The Duchess of Cambridge’s hometown of Bucklebury, Berkshire, are planning a series of celebrations to mark the royal baby’s arrival.
“We in the Duchess’s home village are quietly awaiting the Royal Birth,” Bucklebury Parish Council member Berry Dickens revealed. “When the happy event has taken place there will be some private parties.”
The council member also revealed the hometown of the future Queen plans to mark the couple’s first child with a more permanent honour.
“In the longer term we are hoping to mark the occasion with a set of wooden gates at the entrance to The Avenue in Bucklebury and the erection of an ornamental village sign,” Barry told Celebuzz.
The council member revealed the gates had been taken down in recent years but there were plans to put them up again to celebrate Prince William and Kate’s marriage and their first child.
“Now they will be put back,” Barry said. “To commemorate the marriage of the Duke and Duchess and the birth of their first child.”
The Royal couple are currently awaiting the arrival of their first child, and it is expected Kate will give birth this week.
