A boy born on the same date as Prince George by coincidence had his christening party in a room named after the royal baby.
Archie Asprey was made to feel like royalty during his christening reception in The Cambridge Suite at Buttercup Tearooms in St Mary’s Street, Stamford.
Archie was born to parents Sarah and Andrew Asprey on July 22 last year. On the same day Prince George of Cambridge was born to parents William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
Sarah was helping out at Buttercup and asked owner Trish Earl if she could use the new function room for the christening reception.
Sarah didn’t know it at the time, but the room had been named The Cambridge Suite. Trish settled on the name because the contract for the tearooms was signed on the date the baby Prince was born. She is also originally from Cambridge.
And by sheer coincidence the Aspreys would be the first to use the new room.
Sarah, of Paynes Field, Barnack, said: “It was just a coincidence that I know Trish and was helping her out in the tearooms. I asked her to be godmother and then the story came out.
“I suggested having the function here because it’s such a beautiful place. Then she explained why it was called the Cambridge Suite.”
