According to reports, Kate Middleton had already packed her hospital bag before the big day. And though it likely contained all the expected items, it also allegedly held a few surprise trinkets from her friends and family members.
According to a source who spoke to OK Magazine, Kate’s bag contained tiny gifts from her two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The source claims each of the children gave their mother one of their toys to bring along with her to the hospital to welcome their new sibling.
Another meaningful item Kate reportedly packed was a royal pendant, which was gifted to her by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. It was meant to bring her good luck in the birthing suite at St. Mary’s Hospital. For even more luck, the source said, Kate packed her mother's black onyx beads.
To pass the time the source said Kate packed a Kindle "loaded with the latest Booker prize winners and she likes to watch old Bette Davis movies."
Thanks to this packing list, her birthing suite sounds more like a spa experience than child birth. But, as Baby Center U.K. recommends, she may have also wanted to ensure she had some comfortable clothing options like pajamas and slippers, along with her favorite snacks, lip balm, hair bands, and her favorite pillow just for good measure. Though, odds are the Duchess is more than comfortable during her stay.
