“I don’t often drive to the hospital with a wife in labour in the passenger seat, but when I do, I drive a Range Rover.”

Or how about, “I’m the future King of England and my wife is in labour. I could drive anything, but I choose to drive … a Range Rover.”

The words might need a little tweaking, but this, essentially, is the kind of advertising gold Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, handed Range Rover this morning when they drove to St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington in one of their vehicles.

She arrived at the hospital around 6 a.m.

About ten-and-a-half hours later, at 4:24 p.m., Kate gave birth to a baby boy, weighing 8 lbs 6 oz.

Even though the 56-year-old has said she believes the baby will be a girl by spiritual rights, a phrase describing God's decision, she doesn't know whether the world will accept another female like Diana, declaring 'the world crucified her like Jesus Christ'. The mum-of-two said she began talking with Diana soon after her tragic death in 1997 and even sold her 400-year-old chocolate-box cottage when she received a message in the middle of the night from Diana telling her to move house. With little hesitation Carolina put her house on the market and waited for the next sign from Princess Diana. A few weeks later the cottage had sold but Diana still hadn't told Carolina where to go.
