Royal baby music: classical music composed for Royal birthdays
Australian composer Malcolm Williamson was Master of the Queen's Music when Prince Harry was born in 1985, so it fell to him to mark the occasion with song. He wrote the catchily-titled 'Songs for a Royal Baby in honour of the birth of Prince Henry of Wales', which turned out to be one of the last royally-inspired works of his career.
