A message from The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall on the birth of The Prince's first grandchild

Published on 22nd July 2013

The Prince of Wales said this evening:

“Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild.  It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy. 

Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.”
