Congratulations: Windsor guards play Cliff Richard rendition for royal baby

The performance is one of a number of creative tributes that have been offered to the little one.

The band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland offered a musical tribute to the royal baby by playing a special rendition of Congratulations.

The royal family’s Twitter account shared a video of the British Army regiment’s brass band version of the classic from 1968, which was sung by Cliff Richard as the UK entry to Eurovision that year.

The Scots Band’s message to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which was performed at the Changing of the Guard, is one of many special congratulatory tributes that have paid after the birth of the new royal on Monday.

Outside Buckingham Palace, the Kingdom Choir – who performed at Harry and Meghan’s wedding last year – performed a new lullaby for the new arrival.

Meanwhile, a left-of-field artistic tribute sees the Meghan depicted as a saint in a painting by satirical artist Kaya Mar.

With a halo around her head, the duchess is seen holding her newborn son flanked by two donkeys.

The infant, who is seventh in line to the throne, is believed to be the first mixed-race child born to a senior member of the royal family in centuries.

Asked about a name for his son, Harry said on Monday: “Still thinking about names. The baby is a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a little bit of time to think about it.”
