The royal baby has arrived! It’s a son to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William. The boy, weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces, was born at 4:24 p.m. Monday, July 22, 2013. The baby will be third in line to the British throne. The baby’s official title will be His Royal Highness Prince of Cambridge. Proud parents Kate and Will stepped out to debut the little Prince to the world to the delight of hundreds of photographers. In tribute to Princess Diana who wore polka dots when debuting Prince William to the world, Kate also wore a blue polka dot custom designed dress by Jenny Packham and nude pumps sold at Dune. The Packham dress will not be available for sale to consumers. The soft merino wool baby shawl was by G.H. Hurt & Son.
The green and white bird print swaddle blanket is by Aden + Anais.
My how time flies! I still remember being young when Prince William was born and seeing the headlines. I named my own son, William, and have always loved the name. With all of the excitement surrounding the new royal addition, I have selected some of my favorite baby items, fit for the little prince. All from my retail site The Well Appointed House. I have sold to many celebrities over the years and one Duchess and these are my picks for the new royal baby!
My first pick is our elegant Angel Baby bassinet, created from yards and yards of opulent dupioni silk and tied with a sumptuous bow. The bassinet includes everything pictured and a mattress, fitted sheet and a decorative pillow $1,430 – Buy it Here:
A moses basket is always nice to have for Mum and Dad when relaxing on the couch in the evening, wanting to keep the little Prince close. I had one similar to this and used it for all three of my children. My pick for Duchess Catherine’s son is our classic moses basket with blue bow – $350, Buy it Here:
