The official title of William and Kate’s child, due any day now, will be the His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess of Cambridge.
Former Cambridge mayor Cllr Sheila Stuart told The Cambridge News: “It can only be good news for Cambridge. Everyone is so excited about it. The whole country is waiting for the birth.”
Cllr George Pippas, Cambridge’s deputy mayor, told the newspaper: “I am happily surprised by this incredible news. It is wonderful. We could not have wished for a greater honour. Now we are all sitting on our hands waiting for our prince or princess to arrive.”
A palace spokesman confirmed it: “The royal couple’s child will officially be known as His or Her Royal Highness the Prince or Princess of Cambridge.”
Any other children the couple have will also be known by the same title.
