Range Rover: A chariot fit for a royal baby-in-waiting
“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. Prince William drove her there himself, although they were flanked by security in an Audi.
She arrived at the hospital around 6 a.m.
The Range Rover and Audi were spotted at the rear of the hospital and the couple are reported to have calmly entered through one of the hospital’s side entrances.
About ten-and-a-half hours later, at 4:24 p.m., Kate gave birth to a baby boy, weighing 8 lbs 6 oz.
