Kate Middleton's reported due date has come and go, and while media outles have already swarmed outside of St. Mary's hospital, the Duchess may actually deliver the baby at another hospital, according to reports. 

The Telegraph pointed out that Middleton has been relaxing at her parent's home in Bucklebury, Berkshire this week with her husband Prince William, who is currently on paternity leave from his RAF job. 

Although it was confirmed that the Duchess will give birth at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's in London, a backup plan is in place for the birth at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, where she was born in 1982. 

Middleton's parents' house is reportedly 53 miles away from St. Mary's hospital, while Berkshire is only a 30 minute drive. 

"There are contingencies in place for wherever the Duchess happens to be, and one of them is the Royal Berkshire," a source told The Telegraph. "It is still a possibility that she could give birth there, though that would only be in extremis, as the expectation is that she will go to St Mary's."

The Royal Berkshire Hospital, is located in the center of Reading and delivers almost 6,000 babies per year. The facility gives women the choice of giving birth on the labor ward or in the Rushey midwife-led birth centre, which has four rooms themed on the four seasons.

Meanwhile, The Queen, 87, who is scheduled for her annual summer vacation on July 19 hopes her great-grandchild will arrive sooner than later. 

When asked  for an update on the baby by a group of schoolchildren at an appearance in Lake Windermere in Cumbria on July 17, The Queen said that there has been "no sign yet," of the new addition.

"I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday," she said. 

The Kensington Palace previously announced the royal baby was due in mid-July, but never gave an exact date.
