Royal baby: It's party time as Kate's village marks the news
Residents of the village where the Duchess of Cambridge grew up said last night they were overjoyed with the news that one of their own is a future king.
John Haley, owner of the Old Boot Inn near the Duchess's parents' home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, said: "It's just amazing news. When we heard the announcement it was a boy, the place just exploded."
Mr Haley, who attended the royal wedding in 2011, added: "We are all having a massive party, it's a great atmosphere and it's all kicked off."
The Duchess's former music teacher Daniel Nicholls, who taught her piano from 11 to 14 and who still lives near Bucklebury, said: "I believe they are going to come here to the village with the child."
