Kensington Palace on Thursday (30 April) delivered a birthday cake to one of the royal superfans outside the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth.

Terry Hutt, who has been sleeping on a bench outside St Marys hospital for the past 10 days waiting for the arrival of the Duchess of Cambridge, celebrated his 80th birthday on Thursday.

Hutt told journalists he was hopeful the new baby would share his birthday. That hadnt happened by early evening but the cake was a welcome surprise for Hutt.

I havent got the baby here but Ive got something special. Now Ive got I think its the 15th cake and this one is from the palace of course. Theyre wishing me well and Im looking forward to seeing them. A messenger brought it along. And it was a surprise.

A card accompanying the cake offered Hutt best wishes on his 80th birthday and was signed from the team at Kensington Palace, which is the official home of Prince William and his wife Kate.
