A New Royal Baby
On Saturday William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge became the proud parents of a new baby daughter. She was born in London and her name will be Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Some people were determined to be among the first to see the new royal baby. Despite the cool, rainy weather at this time of year they began camping in tents outside the hospital several weeks before the baby was due. Some supporters had been waiting patiently for as long as two weeks and had a collection of Union Jack flags, balloons and bunting.
On Saturday these ‘super fans’ had a special surprise when a delivery of hot coffees and croissants arrived. The breakfast treat was a surprise gift from William and Kate to help the campers to celebrate.
