Lindo Wing, St. Mary's Hospital, Kate Middleton, Duchess Catherine, Prince William

Imperial Private Healthcare

Food for thought: Ever wonder what kind of noshes will be made available to Kate Middleton when the mother of the future British monarch gives birth to the royal baby?

Quite the selection, it seems.

E! News has obtained a list of food items that Prince William's wife may choose from during her stay the posh Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London. And from the looks of it, Kate is in for quite the gourmet treat.

Lunch and dinner features an extensive and savory feast: Each meal has three courses, and Kate can start with options like cream of tomato soup before moving on to an entrée of lamb chops or Mediterranean grilled chicken with a choice of side dishes.

Desserts, meanwhile, include cheesecakes, fresh fruit platters or a selection of cheese.

Best of all, the Duchess of Cambridge and her visitors can toast the royal baby's arrival in high style: The menu also includes a list of wines and champagnes.

If Kate's got a hankering for something quick nibbles, the Lindo Wing has what it calls a Light Bite Menu, which is available daily and includes options like soups, salads, omelettes and potatoes, as well as sandwiches and baguettes.

Breakfast, meanwhile, offers up a bevy of selections of juice, fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread and hot beverages.

The hospital's menu also takes into account a variety of special dietary needs and cultural or religious requirements, and patients can opt for vegetarian, kosher and halal meals, which are prepared on-site at the Lindo Wing's kitchens.

Kate is ready to give birth any day now—her due date is reported to be either July 13 or 14—and the hospital holds special significance for the royal family: Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William at the very same wing 31 years ago.

That won't be the only parallels between William's arrival and the royal baby's: Following tradition, a proclamation announcing the baby's birth and gender will be delivered from the hospital to Buckingham Palace, where the notice will be placed on an easel that was used to herald Will's own arrival.

But it looks the Prince William may not strictly adhere to tradition: In a break from royal protocol, he reportedly plans to notify his grandmother of the baby's birth by calling her on an encrypted phone line.
