The Queen’s daughter chatted with maternity experts while seeing a demonstration of a new intrapartum fetal monitoring tool, which monitors babies’ safety during labor to alert medical staff to start a childbirth if the baby’s head gets stuck in the mother’s pelvis.
The clip in question was from the Princess of Wales and the Princess Royal’s joint visit to maternity organizations in April 2022
‘Stuck?’ Anne asked with a laugh.
The Princess – who is mother to Peter Phillips, 44, and Zara Tindall, 40 – then told the group how she feared it could happen to her during one of her pregnancies, adding: “I thought it was kinda interesting… ended in a good way.
Prof Tim Draycott, RCOG vice-president and professor of midwifery – who was helping to demonstrate the tool, later said: ‘She said she had tripped over a horse-drawn truck when she was heavily pregnant and thought it had happened.”

One royal fan said: “She’s just respectful and understands her role and responsibilities.”
