Many people around the world will be celebrating the birth of the Royal baby, but for 77-year-old Terry Hutt the birth of the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be another great royal occasion at which he is present.
Mr Hutt has attended many royal events during his life, the Cambridge News website says that: “Terry had his first brush with royalty at the age of 4, when he met the Queen Mother travelling around London during the Blitz.”
Terry’s wife, Joy, said to the Cambridge News, “He is one of those people that goes up on the birthdays of Diana and the Queen Mum. I don’t really think that he needs to do that now after all this time, but he feels he wants to.”
Recently, Mr Hutt was present at the King Edward VII hospital where he held what the media described as a vigil for the Duchess of Cambridge who was suffering at the time (in the early stages of pregnancy) with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. He brought flowers and cards for the Duchess.
Mr Hutt’s choice of dress is always consistent, as he describes, “[The Queen] knows me as the Union Jack man as I’m always dressed up in red, white and blue… They’re my colours and she’ll always talk to me; we’ve talked about her mum before.”
Sky News’s Royal Reporter, Paul Harrison, who has been outside the Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital since the beginning of the month in prep for the Royal Baby’s birth, photographed the Royalist as he attended today awaiting the Royal Baby’s imminent birth. People on Twitter soon recognised the man as Mr Hutt.
The Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth any day now and many sources have called into question the due date of 13th July that the Daily Mail originally published – believing that the Duchess will give birth later.
