1983: Prince William's first birthday

Prince Williams's first birthday was celebrated on 21 June 1983, but Prince Charles and Lady Diana were away in Canada.

In Birmingham an event was organised for thirty babies who shared the same birthday.

His parents were on tour in Ottawa, Canada, and had a series of engagements which the BBC's Martin Bell described in his report that day as "tedious".
