A baby girl in Basildon has received a royal welcome, after she was born at exactly the same time as the Prince of Cambridge.
And - quite appropriately - she's been named Kate.
Mum Natia Kavelashvili - who gave birth at Basildon University Hospital yesterday - had never thought that she might share her big moment with the Duchess of Cambridge.
The mum of two, from Langdon Hills, Essex, said: "I was being prepared to have a caesarean earlier in the day, but there was an emergency so my caesarean was delayed for a while.
"It is strange to think that this meant I ended up having my baby at 4.24pm."
With the imminent arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's firstborn here are some of the more unusual facts about royal babies.
We look back at Kate's journey since early December 2012 when it became public knowledge that a royal baby was on its way.
As the Duchess of Cambridge enters St Mary's Hospital in the early stages of labour, royal memorabilia has sprung up across the net.
