Filipino nurses were among those who attended to the delivery of the first born of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and future king of England at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

A report on interaksyon.com, the online news portal of TV-5, quoted a Filipina nurse, who requested anonymity, as saying that the Filipino nurses were known as “theater nurses” or those assigned to the hospital’s operating rooms.

The nurses said they are happy that the former Kate Middleton gave birth Monday (early Tuesday in Manila) at St. Mary’s Hospital.

The Filipino nurses have been ordered to keep secret other details of the birth for the privacy and security of the royal family, the report said.

The report said Filipino nurses, numbering about 300, are considered “dominant” at St. Mary’s Hospital. Some of them were assigned at the exclusive Lindo Wing, where Kate gave birth.

Several Filipinos are also working as cleaners, porters, logistics personnel, ambulance service trainers and administrative staff members at the hospital.

More than 200,000 Filipinos live and work in the UK, most of them in London.
