Cambridge Bar Saves A Spot For the Royal Baby

Cambridge Bar Saves A Spot For the Royal Baby

The Fort St George Pub in Cambridge has saved a seat (in the form of a high chair) for the royal baby

The royal baby has his first throne, at a pub in Cambridge.

The world can breathe a sigh of relief; the new Prince of Cambridge will always have a throne at one UK pub.

A pub in the city of Cambridge has commemorated the birth of their new Prince by permanently reserving a seat, a highchair, for the Prince, according to The Drinks Business. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge dined the Fort St George pub on Midsummer Common in Cambridge in November, and when the pub’s manager John Cecchini found out the couple were expecting, he told the Press Association that the staff was elated. “When the world found out William and Kate were expecting we were thrilled, having welcomed them into the pub just a few weeks earlier,” he said.

Now, the spot where they ate features a high chair fit for the royal Prince, along with a plaque commemorating his birth, according to The Drinks Business. The table, of course, also features two seats for his royal parents. And if you were worried he’d lose his seat when he grew out of high chairs, never fear — Cecchini told the Press Association he wants to spot to grow with the Prince. “As he gets older, we will make sure the seat under the plaque grows with him. He will forever be welcome here and we very much hope the whole family will be frequent visitors,” he said.

1. Charles, Prince of Wales

Prince Charles, the heir apparent to the British throne, married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 earning her the title Diana, Princess of Wales.

Together they welcomed sons Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, in 1982 and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, in 1984.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana had a contentious relationship, complicated by affairs on both sides. Diana’s time as a royal was made worse by constant criticism of her image and actions in the press.

The couple eventually divorced in 1996: Prince Charles remarried Camilla Parker Bowels in 2005.

Princess Diana was tragically killed in a car accident in 1997. She was 36 years old.
