A ROYALIST from Crow country has set off for London in the hope of welcoming the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby.

Terry Hutt, 77, left Royston on Tuesday bound for St Mary’s Hospital, where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth.

Clad head-to-toe in Union Jack gear, Mr Hutt has already spent three days camped out in London awaiting the new arrival, which was due to be born on Sunday. And after a brief visit to his Whaddon home this week, he has returned to the capital in the hope of greeting the new arrival.

He said: “I’m hoping we’ll have some good news soon. Everybody has been looking after me, and a messenger from the Palace came to see how I was.

“I’m looking forward to the birth because the baby is going to be our future king or queen. I’ll be there at the hospital and I’m hoping to shake hands with Kate and William and wish them well.”

Mr Hutt, who travels around the country to show his support for the royals, said he had been interviewed by several international television crews about the birth.

He added: “I’ve already suggest that if it’s a boy it should be named Terrence Norman, like me. If it’s a girl I’d like it to be called Amber, like my grand daughter.”
