Prince Charles: My wife and I are overjoyed

Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy.

Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.

Prince William's Welsh connections have prompted an outpouring of good wishes from his adopted homeland amid news of his son's birth.

As well as being nicknamed Wales by pals, the future King has lived on Anglesey since 2010 while working as a helicopter rescue pilot on the isle.

The new-born boy could one day become the Prince of Wales and we are asking whether he should be given a Welsh name.

What do you think and what name would you suggest?
