Former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, took to social media to congratulate the Duke and Duchess on the birth of their child.


The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a healthy baby boy on April 23, 2018, at 11:01 am, in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington. 

As reported by Pop Sugar, Michelle is just one of many who wished the Royal couple all the best with the new addition to their family. 


She tweeted their congratulations, saying that both she and former President Obama are thrilled for the Duke and Duchess. Michelle hoped that they would meet the young Prince soon

She also added that a 'Kensington pajama party' would be in order and joked that she would wear her robe. This was a nod to the time they spent with the Royal family in 2016. 

Young Prince George, then only three years old, was wearing white pajamas, a dressing gown, and slippers when he met the Presidential couple. 

According to Daily Mail, the Obamas are very close to the members of the Royal family and gifted the young prince with a wooden rocking horse. 


The two families have worked closely together on several philanthropic projects. As recently as November 2017, Michelle and Prince Harry paid a surprise visit to a Chicago High School. 

Other celebrities who extended their congratulations and well-wishes include the actress and television presenter Michelle Heaton who referred to the Duke and Duchess as a 'fairytale couple.' 

Prime Minister Theresa May sent her 'warmest congratulations,' and wished them 'great happiness for the future,' while Canada's High Commissioner to the UK, Janice Charette, wished them 'good health and much happiness.' 

The Duchess of Cambridge extended her thanks to the medical staff for the treatment she received and also thanked 'everyone for the warm wishes.'
