Royal Baby

With Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, 7th in line to the throne, making his appearance this week we thought we would find a fact about royal births for you.

Prince Charles was the first royal male to be present at the birth of his sons (Princes William & Harry have since followed suit). Up to Charles it was customary for the royal fathers not to be allowed in the delivery room. The Duke of Edinburgh even played squash whilst the Queen was in labour with Charles to distract himself!
