Governor John Rankin has instructed the Royal Bermuda Regiment (RBR) to fire a Gun Salute and rifle volley to mark the Royal Birth of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child at 6pm this evening.
The RBR has marked Royal Births on two other occasions in recent times: July, 2013 for the birth of Prince George and May 2, 2015 for Princess Charlotte.
Members of the Public are welcome to come and witness the Salutes at Albouy’s Point to mark this happy occasion, in celebration of the Royal Birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child.
The GS will involve the firing of a single round followed by a volley from a firing party. The aim of this instruction is to detail the format for the day and the duties of those involved.
Barricades will be erected by the Corporation of Hamilton along Point Pleasant Road leading into Albouy’s Point. And police officers will be stationed to control traffic and spectators ensuring that the southeast corner of Albouy’s Point is clear of people and vehicles, both in the areas of the parking lot and dock-side.
Maritime Operations also sent notices out to marine traffic in advance of the Gun Salute, in addition media notices in advance of the GS.
