One year ago, the Boston Standard featured a newborn girl who came into the world on the same day at the new royal princess.

Born to a Boston couple, Lou-Ella arrived at Pilgrim Hospital on May 2, just hours after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Princess Charlotte for the first time.

The United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, which runs the hospital, said it was not aware of a birth in the county closer to the time of Princess Charlotte’s arrival.

With the national press marking the Princess’ first birthday last week, The Standard caught up with Lou-Ella.

Mum Lyndsey Cawthorn described Lou-Ella one year on as ‘very loving’.

She said the family have enjoyed the fact the tot shares her birthday with Princess Charlotte, saying: “It has been fun for the family. Her name is always been ‘Princess’ Lou-Ella.”

The family have a special coin produced by the Royal Mint for children born on May 2.

Lou-Ella enjoyed her birthday with family celebrations and a trip on the May Fair.
