Made in Chelsea star Binky Felstead wants to welcome her first child in royal fashion.

The 27-year-old is expecting with on/off boyfriend JP Patterson and while their journey to parenthood is playing out on our screens on the hit British reality show, they're off-screen plans for the next few weeks are possibly even juicier.

Binky reportedly wants to give birth in the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital, which is perhaps best known in recent years for the hospital where Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte in 2013 and 2015, respectively.

"Binky is talking about booking a bed in the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington. She wants to have the baby delivered by Tom Setchell, the son of Marcus Setchell. Marcus not only delivered Binky and her siblings, but Prince George too," a source told heat magazine.

"Marcus retired a couple of years ago but Tom is very highly thought of indeed.

"Binky wants the best and loves the idea of having her little girl delivered by the 'royal doctor'. She's been joking that she's basically a princess anyway so if it's good enough for Kate, she's happy."

But a royal birthing plan doesn't come cheap - it's believed the cost of a natural birth at the wing costs nearly €12,000.

As for her relationship with JP, the reality tv star said they are more in love than ever and that the pregnancy has brought them closer together.

"We are beyond the boyfriend and girlfriend thing," she told Mail Online.

"A lot of people automatically thought that the baby could be a bad thing for our relationship, and that if we got together again it was just for the baby.

"We have always loved each other. The love was never gone."

When their baby girl arrives, Binky will have her mother Jane, who regularly appears on MIC, on hand to support her too.
