Following the birth of the Prince of Cambridge, Merton residents are invited to sign a book of congratulations to send to the royal couple.

The messages of good will will be sent to the Duke and Duchess, accompanied by a card from the Mayor of Merton.

The future king, who was born on Monday afternoon, has not yet been named, but made his first public appearance as he left hospital early yesterday evening.

“The birth of the boy is a fantastic moment for the country to celebrate, but more importantly a special and exciting time for the royal couple,” said the Mayor of Merton, Councillor Krystal Miller.

“We want to give our residents the opportunity to join in this wonderful moment in history and send their congratulations to welcome the Duke and Duchess’s son into the world.”

Speaking outside the Lindo Wing where the king was born, Prince William said that he had already changed his son’s nappy and that he ‘thankfully’ has Kate’s looks.

The family have now gone home to Kensington Palace where they will remain while William is on paternity leave.
