South West Attraction Celebrates Own Royal Arrival
PUXTON Park in the West Country has named its newest arrival after the Royal Princess after they were born on the same day.
Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was born on Saturday in the Lindo Wing of London’s St Mary’s Hospital weighing 8lbs 3oz (3.7kg).
On the same day, just six hours after the Royal Princess was born, Puxton Park, outside Weston-super-Mare, welcomed a healthy baby lamb to its farm.
To celebrate her arrival on the same day as the second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, staff have honoured the occasion by naming the lamb Charlotte.
Puxton’s Alistair Mead said: “The world has been waiting in anticipation for the arrival of the second Royal Baby, as it is a significant historic milestone.
“We were thrilled to welcome our own baby lamb today, and have named her in honour of her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.”
The Duchess of Cambridge, 33, was well overdue when she was admitted to St Mary’s Hospital and her baby finally arrived at 8.34am on May 2.
The baby, whose full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, is the forth in line to the throne and is the first princess to be born in 25 years.
