York Celebrates 11 New Babies On The Day Of The Royal Birth


9:08am 23rd July 2013

There were eleven births at York Hospital yesterday, the same day as the Royal baby arrived.

Little six-pound-fifteen-ounce Eve Hanlon from the Leeman Road area of the city was born closest to the baby prince. Her mum Astrid spoke to Minster FM and told us how she thinks Kate will be feeling today:


Here's a picture of baby Eve:

The Duke of Cambridge says he and his wife couldn't be happier following the birth of their son; the future King.
The new prince was born yesterday afternoon weighing eight-pounds six-ounces. Now everyone's waiting to find out the baby's name and catch the first glimpse of him.

James is frontrunner with the bookies. Henry, George and Philip are in there too, although we could face a right royal wait. When William was born we didn't get his name for a week and for Charles it was more like a month.

These people in York told Minster FM what they think the baby will be called:

Babies born on the same day as the new prince will be able to get a special silver penny from the Royal Mint to commemorate the birth of the third-in-line to the throne. There will be 60 days to claim the penny which will be in blue or pink pouch and carries a shield of the Royal Arms designed by Matthew Dent.

Parents of babies born on the same day as the royal baby should go to The Royal Mint's Facebook page to register the birth of their son or daughter and claim their coin.
