Kensington Palace has not announced where
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, plans to give birth to her first child with Prince Harry.
If Meghan, 37, chooses to deliver at the
Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London, she will be choosing a maternity wing rich in royal history.
The Lindo Wing is where Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, has
delivered all three of her children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their newborns, from left, George, Charlotte and Louis, outside the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London. Getty Images, FILE
It is also where the late
Princess Diana delivered both Prince Harry and Prince William. The Prince and Princess of Wales leave the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's hospital with their newborn son, William, left, and Harry, right, in Paddington, London. Getty Images, FILE
Prince George and his father, William, are the only two direct heirs to the throne delivered in the Lindo Wing.

The Lindo Wing was opened by William and Harry's great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, in 1937. It is a private wing at St Mary’s Hospital run by Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust,
according to the wing's website.
The hospital has everything discerning parents like Meghan and Harry may want or need. Some of the amenities include Wi-Fi, satellite television, a bedside refrigerator and chefs who prepare meals on-site and to-order,
according to the Lindo Wing's website. Police officers stand guard outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital ahead of the birth of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge's third child on April 23, 2018 in London. Jack Taylor/Getty Images, FILE
There is even an afternoon tea service with the option of adding champagne.

The hospital boasts of having a hotel services team to help family members "settle in and feel at home." That may be a bonus for Meghan, whose
mom, Doria Ragland, lives in Los Angeles.
