Birth of Royal Baby

July 22, 2013

Message from the Governor General on the Birth
of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Baby Son

OTTAWA—My wife, Sharon, and I would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the occasion of the birth of their son. 

Sharon and I have five wonderful daughters and ten delightful grandchildren and know well the elation that a new arrival brings to a young family. We know that this happy event brings great joy not only to Their Royal Highnesses, but to the entire nation as well.

May the years to come with this child be filled with love and pride for all members of the Royal Family.

David Johnston
