'Just like a five star hotel' - what Kate Middleton will be treated to in lavish $20k per night maternity ward with birth of third baby imminent

Most women can only dream of the pampering and five star treatment which will be lavished on Kate Middleton as she gives birth to her third child in the Lindo Wing of London's exclusive St Mary's Hospital.

Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are expecting the arrival of their third baby, with royal fans already camped outside the hospital eager for any news as the due date has arrived.

Speaking to The Sun, Ana Klemencic Cabuk, 36, of Richmond, south west London, talked of her experience in the swanky Lindo Wing, revealing what is in store for Kate Middleton.

Ms Cabuk gave birth to her first child in the Lindo Wing in October 2016 and compared the nearly $20,000 a night service and amenities to that of a five star hotel more than that of a maternity ward.

"Everything was nice and clean, and the bathroom had a good selection of toiletries and cosmetics – shampoos, conditioners, body lotions," Ms Cabuk told The Sun.

"You choose your food from the menu; you have a few options and every day they came and asked what my husband and I would like.

"On delivery day I had a huge breakfast. They offered a full English, pastries, freshly squeezed orange juices. It was just like a five star hotel.

"They also had an afternoon tea, which was like a restaurant. You got sandwiches, cakes, cookies, and different teas like English Breakfast, camomile, and peppermint. It was also possible to have champagne, but I don't drink much and was breastfeeding so I didn't have any.

"The dinner menu had things like lasagne, and a panna cotta dessert – that was my favourite, I had it twice. But I always tried something different.

"They also had very nice, refreshing soups, which was really needed after delivery," she continued clearly impressed with the food selection.

Ms Cabuk says she paid an extra $2000 for an epidural, making for a largely pain free 12 hour labour.

She and her husband were so impressed with the experience they plan on having their second child there this September.
