Same thing happened with the crown prince of Yugoslavia:

Alexander was born in Suite 212 of Claridge's Hotel in Brook Street, 
Mayfair, London. The British Government is said to have temporarily 
ceded sovereignty over the suite in which the birth occurred to 
Yugoslavia so that the crown prince would be born on Yugoslav 
territory,[2][8] though the story may be apocryphal, as there exists no 
documentary record of this. Another part of the story says that a box of 
soil from the homeland was placed under the bed, so the Prince could be 
born on Yugoslav soil.[9]

Note that he was prince for only a few months, after that Yugoslavia was 
declared a republic.
