An annual street party turned into a Royal celebration as revellers marked the birth of Prince George.

The Devonshire Square Summerfest coincided with the arrival of William and Kate’s bundle of joy last week.

The news that the Duchess of Cambridge had given birth the day before celebrations were due to start lent the party a “unique atmosphere”.

Organiser Eugene O’Keeffe added: “Our community seemed to really enjoy it and that is the most important thing for us.”

And the best of British was on show as people enjoyed fresh food, live music and drink in the sun.

The party was held from July 23-25 in the Aldgate Square.
