While the world waits outside St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, Kate Middleton slipped out for a dip in the pool. 

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen leaving Buckingham Palace for a swim in the Queen’s pool with her son, Prince George. 

Accompanied by up to 5 bodyguards, the royal mother drove herself through the gates along with her nanny Maria Borrallo, navigating through the huge crowds. 

Apparently Kate is in the middle of teaching George, who is 21 months old, to swim. 


With her hair down, the Duchess seemed unfazed by the fact that she is several days overdue. 

Others believe that the 33-year-old was swimming in an attempt to bring on the birth of her second child. 

Baby experts often recommend swimming to overdue mothers as a way of bringing on labour naturally.
