    Who knew?!

    Prince Charles revealed an unknown royal fact during a visit with his wife Camilla to King's Hospital on Thursday, Jan. 23 in Camberwell, London, where the Duchess of Cornwall was born.

    As the Prince of Wales praised the hospital staff, the royal happened to make known that he and his wife were both brought into this world by the same doctor.

    "My darling wife was born here but amazingly we had the same gynecologist and nurse," Prince George's 65-year-old granddad said, according to reports.

    The royal couple visited the neo-natal ward during their tour of the hospital. Camilla, who has five grandchildren herself, let her motherly instincts shine while she visited with the children, beaming from ear to ear as she smiled and made silly faces at the tiny babies.

    "Camilla was fantastic," 19-year-old Amy Bernadout, whose five-month-old son Jessie is a patient at the hospital, told reporters. "She had Jessie in fits of giggles and was so good with him, pulling funny faces to make him laugh."

    "She's a gran herself, so she's obviously good with babies," she added.

    The Duchess of Cornwall, who was gifted with a teddy bear decorated with the words, "I'm a King's baby" (too cute!), also took particular interest in the premature babies in the neo-natal ward.

    "The duchess was quite overwhelmed seeing such tiny babies," Ruth Finlay, a 23-year-old nurse at the hospital, said. "I was feeding one of our premature twins and she said her daughter had had identical twins too."

    "But she said, 'Thank goodness my grandsons were not born prematurely - they were six-and-a-half pounds,'" she continued. "I replied, 'Gosh, that's big compared to the babies in here.'"

    Charles, who was also seen greeting patients and shaking hands with the staff, praised the hardworking employees at the hospital upon the couple's exit, "The work you do here is fantastic, particularly having seen the neonatal unit and elderly wing - even more significant with our advancing years!"
