Is your baby due on 13 July? Children born on the same day as the Royal Baby are set to receive a copy of Hayley Westenra's new album, Hushabye.
Babies in the UK born on the same day as the Royal Baby will not only share a birthday with the third in line to the throne, but will also receive a copy of Hayley Westenra's latest album as a birthday present. The New Zealand soprano has personally requested that any child born on the same day as Prince William and Kate Middleton's new arrival should receive a copy of her Hushabye album, released next week.
The album is dedicated to the Royal Baby, and features a specially composed lullaby by Paul Mealor alongside new arrangements of old favourites including Twinkle Twinkle and Hushabye Mountain. It's designed to provide a calming soundtrack to newborns and their parents.
Parents whose babies are due on 13 July can claim their free copy of the CD from Hayley's website. The album is released on 17 June.
