King’s Lynn hospital celebrates Royal Wedding babies

Special gifts for children born on a day of celebrations

Baby Isobel Holland will have a birthday that no-one will be able to forget.

She arrived at eight minutes past midnight and was the first in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), King's Lynn, to put in an appearance on Royal Wedding day.

Weighing 7lb 8.5oz, Isobel is a second child for parents Elaine and Neil Holland, of Heacham, who also have a two-year-old son Aidan.

To mark the special date, the QEH gave all children born on Friday a ceramic moneybox complete with a baby picture, the date and the word Princess or Prince before their names.

Mrs Holland said she had been in labour for around four hours before Isobel decided that she was going to share her birthday with nothing less than a national celebration.
