The Duchess of Cambridge will deliver her baby naturally at the exclusive Lindo wing at St Mary's Hospital, it has been announced.
An extra night in a deluxe room costs £1,050, plus consultant's fees can come to around £6,000, depending on the care required, meaning a two-night stay can cost more than £12,000.
The announcement was made as it emerged the royal couple do not know the sex of their baby.
The Lindo has been a popular birthplace for royal children over the years. Peter and Zara Phillips were both born in the wing and Princess Michael of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester also gave birth there.
Fully refurbished last year, the wing is described as providing "leading private obstetric and neonatal care for 60 years".
Each room has satellite TV with major international channels, a radio, a safe, a bedside phone and a fridge.
The expectant mother and her visitors can access the internet via wifi and there is a choice of daily newspaper delivered to the room each morning. Toiletries are also provided.
All meals are freshly prepared in a dedicated kitchen and tea and coffee is provided for mothers and guests throughout the day.
The wing also offers a "comprehensive wine list should you wish to enjoy a glass of champagne and toast your baby's arrival".
