The birth of the royal prince is a “source of joy” for people around the world, said the president of the English and Welsh bishops’ conference.

Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster issued a statement of congratulations to Prince William and his wife Kate, the duchess of Cambridge, on the birth of their first son, who is third in line for the British throne.

“The birth of the new prince will be a source of joy not only for the royal family but for the peoples of the United Kingdom and beyond,” said Nichols.
