HC Deb 06 August 1844 vol 76 c1846
Sir R. Peel

said, Sir, I am about to introduce a Motion of which I have not given notice, but I am convinced I shall be acting in accordance with the unanimous feeling of this House if I avail myself of the earliest opportunity of proposing that we should offer to Her Majesty our cordial congratulations on the happy event which has taken place this day. I am sure that there will be one feeling of universal satisfaction throughout this country that an addition has taken place to Her Majesty's family, and thus there is an increased guarantee that the Throne of these realms will long continue to be enjoyed by the direct descendants of Her Majesty. Every increase of domestic happiness to Her Majesty, will, I am sure, be a cause of grateful satisfaction to Her faithful Commons. And I, therefore, beg to move at once, that this House do present an Address to Her Majesty, expressing the sentiments which I have uttered.

Lord M. Hill

seconded the Motion.

It was accordingly resolved, nemine contradicente:That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, to offer the Congratulations of this House to Her Majesty on the birth of another Prince; and to assure Her Majesty, that every increase of Her illustrious Family, and every addition to Her Majesty's domestic happiness, afford the most unfeigned joy and satisfaction to Her faithful Commons.
