Previously this data was rated C: David Fisher quotes Andre Barbault. Penfield Collection quotes Sabian Symbols No.25 (no time given) for same.

In July 2015, Eduardo Castellanos reports on the forum: according to the birth record the birth time is 22:15 (not 22:30): "... The Queen felt unwell after noon, with the first announcements of the approaching birth, which began shortly after five in the afternoon, from which time, until the quarter past ten p.m. when the safe delivery was verified, giving His Majesty born a strong Prince, it did not occur any problem ".
