Scroll to celebrate George's birth

A scroll to celebrate the birth of Prince George has been given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by staff at the hospital where he was born.

The handwritten gift, enclosed in a leather case, is almost identical to one presented to the Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales, when William was born at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's.

Sir Richard Sykes, chairman of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, said: "Like people up and down the country, I was delighted to hear the news that the Duchess of Cambridge has had her baby boy.

"It will always be a source of great pride for the Trust and everyone who works here that the baby, like his father, was born in the Lindo Wing at St Mary's and we would like to wish him the very best of luck for the future.

"I am enormously grateful to the team at the Lindo Wing and all those members of the Trust staff, and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to ensure that the Duke and Duchess received the best possible care and that the rest of the hospital has continued to function as normal in spite of the huge public interest in this auspicious occasion."
