Will Meghan have her baby at the Lindo Wing? Maternity unit tells staff to avoid taking holiday in April when the Duchess’s baby is due

The Lindo Wing maternity ward has told its staff to avoid taking holiday in April, prompting speculation that the first child of Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussexwill be born at the London hospital.
The six-months-pregnant Duchess revealed on a visit to Birkenhead last month that her baby is due in April or May.
Prince Harry, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge‘s three children were all born at the maternity unit at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.
The instructions to staff at the hospital suggest that Meghan, 37, will follow suit, the Daily Telegraph reported.
A source told the newspaper: ”Staff at the Lindo Wing have been asked not to take holiday in April.
‘Everyone thinks it’s got something to do with the royal baby but no one is confirming anything.’
Last month Meghan stopped in Birkenhead to chat to royal fan Kim Thompson, who said later: ‘She said she is six months pregnant and due at the end of April, beginning of May.’
Kitty Dudley, aged nine, said after meeting the couple: ‘I asked her if she was having a girl or a boy and she said she didn’t know.’
Meghan told friendly faces in the crowd that her husband the Duke of Sussex, who joined his wife for the visit to Merseyside, would make ‘a fantastic father’.
The price of a suite of two rooms, with one used as a living room, is available on application but five years ago it cost £6,265 for a one-night stay.
Each room has a satellite TV with major international channels, radio, bedside phone, fridge, free wi-fi and a choice of daily newspapers.
All meals are freshly prepared in a dedicated kitchen and there is even an afternoon tea service, for parents to celebrate their new arrival, the website suggests.
Prince William was born there in 1982, Prince Harry in 1984, Prince George in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince George in 2018.
In 2006, William visited the refurbished NHS neonatal unit at St Mary’s, cradling two tiny premature babies – one weighing just 5lbs.
Princess Diana returned to St Mary’s in April 1997 – four months before her death in a Paris car crash – when she toured the paediatric intensive care unit, meeting poorly youngsters.
It tells prospective mothers on its website: ‘Our world-class maternity care, combined with a personalised service, will relax and reassure you throughout one of the most emotional and exciting experiences of your life.
‘The Lindo Wing offers private en suite rooms, providing a modern, homely environment in which to start your new or expanded family life.
‘Deluxe rooms or suites are available for patients who would like to take advantage of a larger space.’
