Royal baby: PM statement

Prime Minister David Cameron gave a statement from Downing Street after the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Number 10

The Prime Minister said:

It’s wonderful news from St Mary’s Paddington, and I’m sure that right across the country, and indeed right across the Commonwealth, people will be celebrating and wishing the Royal couple well. It is an important moment in the life of our nation, and I suppose above all it is a wonderful moment for a warm and loving couple who have got a brand new baby boy.

It’s been a remarkable few years for our Royal family - the Royal Wedding captured people’s hearts, the extraordinary and magnificent Jubilee and now this Royal birth. All to a family that has given this nation so much incredible service and they can know that a proud nation is celebrating with them a very proud, happy couple tonight.
