Family and friends watched as the infants - born on the same day as Prince George of Cambridge - were given a commemorative birth certificate by the Mayor of Havering, Cllr Eric Munday, in Langtons House register office.

The tots’ parents will also receive unique silver pennies which were commissioned by the Royal Mint to mark the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first child on July 22.

Stacey Adamson, from Chestnut Avenue, Hornchurch, said: “It was an important thing to do and now my daughter Sadie has a picture of herself with the mayor and a piece of history to keep.”

Stacey was due to go into labour on July 17 - her birthday - but Sadie had other ideas.

It was only hours after giving birth to her daughter that Stacey realised Kate Middleton had herself gone into labour.

Jane Archer, from Dagenham Road, Rush Green, was the subject of many jokes during her pregnancy about the fact her baby could be born on the same day as the prince.

However, she didn’t believe it, thinking son James would arrive late like her daughters.

She said: “It was really lovely and the certificate is a nice thing for James, something I can put away for him.

“It was good to meet the other mums.”

Estella Ogunlusi, from Dagenham, attended the ceremony as her son Akinkorede had his birth registered in Havering.

She said: “It was nice for my child to be recognised. My mother was visiting from Nigeria so she got to meet the mayor, which was great.”

Stacey added: “We will probably see the birthday celebrations for George every year and although we won’t have them on the same scale, it will be really nice.”
