there were all sorts of mixed emotions."
We get you, Kate.
