The DailyMail reported that a couple married on the same day as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge discovered they are also expecting their first child just hours before it emerged Kate Middleton was pregnant!

James and Charlotte Durrant, tied the knot as Prince William and Kate were wed at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.

And amazingly they told family and friends that Charlotte was pregnant on the same day as the world found out Kate was also expecting.

James, 29, who works at Clarke and Simpson estate agents in Framlingham, said: 'We couldn't believe it. 'We told our parents and a few others quite early on but we let everyone else know on Monday morning. It was then that I received a text from someone in the early afternoon that said "they're copying you again".

'What is it with your Royal connections?' The delighted dad-to-be added: 'To be married on the same day as them was a coincidence but to share a second big moment in your life, well that's quite something else.'

Charlotte, 35, a senior nurse at Ipswich Hospital, said she is now about 17 weeks into her pregnancy with the baby due on May 29. James, whose middle name is also William, said she had not been quite as ill with morning sickness as poor Kate.

'Charlotte hasn't been quite as ill as Kate, but she has been suffering,' he said. 'It'll be great for our little boy or girl to have a birthday so close to the future monarch.'

And if the Durrants have a little boy he could well be called William. 'William is very much a family name for us,' said James. 'It's my middle name, brother's first name and father's middle name.'
