On behalf of the whole National Catholic Church of the United Kingdom and Ireland, I offer sincerest congratulations and best wishes to TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their son, to TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
I encourage all members of the Church to offer prayers of thanksgiving on the birth of our future King and I ask all clergy to offer a Mass of Thanksgiving as soon as possible and to pray the Te Deum at the end of Mass.
God save The Queen
God bless The Prince of Wales
God bless The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son.
