Royal birth is celebrated by Norfolk Christians
The Norfolk Christian community has welcomed the royal birth of Prince George of Cambridge with a message from the Bishop of Norwich and the promise of a celebratory royal dinner.
The Bishop of Norwich wrote to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to congratulate them on news of the safe arrival of their son.
“I send congratulations and the assurance of prayers not simply on my own account but on behalf of our 577 parishes and their clergy and people,” wrote Bishop Graham.
“We still recall with pleasure your first public engagement following the announcement of your marriage took place in Norfolk. We are glad that Sandringham is so well-loved by the Royal Family which adds to the special affection for you all in this part of the world. We do hope your son will come to enjoy greatly his visits here.
“May God bless you in your care and nurture of your son and give you delight in each other,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Norfolk-based pageantmaster and Christian Bruno Peek is set to organise a celebratory dinner to welcome the new prince.
Bruno has organised many royal celebrations and been decorated by the Queen three times. He is planning a formal black-tie dinner in Great Yarmouth to mark the royal birth.
“It is such an occasion for the country and the commonwealth. My card is already in the post to Kensington Palace. It is such an important event in our history,” he said.
