But when she entered the bedroom which the baby shared with her five-year-old sister Dior, she found her underneath the large, 3ft-tall teddy and no longer breathing.

UK Weather: Brits swelter on hottest April day since 1949

Britain is enjoying sizzling temperatures as high as 84F (28.9C) today – almost making it the hottest April day in nearly 70 years and as hot as Dubai. The South East of England will enjoy the hottest of the weather (top right), while most parts of England and Wales will bask in temperatures at least in the low 20s, the Met Office confirmed. There is a possibility than Northern Ireland will hit temperature of 66F (19C) while Scotland could hit 68F (20C). The temperatures far exceed the average for this time of the year, which is 53F (11.4C). The only time Britain was hotter in April was in Camden Square, London (pictured inset) in 1949, when the mercury reached 85F (29.4C). Meteorologist Alex Burkill said: 'There's a fairly good chance of 28C, there's about a 60% chance. A young woman is pictured sunbathing in her bikini on Bournemouth beach (bottom right).

Queen anoints Charles as she tells world leaders that it is her 'sincere wish' for her son to become the next head of the Commonwealth in symbolic moment during lavish Buckingham Palace reception  

The Queen has told foreign dignitaries of her 'sincere wish' that they pick Prince Charles to take over as leader of the Commonwealth during a large summit at Buckingham Palace. Her majesty and heir to the throne (shown together, left) have welcomed heads of states to the palace for the formal opening of the two-day Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. Addressing the assembled dignitaries inside the palace's ballroom, the Queen, who turns 92 on Saturday, said she hoped her son would be able to 'carry on the important work started by my father in 1949'. The position is not hereditary, but Prince Charles, who is also the heir to the thrones of 16 Commonwealth nations, is expected to get the nod, despite some unease among ardent republicans. Today's spectacle of pomp and pageantry was staged to welcome guests, with a guard of honour and flag bearers displaying the flags of the Commonwealth's 53 member states outside the palace grounds (shown inset, Prince Harry watches on as his grandmother makes a speech).

Janet Street Porter: Why should Prince Charles replace The Queen?

JANET STREET-PORTER: In 2018, the Commonwealth can't re-inforce the stereotype of a Regal head, someone who dishes out patronage and attends meaningless ceremonies and military events all over the world. The Commonwealth includes countries who still enforce the death penalty, who are not receptive to gay rights and who don't think women should be allowed abortions. Navigating all that and pushing for change requires diplomacy, tact, and people skills- something which the Queen possesses in spades. To succeed her, a career politician or a charismatic leader is required. The only downside? They might not own palaces, sycophantic staff or be able to afford champagne and swanky canapes. Is Prince Charles (shown left, on tour in Australia) truly the best candidate? He rarely looks at ease in these situations, his life has been spent waiting on the sidelines, being indulged and spoilt, and his relationship with his children has only recently improved.
