Princess Charlotte will have many honours in her lifetime but nothing will sizzle quite as much as a new sausage to mark her birth.

Gaywood’s Bowers Butchers is now selling a Cambridge Sausage to celebrate the birth of the Princess, who has arrived in West Norfolk with her parents and big brother.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have left Kensington Palace for the quiet of their country retreat, Anmer Hall, to spend important family time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who was born on Saturday.

Butcher Richard Bowers and his team have taken the traditional Cambridge sausage recipe and given it a modern twist.

Mr Bowers said: “We wanted to celebrate the birth of the Princess.

“I know about different varieties of sausage and there is a Royal Cambridge recipe. In fact 2,500lbs of Royal Cambridge sausages went down with the Titantic.

“So we thought why not go for a Cambridge sausage.”

Mr Bowers says this sausage is gluten free and contains spices which would not normally be used.

He said: “We think it is great news and it is nice they have a little girl to make a pigeon pair.”

Excited pupils from the Howard Junior School in Lynn returned from the Bank Holiday full of questions about Princess Charlotte.

Staff at the school arranged for youngsters to have their picture taken with a cardboard cut-out of William and Kate holding the new Princess.

Headteacher Greg Hill said: “Our pupils are delighted the Prince and Princess will spend their childhood in Norfolk, just like they are.”

Yvonne Browne, chairman of Sandringham Women’s Institute said: “We are delighted with the new of the royal birth.”

The Duke and Duchess have now formally registered the birth of Princess Charlotte.

The couple were seen driving away from Kensington Palace earlier this week.

Photographers and film crews from across the world have descended on Anmer hoping to catch a glimpse.

Prince William is now on leave from training with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Charlotte is expected to be christened in the Chapel Royal, at St James’ Palace – and may not make a public appearance until then.

Hugh van Cutsem along with William’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Eugenie and Peter Phillips are the bookies’ favourites for godparents.
