Books Of Congratulation Opened Following Royal Birth

An online book of congratulations has been opened for anyone wishing to send messages to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge following the birth of their son.

Cambridgeshire County Council has opened the book following the birth of the Prince of Cambridge.

Further books have been placed in the Reception areas of Cambridge City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council for residents to leave their messages.

Anyone wishing to convey their congratulations can do so in person by calling into The Guildhall in Cambridge Market Place, Shire Hall on Castle Hill or the Town Hall in Bridge Street, Peterborough.

The online book will then be printed off, bound and sent to Kensington Palace, together with the hard copies of the congratulations books.

Messages can be left online at:http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/council/congratulations

Because the Royal birth is an event of national and international significance, messages will be moderated before they appear online.

Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire Hugh Duberly CBE said: “I would like to extend my warmest wishes and congratulations to the Duke and Duchess on the birth of their baby, the Prince of Cambridge. I am sure many people will want to join me in sending their own personal messages to the couple, and the books of congratulation which have been established across the county will enable them to do just that.”
