A royal composer has created a lullaby for Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby.Paul Mealor, who also wrote music for the couple's wedding as well as the hit Wherever You Are for the Military Wives Choir said that he penned the song Sleep On to accompany the next stage of the royal family's life. Welsh composer Paul's Ubi Caritas was one of the musical highlights of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding back in 2011.

"After writing music for the Royal Wedding it seemed natural to provide the musical accompaniment for the next stage of the royal couple's journey together," said Paul, 37.

Classical singer Hayley Westenra has provided the vocals for the soothing track. Featuring songs such as Hushabye Mountain and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, the singer's latest album, Hushabye is a relaxing collection for parents and children alike. "Paul and I got together to work on a song called Sleep On in honour of William and Kate's new arrival as it's such a joyous occasion which we can all celebrate," said the New Zealand soprano.

Full preparations are underway for the new royal arrival.One of the Queen's most trusted servants, Antonella Fresolone, has been appointed as the couple's new housekeeper.Although their new home is undergoing renovation, Italian Antonella is rumoured to have begun her duties for the family, paying special attention to the Duchess during her time of need. A royal insider said, "Antonella is renowned for being very hard working. She is extremely dedicated and fully intends for this job to become her whole life. The Queen will have given it her blessing." "She does not like to stop people progressing through the ranks and will be happy that William and Kate have someone they can trust."

Now with a defined baby bump, Kate has entered the third trimester of her pregnancy. Keeping busy with her royal duties, Kate recently visited a Hampshire children's hospice as part of Children's Hospice Week. As well as making visits to the children at the centre, the caring royal is also Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
