Australia’s Governor-General, Her Excellency the Honourable Quentin Bryce, has warmly congratulated the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of a baby boy.
The royal baby was born at 4.24pm weighing 8lbs 6oz, according to the official announcement posted on a gold-coloured easel outside Buckingham Palace in London. The Prince is third in line to the throne.
“The birth of a baby is an experience to celebrate and cherish. We wish the new parents every happiness and send warm greetings of welcome to the little Prince,” the Governor-General said.
With Royal connections since our foundation in 1899, The Perth Mint echoes the Governor-General’s good wishes. We are delighted to be working on a commemorative coin which we are hopeful of releasing in the very near future.
