A PYRAMID HILL local has a connection to the newest addition to the United Kingdom’s royal family, Prince George.
But Carol Byrne isn’t claiming royal blood.
She is just amazed that important dates and names in her life match up with the third-in-line to the throne.
Mrs Byrne's mother was born in England on the same date Prince George was – July 22 – only many years before.
Mrs Byrne’s father was also called George.
Then, Mrs Byrne was surprised to hear Prince George's christening date will coincide with her 65th birthday on October 23.
She said she had always followed the royal family a little bit and saw Princess Diana when she visited Bendigo in 1983.
Mrs Byrne said she had a feeling all of these would dates and names would meet up as the birth drew nearer.
“They must have been listening to me,” she joked.
