Luca was the first one of four babies born at the RLI on the same day as the royal baby.

Build-A-Bear donated 1,000 teddy bears to 10 ‘royal’ hospitals, infirmaries and maternity units across the UK, including 100 being delivered to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

The bears were gifted to babies born on the same day as the royal baby, with the remaining bears being distributed to those born in the coming days.
