The Falkland Islands Government has sent a letter of congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the safe arrival of their baby son.
Gifts will be sent on behalf of the Legislative Assembly and the people of the Falkland Islands to welcome the newest heir to the British throne. The gifts are a sheepskin naturally tanned at Hill Cove and a hand woven shawl produced in Darwin using local yarn from Swan Inlet.
The release is signed by the Legislative Assembly of the Falkland Islands
The Duke of Cambridge has spent time in the Falkland Islands deployed as a Royal Air Force (RAF) officer conducting helicopter search and rescue trainings as part of a routine mission.
Prince Williams during his six weeks deployment in February 2012 was crewing one of two search-and-rescue helicopters on call 24 hours a day for missions flying out of MPA, 45 minutes from Port Stanley, the Falklands’ capital.
