It could pay (literally) to be born on the same day as the royal baby! Duchess Meghan welcomed her first child with husband Prince Harry on Monday, May 6, and in celebration of the baby boy’s arrival, Pure Leaf Tea is offering expectant families a chance to win some cool prizes, including a shot at some serious money.

To honor the beverage company’s own new addition – Herbal Iced Tea – and welcome Meghan and Harry’s little bundle to the world, the PepsiCo-owned brand announced it will give one lucky American family the chance to win $10,000 in cash and the opportunity to be spotlighted in their own royal tea family portrait shot by award-winning photographer Yaron Leshem.

More specifically, families with little ones also born on May 6 will have the chance to win the royal tea-inspired, grand prize (which will go towards their child’s education) and a picture-perfect photo of their little bundle of joy. Nine additional families will also be eligible for a chance to win the second-place prize of the family portrait and up to 50 families will have a an opportunity to win a $100 gift card to Shutterfly, so new parents can create regal birth announcements for their own little ones who share baby Sussex’s birthday.
