THE ROYAL RAYS
SEA LIFE LOCH LOMOND NAMES FAMILY OF RAYS AFTER THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE AND THEIR CHILDREN

SEA LIFE Loch Lomond has named a family of five, fun-loving rays after their Royal Highnesses Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children, in celebration of the couple’s 10-year anniversary on 29th April.
With the royal couple famously meeting for the first time and starting their romance at St. Andrews University in Scotland, SEA LIFE Loch Lomond wanted to pay tribute to the happy couple in the country where they fell in love.
The family of rays are well-known at the aquarium for being positive, popular and playful creatures who always have a smile on their face, just like the Cambridge clan, so they are a perfect fit to carry the honorary titles.
The newly royally appointed parents have been named William and Kate, with their three baby rays taking the Cambridge children’s names – George, Charlotte and Louis.
Rays are amongst the ocean’s strongest swimmers – which seems fitting for the Cambridge family who are known for their athleticism in the water, with Prince William himself telling guests at an investiture that he and Kate worked hard to make sure they have a ‘family of swimmers.’
While the royal rays remain behind closed doors at the moment, due to the indoor site being close under lockdown restrictions, visitors will be able to have an audience with the ray royal family amongst other sea creatures when the centre opens on April 26th.
Kathryn Angel, SEA LIFE Loch Lomond’s General Manager said: “We’re thrilled to be able to pay tribute to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in true SEA LIFE fashion, with the newly crowned family of regal rays. They can’t wait to meet the public and flash their royal smiles once the site reopens soon.
“We’ve worked hard throughout the lockdown to ensure all our residents receive the same high level of care they have all year round; we’ve also carefully considered and implemented social distancing and other safety measures throughout the site to ensure we can offer a safe environment for all of the family during their visit.”
To ensure the safety of visitors and the site team, social distancing measures will be imposed including online bookings for specific visiting slots, temperature checks on arrival, extensive and additional cleaning operations and other social distancing measures.
Visit the SEA LIFE Loch Lomond website for more information on booking your visit, the health and safety measures in place for when the site opens back up to the public on 26th April.
