I am completely annoyed. Kate and Will having a boy means they won’t be naming the baby Chardonnay. And I also wish people paid as much attention to wine as they did to the royal baby watch. Well I know two people who did: Kate and Will! They popped out their punk in a hospital that has its own wine list!!!
This is something I’d make up, but it’s actually true. The Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s has some pretty awesome services. They have a “dedicated hotel services team” that’ll deliver food catered to any taste and need, and a “comprehensive wine list should you wish to enjoy a glass of Champagne and toast your baby’s arrival.” This would have come in very handy if Kate and Will had just named their kid Chardonnay!
I don’t know what’s on the Lindo wine list and I’m not going to bug them to find out since I hope a hospital has better things to do than answer grapefriend’s email (sort of). But if they’re popping some celebratory bubbly, the ones that have a royal warrant are Bollinger, Laurent Perrier, Mumm et Cie, Roederer, Pol Roger, Perrier-Jouët, and Veuve Clicquot. I’m sure Lindo was well stocked.
