Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has congratulated Britain on the birth of daughter, a new British princess, by Prince William’s wife on Saturday.
The 8-pound, 3-ounce baby is the fourth in line to the throne.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34 a.m.,” the Kensington Palace press office said in a statement.
Netanyahu wrote British Prime Minister David Cameron, “On behalf of the Government of Israel, please accept my heartfelt congratulations on the birth of the Princess. The joy felt by the British people today is shared by millions of people around the world, including in Israel.
“Please convey my warmest wishes to Her Majesty, the proud parents and the entire Royal Family.”
