KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, could follow in the Queen’s footsteps for her third royal baby, with a big change for the birth.
But it is thought Kate may change her birthing plan to instead have her baby boy or girl next month at home in Kensington Palace.
The Queen kept with royal tradition to have all her four children, Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward, at home in Buckingham Palace.
Princess Diana broke that custom and had both Prince Harry and Prince William at St. Mary’s Hospital in the private Lindo Wing.
Kate followed her husband mother’s footsteps and had George and Charlotte at the same hospital.
Home births are one of a number of royal rules and traditions for expectant royals.
The Queen also has to be the first to know about the birth, with Prince William thought to have called his grandmother on an encrypted phone to tell her the news of Prince George.
