The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed a baby boy into the world yesterday, but they weren’t the only ones.

While the city was glued to media all weekend, desperately awaiting news of the arrival of another royal, women continued to turn up at the city’s Singleton Hospital to give birth to their own little prince or princess.

We caught up with some new parents to find out if their own little bundle of joy shared any common ground with the 7th in line to the throne.

New Mum Theresa Connell from Gendros said: “It doesn’t matter that they live in a big castle or whatever. We’re all people at the end of the day.

“The thing I think I have most in common is that I nearly had a home birth like Meghan did. It was slightly different though because I had no idea I was pregnant and was on the bog thinking I was constipated!

“It’d be a funny story but it’s the second time it’s happened now and my husband is tamping.”

West Cross Mum Cheryl Gray said: “There’s a crowd of people outside Meghan’s hospital waiting for important news which I suppose is a bit similar to the crowd of men from the Linden Tree who’ll be waiting for the DNA results.

“There’s another link because one of the potential Dads is a ginger. Although unlike Meghan I’m not so keen to broadcast that.”

Dad to a newly born son Pete Bowen from Landore said: “I addressed a crowd of people yesterday with the same pride and enthusiasm as Harry.

“It was a little more awkward for me because the crowd I addressed was my ‘real’ family and my new sons mother is a bird I met from Llanelli on a stag do in Tenby last August.

“We’re going to call him Folly because I impregnated her in Folly Farm. It’s quite a quirky name which I’m sure is on the Sussex’s list.”
