#RoyalBaby’s birthday buddies

Shares with some big names

The as-yet unnamed baby boy who will one day become King of England finally arrived safely at 4.24pm on 22 July 2013 – meaning that he shares a birthday with plenty of prominent figures.

Oscar de la Renta, for example – a man who has also made history, albeit in a somewhat different way – celebrated his 81st yesterday.

Rhys Ifans, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Selena Gomez also blow out their candles on 22 July, while there’s another royal contender in town in Prince Felix of Denmark.

Plus, in a neat symmetry (given the hysteria at the news we're witnessing across the pond), the royal birth marks 50 years since the first Beatles album was released in the US.

Hey – Jude for an outside bet at the name, anyone?

Newsflash: Penelope Cruz gave birth to her second child with Javier Bardem, a girl, on the very same day as the new Prince was born. Could it be written in the stars...?
