The new royal prince has been welcomed into the world by Thame leaders.

The town’s MP, John Howell, and the Mayor of Thame, Councillor Peter Lambert, have both offered their congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their first son, George Alexander Louis.

The third in line to the throne, born on Monday at 16.24pm weighing 8lbs 6oz, will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

Mr Howell said: “My congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their son.

“It has been so nice to see so many people around the world celebrating this joyous occasion with them.”

Mr Lambert, who runs the Cross Keys pub, said he found out about the birth through Twitter.

He said: “It’s nice to have a good news story in the newspapers for a change.

“I’m happy for them, it’s history in the making.”

Mr Lambert added that he hopes the royal couple and their son will one day visit the area.

As the world waited to learn the prince’s name, Oxfordshire County Council’s Registration Service revealed regal names are popular with parents who register their sons in the area. James, Harry and William were among the top 10 most popular names in the past six months, with George 11th on the list.
