A baby from Feltham born on the same day as Prince George celebrated turning one in regal style at a party thrown by the Royal Mint.

Bhavi Adalja, of Harlington Road West, Feltham, was one of 11 babies - all born, like the third-in-line-to-the-throne, on July 22 last year - invited to attend a very special party in St James's Park.

The lucky dozen were among 1,700 babies across the country sharing a birthday with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first-born who last year received a commemorative silver penny.

This year, representing an astonishing rate of inflation, all 12 were presented with sterling silver £5 coins struck in honour of the wee royal's first birthday.

Bhavi was joined by her parents Trushna and Hemal, and her elder sister Krishi, eight, at Saturday's (July 19) party, held in St James's Park and at a prestigious hotel.

Proud mum Trushna said: "The party was absolutely amazing! It was a pleasure and honour to be a part of this memorable day.

"We feel very lucky and blessed to be a part of celebrating our future king's first birthday! Well done to The Royal Mint in organising such tremendous event! They were very warm and welcoming."

The baby guest list was selected at random, with one tot from each of the UK's eleven regions invited, and a pair of twins rounding up the number.

Shane Bissett, the Royal Mint's director of commemorative coin and bullion, said: "The birth of Prince George of Cambridge was a joyous occasion not just for Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge but also for the whole nation.

"As he turns one we wanted to mark this historical moment with Bhavi, who shares this special birthday, with a commemorative sterling silver £5 coin she can treasure forever.

"The choice of a silver coin is significant too as crossing the precious metal across a baby's palm is a way to wish them wealth and good health throughout their life, whilst the £5 coin is a favourite for royal celebrations."
