Kate Middleton polka dot dressWe’re all hoping that laboring Kate Middleton is faring okay over there in the princess birthing suite with satellite TV and wifi. But while we may not be getting minute to minute cervical updates (to which, Eve Vawter says WHY NOT?!), we do know that Kate Middleton had the perinatal sense to have both her mother and sister kindly wait outside the birthing fortress.

Us Weekly reports that although “members of the Middleton family left the family home” after Kate went into labor, Pippa Middleton and grandmother-to-be Carole are not crowding K Middy as she gets to pushing. No breathing down this duchess’s neck while she delivers an heir:

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.

SMART GIRL. Kate may have pulled a naive pregger move with that whole moses basket purchase but choosing to keep certain relatives out of the birthing vicinity definitely exhibits a wisdom beyond her new mommy status.
