SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong congratulated Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate on the birth of their second child, a daughter, on Saturday.
He said in a Facebook post on Sunday morning that Britain's newest princess, born on the 50th anniversary of Singapore's independence, will receive a special birthday surprise from President Tony Tan Keng Yam - an SG50 Baby Jubilee Gift.
"Remember warmly their visit to us in 2012. Happy that they have an SG50 baby!" Mr Lee said in his post.
The newborn baby was welcomed into the outside world on Saturday as Prince William and Kate emerged from the Lindo Wing doors at St Mary's Hospital in London.
This is the second child for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who have a one-year-old son, George.
The Baby Jubilee Gift includes a special medallion, a multi-functional shawl, a baby sling, a set of baby clothes, a diaper bag, a scrapbook, a family photo frame and a set of baby books.
