Even members of the royal family aren't exempt from a bargain.
Kate Middleton and Prince William will welcome their second child at the end of the month, reportedly on April 25th, and are availing of a "loyalty discount" for using the same hospital.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will once again be using the Lindo wing at St Mary's Hospital in London, where they also welcomed Prince George in July 2013.
And the hospital are giving the royal family a discount for using their services again, according to The Independent.
A two room suite with a two night stay costs approximately €9,000, but with their discounted rate, the Cambridges will be charged an estimated €8,200. Their consultant will also charge an estimated €8,700.
Parking outside and near the facility has been banned from today to April 30th, citing a "special event", for security reasons.
This time around, the couple will be doing things differently.
There will be no 'big reveal' outside the hospital, according to People magazine, and the Clarence House press office will confirm when the Duchess has gone into labour and when the baby has been born, as well as confirming its gender.
Prince William is currently 'on standby' and won't be further than two hours from central London and it's also reported there is a helicopter available should he need it.
