Prince William Knights Kate Middleton’s Ob-Gyn
Respect is due when you've delivered a baby prince who also happens to be the future king of England. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that one gynecologist should also be called “Sir.” READ: Another Royal Baby for Kate Middleton? The Telegraph is reporting that doctor Marcus Setchell, who delivered Prince George in July 2013, was knighted by proud papa Prince William on Tuesday at Buckingham Palace. Now Sir Marcus Setchell is officially a “Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (RVO)," an honor personally bestowed by Queen Elizabeth II, Prince George’s great-grandmother. According to US Magazine, Setchell served as a the Queen’s gynecologist since joining the royal household in 1990. In addition, he’s treated other royal relatives, including Sophie, Countess of Wessex, delivering her two children (James, Viscount Severn, 6, and Lady Louise Windsor, 10). The magazine also reports that Setchell was the one to diagnose Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton with hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness that could potentially cause serious complications. Fortunately, Middleton gave birth to "bouncing baby" George and Setchell was on hand to deliver him at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
