Kate Middleton's Mom Carole, Sister Pippa Won't Be in Delivery Room
Kate Middleton has the full love and support of her mum and sis -- but that doesn't mean Carole and Pippa Middleton will be coaching the Duchess of Cambridge in the birthing suite at St. Mary's Hospital. Contrary to speculation, Kate's mother Carole, 58, and sister Pippa will not be in the delivery room in the Lido Wing as Kate welcomes her first born. "Buckingham Palace denied rumors that they were going to be in the delivery room with Kate. She very much wants just her husband to be there," NBC News reported on Monday, July 22.
Nevertheless, members of the Middleton family left the family home in Bucklebury early Monday after news broke that Kate had gone into labor, with husband Prince William escorting her into the hospital early that morning.
And, had Kate ever found herself out of reach of a hospital, her mother was in fact equipped to deliver her: A former British Airways flight attendant, Carole had been trained to act as an emergency midwife back in 1976, Marcia Moody confirmed in her book Kate: A Biography.
Kate and William, both 31, spent the final week of her pregnancy at the Middleton home to escape London's stifling heat (the family abode features a swimming pool and air condition) -- returning to London last Friday.
