Kate Turner was the first Mum to give birth at the George Eliot after the birth of Princess Charlotte. Baby Charlie was welcomed into the world not long after the Royal birth.
Little Charlie Turner weighed just over 8lbs when he was delivered by caesarean section within the labour suite of the George Eliot Hospital Maternity Unit.
The family were presented with a beautiful shawl knitted by Bedworth resident, Mrs Greenway to mark the happy occasion.
The proud parents were excited that their baby was the first baby born after the Royal Princess at the George Eliot.
Staff at the Maternity Unit were surprised that there were so many other similarities between the two babies born on the same day. Kate was also just over a week late expecting her baby and the proud parents didn’t know the name of the new Royal baby Princess Charlotte when they named their son Charlie.
Proud dad, Richard Turner said: “Kate went into labour in the early hours of Saturday morning and had Charlie a few hours after the Duchess of Cambridge. We would like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone in the maternity unit including the doctors, nurses, midwives and staff in Drayton Ward.”
George Eliot Hospital Head of Midwifery, Alison Talbot said:”We would like to say a special thank you to Mrs Greenway for knitting such a lovely baby shawl and wishing to donate this to the first baby born after the Royal birth.”
Both Kate and Baby Charlie are doing well.
The maternity unit saw the arrival of four more babies on Saturday 2nd May.
