Tony Appleton truly earned the title ‘The Royal Crier’ when he made history by proclaiming the birth of Prince George to the world on the steps of the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington.
He took the world’s media by surprise by making the announcement at a time when most of the media assembled outside had no idea that the Royal baby had been born and most thought he had been sent by the Queen to tell the world!!
Tony appeared on TV stations, radio stations and in press the world over as he announced the below: –
“On this day the 22 of July in the year 2013, we welcome … a future king.
The first born of their royal highness the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
The Third in line to the throne.
May he be long-lived, happy and glorious and one day reign over us.
God Save the Queen.”
