London: There was an Indian connection in the delivery of Britain`s new prince, who is third in line to the throne.

One of the doctors present at the birth of Prince William and wife Kate Middleton`s first child was Sunit Godambe, who grew up in Mumbai.

Godambe is a consultant neonatologist at St Mary`s Hospital in west London, where Kate yesterday gave birth to the baby boy after more than 10 hours of labour, The Daily Express reported.
The 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was cared for by a top medical team led by Queen Elizabeth II`s former gynaecologist Marcus Setchell.

69-year-old Setchell was in charge of the birth.
Besides Godambe and Setchell, obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston, a specialist in high-risk pregnancies, was present at the birth of the future king of Britain.
