Just a day later the little boy made his debut to the world media as he was pictured on the steps of the hospital in his mother’s arms.
The hospital is also where Prince William was born and indeed the newborn Duke was photographed in Princess Diana’s arms in the same spot 32-years-ago. Prince Harry was also born there, as were Peter and Zara Philips.
Delivery packages including a one-night stay at the Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital range from £5,215 - £6,745. Extra nights cost from £945 to £1,155.
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".
