England.

Little Chloe was born at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hosptial at 8.10pm on Monday, weighing 6lb 3oz – and her delighted parents had been totally oblivious to the national frenzy over events unfolding in London.

Mum Kirsty Anderson, 23, of Baker Close, did not know of the arrival of the royal baby, Prince George, until after her little bundle of joy had entered the world. She had gone into hosptial at 8am.

Dad Luke Woolley, 25, had no idea either, as he was concentrating on his partner too much to take any notice of the news.

“I was surprised,” said Kirsty. “We were over the moon – it’s quite special being born on the same day as a future king. It makes it extra special.

“Every year when it’s her birthday we can tell her and are going to make a box full of [newspaper] clippings for her on everything.

“She’s beautiful – absolutely tiny, but gorgeous.”
