People in the Advertiser and Review region have welcomed the birth of the royal baby yesterday, Monday.

While businesses, including At Home in Buckingham have been getting into the spirit by dressing up their shop fronts, the MP for Buckingham and Winslow and Speaker John Bercow said he was delighted at the news.

He said: “I was delighted to hear that the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a son, and that they are all thriving.

“The arrival of a baby is a joyous event in the life of any young couple and I wish Duke and Duchess the very best for their new family.”

Lord Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher and Carl Etholen, chairman of Bucks County Council said in a joint statement: “Yesterday’s arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby and future heir to the throne is a momentous event and a time for celebration.

“The people of Buckinghamshire share the Royal Couple’s joy at his safe delivery, and wish them and their son all happiness for the future.”

Mayor of Winslow David Barry said: “We were delighted to hear the news that the duke and duchess have presented us with a baby. I think everybody’s delighted. I’m sure the people of Winslow would join with me in wishing them hearty congratulations and welcome to the world of parenthood.”

A statement from Cherwell District Council said: “On behalf of all members and staff at Cherwell District Council we would like to congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their first son.”
