The Isle of Man Post Office congratulates the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their son HRH Prince George of Cambridge.

To mark this special occasion, Isle of Man Post issued a reprint of the Royal Wedding stamps joined by a label announcing the details of the birth.

George Alexander Louis Cambridge was born in the Lindo Wing of Queen Mary's Hospital, Paddington, at 4.24pm on 22nd July, 2013 and weighed 8lbs 6oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

Afterwards the couple posed on the steps of the hospital and chatted to the world's media, who had been waiting 22 days to snap the first pictures of the third in line to the throne.

"I'll remind him of his tardiness when he's a bit older," joked Prince William. "I know how long you've all been standing here. He's a big boy. He's quite heavy and he's got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure."

Wearing a sky blue polka dot dress, his wife added: "It's very emotional. It's such a special time. I think any parent will know what this feeling is like." She revealed that her husband had already shown that he was a modern father. "He's done his first nappy already," she said.
