Lyme Regis town crier sends the resort’s best wishes to the future king

CROWDS were brought to a standstill in Lyme Regis as the town crier declared the birth of a new Prince.

Audiences gathered as Alan Vian made proclamations yesterday (Tuesday) in honour of the future King at the Guildhall steps, at Bell Cliff and the Three Cups Hotel steps.

He sent ‘loyal greetings’ from the Mayor Coun Sally Holman and the people of Lyme Regis to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s son, whose name is yet to be announced.

The proclamation read: “Be it known that on the 22nd day of July in the year of our Lord two thousand and thirteen that the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son and our future King.

“He was 8lbs 6oz and will be known as His Royal Highness the Prince of Cambridge.

“The Mayor and the people of Lyme Regis send to the new Prince their loyal greetings.

“May God bless the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and may God Save the Queen.”

A letter has also been sent to the new parents from the Mayor, on behalf of town councillors and the people of Lyme Regis.

Coun Holman has offered congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their son.

The Mayor said in letter: “May God bless them at this special time in their lives and may the birth of their baby bring them much happiness as they grow together as a family.”
