Royal superfan missed birth of Princess Charlotte – because he went to the toilet

A royalist pensioner who spent weeks waiting on a bench outside a London hospital for the royal birth missed the vital moment – because he went to the toilet.

Terry Hutt, of Weston-Super-Mare, dressed in an array of Union Jack suits and waited on a bench outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital for a fortnight.

The loyal monarchist, who even spent his 80th birthday waiting with fellow “superfans”, popped to the toilet on Saturday morning and changed into one of his striking suits.

He told the Telegraph: “I heard all the screams go up, so I ran outside with my suit in my hand and jumped back onto the bench.”

Mr Hutt decorated the bench in red, white and blue regalia and was given a cake from Kensington Palace to mark his 80th on April 30.

He said: “A messenger came out with a chocolate cake and a note, but I brought it home for my children to enjoy with me.

“I would have like the princess to be born on my birthday, but going past the bookies and seeing the odds, I didn’t really think it was going to happen.”

Mr Hutt said he has already began packing a parcel with gifts including an outfit for Princess Charlotte.
he super fans were also treated to pastries and coffees from a patisserie while they were anxiously waiting for the royal birth.

The Duchess asked her staff to send the delivery to the fans as they camped outside.
