One of Suffolk’s most high profile charities has expressed its delight at the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby boy.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) said Kate will make a “wonderful mum”.
The Duchess of Cambridge became Royal Patron of EACH in January 2012 and has been an active supporter ever since – raising awareness of the charity’s services, boosting its public profile and inspiring people to raise funds.
Graham Butland, chief executive of EACH, said: “We would like to sincerely congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their son. We are delighted by the fantastic news.
“Her Royal Highness has shown great dedication to the role of EACH Royal Patron from the very beginning in January 2012, right throughout the pregnancy, and we are incredibly grateful for all the support the charity has received.
“This includes Her Royal Highness’s attendance at the official naming of new cruise liner ‘Royal Princess’ while being heavily pregnant. The event took place in June and raised funds for EACH. It was also attended by a bereaved family who benefited from EACH care and support.”
