Prime Minister David Cameron will take ‘place in the queue’ to meet Royal Baby

Prime Minister David Cameron has said that he is doubtful he will get a private meeting of the Royal Baby earlier than anyone else.

“I doubt it,” David said when asked if he was going to be given a special meeting with the little one after the summer. “I think you’ve got to wait your place in the queue”.


David Cameron revealed he was “pottering around the kitchen” when he found out Kate was in labour.

The Prime Minister also revealed that he only found out about the Duchess of Cambridge going into labour when he went downstairs for work.

“I was pottering around the kitchen and then went down to the office and it was all kicking off,” he told Channel 5 News’ Emma Crosby.

David also said he would likely only know of the baby’s birth a “minute” before it becomes worldwide headlines. The politician, who has his own children with wife Samantha Cameron, also told Prince William to just “enjoy” the moment as he and wife Kate become new parents.

The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to hospital at around 5.30am on Monday morning when she and Prince William were driven to the Lindo Wing from Kensington Palace. The couple have been staying at the Palace after returning from her parents’ house on Friday afternoon.

After their arrival the Palace released a statement confirming Kate was in the early states of labour.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour.

 “The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge,” the statement read.

A spokesman for the couple later added that the Duchess’ labour was “progressing as normal“. The Royal couple announced they were expecting their first child in December 2012, when Kate spent several days in hospital after suffering from severe morning sickness.
As the world awaits the arrival of baby Cambridge, crowds have gathered outside the Lindo Wing and in front of Buckingham Palace’s gates.
