Two May babies hang on for a Jubilee birth
Thursday 7th June 2012, 3:00PM BST.
NINE babies were born over the four-day Jubilee weekend, but not one of them was given a royal name to mark the occasion.
Midwife Teresa Carr said Loveridge Ward had been relatively busy over the bank holiday, but there had been cake on offer and bunting put up to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Edward James Nicolle was the first baby born on Jubilee weekend. He was delivered at 2.41am on Saturday morning and weighed in at six pounds and three ounces.
Parents Danielle and Simon Nicolle said they had been surprised he had been born over the Jubilee.
