Prince Edward was born 10 March 1964 in the Belgian Suite at Buckingham Palace, attended by midwife Helen Rowe and ob-gyn John Harold Peel. The last of Queen Elizabeth II’s children, it was the first to be active and conscious, at a time when “twilight sleep” - knocking out the mother and delivering via forceps - was beginning to phase out. All the Queen’s children were Royal homebirths. Her first birth in 1948 had already marked the end of centuries’ long tradition of Royal observation. With the birth of her fourth and final child, the Queen was said to lay down the terms for how she wanted to deliver, breaking yet another tradition by having her husband present.

'Birth Undisturbed' is an award-winning fictional narrative series by British photographer Natalie Lennard. Travelling through the world and history to depict birth from ancient to modern, and squalid to famous, Natalie Lennard strives to combine the rawness of childbirth and the beauty of narrative photography in a completely unprecedented way, depicting birthing scenes of icons from the Virgin Mary to Calamity Jane and the Queen. Partly inspired by her own experience of motherhood and birth, and by highlighting key figureheads and writers from the realm of essential birth philosophy, Natalie Lennard strives to speak a new artistic language through cinematic and compelling stories. Birth Undisturbed has been featured in the Daily Mail, Yahoo, The Sun, Aesthetica and BJP Portrait of Humanity; and exhibited in London, USA, Barcelona, Kuala Lumpur and Lagos Nigeria. The series has won multiple awards for its images and filmmaking, including the Julia Margaret Cameron Award, BJP Portrait of Humanity, ND Awards Fine Art, and Aesthetica Short Film Festival Official Selection 2020.
