Sidford baby picture identified

Meet Lianne Cross, identified as the baby pictured from the 1981 wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer

MEET Lianne Cross, who was a baby in 1981 when she was dressed in this clown’s outfit to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

Following an appeal in the Sidmouth Herald asking who the baby was who featured in the paper three decades ago, Lianne’s aunt, Tracy, got in touch.

Lianne was pictured at Lower Brook Meadow, Sidford, in 1981, but now, aged 30, she lives in Telford with her partner and two children, said Tracy, from Honiton, who went out especially to buy a copy of the Herald after her mother said her brother had heard about it being published.

“She was six months when the picture was taken and I was 15,” she said.

*Lianne’s picture also features in a special Royal Wedding supplement in next week’s Sidmouth Herald.
