New baby at the Castle

The staff at Berkeley Castle were delighted to hear that Castle Director and heir to the Castle, Charles Berkeley and his wife Daisy have recently become proud parents of Mary Beatrice.
Mary arrived in the afternoon of Wednesday 12th January, weighing just 6lb 1oz at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol. 
Charles said;
“Daisy wasn’t due until the end of the month so it was a bit of surprise when she went into labour! However both mother and baby are now back at home and are doing well.”

Charles and Daisy married in October 2009, and have been living in Berkeley where Daisy has developed her own Professional Equestrian Event Yard.
Daisy had a very successful year in 2010, claiming 3rd place on Spring Along at the Mistubishi Badminton Horse Trials in April. Also on Spring Along in August, she took the British Open Eventing Title at Gatcombe Park, which was her last competition before taking maternity leave.
Charles’ parents John & Gina Berkeley are delighted with Mary’s arrival, and are looking forward to taking her around the Castle once all the re-wiring and re-plumbing works have been completed. Mary is their third grandchild, as their other son, Henry and wife Kate already have two children, Violet (2½) and Wilfred (10months).
