Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, holds her baby son outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital before leaving with Prince William, in central London

A Royal Family: E! News Special will detail exactly who was with Kate in the delivery room at St. Mary’s Hospital in London’s Paddington neighbourhood, all of the lavish amenities that come along with the hospital’s much-buzzed-about Lindo Wing, and delivery reactions from family and friends. A behind-the-scenes look at life in Kensington Palace will disclose details about the new nursery, household staff, and the life of protocol and etiquette that awaits the new prince.

It takes only one word to describe the life that the royal baby will lead. POSH. From private planes and trains to luxurious holidays, see what childhood has in store for him. Apart from the “members only” children’s club where he will be treated to days of cultured learning in surroundings that include a night studio, play lounge, cooking school and café, the royal family has always attempted to remain as “normal” as possible… given their lofty station.

Plus, in-depth look at the new parents might reveal what they could be like with a little one about the house. How involved will Her Majesty be in deciding how the child is raised? How involved are Kate’s parents expected to be? Are Kate and William going to be hands-on parents? Who will be getting up for those middle-of-the-night feedings? When can we expect a royal sibling for William and Kate’s son? All these questions, and more, will be answered by the experts, and family friends who will share their thoughts, views and expectations in this compelling special.

A Royal Baby Then and Now

While many believe Prince George of Cambridge’s name is a nod to the Queen and her father, George VI, there is also an interesting overlooked link to Princess Diana’s family.

“The three names George Alexander Louis are also the names of Prince William’s cousins,” royal observer Margaret Holder tells The London Evening Standard. “It’s intriguing that he’s also gone for the Spencer side. There is George McCorquodale, there is Alexander Fellowes and there is Louis Spencer, son of Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, and heir to the Althorp House. All three cousins attended William and Kate’s wedding.”

Ms. Holder adds, “I think this is another way of Prince William keeping his mother close, as he said about Diana’s engagement ring, which he gave to Kate.

A Closer Look At Prince George

24 hours after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge named their son George Alexander Louis, there is still a lot of speculation as to the inspiration behind the names. However, Buckingham Palace has revealed why the name was chosen: “They liked the names – no more, no less.”

It is believed William and Kate had already decided on the name by the time they introduced the Queen to her heir at Kensington Palace yesterday morning. There is no royal protocol which dictates the sovereign must be given approval, but it is believed the couple discussed their choice with her during their 30-minute meeting. William and Kate then told other members of their immediate family before making the news public at 6:15pm.

It took only two days for George’s name to be released, compared with seven days when William was born in 1982
