Activities co-ordinator Rachel Clarke said: “We had a celebration cake that was decorated by staff member Carol McGrath and everyone enjoyed reminiscing about previous royal births and royal events.

“Residents are very excited about the new prince and all our units were decorated with bunting and ‘It’s a Boy’ banners.”

Sixteen residents, along with families and staff, joined in the party. A huge sheet of paper was put up on the wall, covered with suggestions for the baby’s name.

Mrs Clarke said: “Charles was the definite favourite of residents, although members of staff prefer George. The name Albert was also popular.

“We are planning to make a card of congratulations to send to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, sending best wishes from all at Heron House.”
