It’s a baby boy! Prince William and Kate have welcomed their newborn on Monday, April 23rd, and the little prince has made his official debut outside the Lindo Wing – looking absolutely precious!
While all babies are little princes and princesses to their parents’ eyes, your precious little one does not officially hold royal status. However, you can still assure your baby is kept in the lap of luxury with the highest quality products, fit for a royal baby, without breaking the bank.
Continue reading as we show you affordable alternatives to the baby products and accessories that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen for the royal baby and his older siblings.
The Royal Baby’s Blanket
As Prince William and Kate walked out the Lindo Wing and waved to the crowds waiting to welcome their newborn baby son, we were treated with the first glimpse of the Prince. Wearing a perfect little white ensemble, the royal baby was snuggled in a white knitted shawl, made by GH Hurt and Sons. The Nottinghamshire-based business offers a variety of shawls in multiple fabrics, costing between £36 and £112.
If you want to keep your little one as snugly and warm as the royal baby without spending as much, we suggest this Clair de Lune Blanket – made in the UK from 100% cotton, this delicate and beautiful blanket would cost you only £14.95.
Car Seat Fit for a Little Prince
As the Cambridges left St Mary’s Hospital, the royal baby was carried safely and comfortably on a Britax Römer infant carrier, which they have actually used for all three of their children, and retails for approximately £100. The Britax Römer is part of PreciousLittleOne’s offering and you can get this exact car seat on our site for £90.95. Designed for maximum portability with a lightweight shell, the softly padded side wings assure the little prince is comfortably secure.
For mummies on a budget, however, the Joie Juva Classic Car Seat shares most of the royal car seat characteristics: it is lightweight, it has side impact protection, a snug fit, and the finest materials and components. Fantastic quality does not have to cost you an arm and a leg – get the Joie Car Seat for £33.95 only!
A Royal Pram and Pushchair
We are yet to see what pram has been chosen to carry the little prince around. However, if Prince William and Kate keep the tradition, they will opt for a Silver Cross model. With a royal heritage (the Queen herself had a Silver Cross pram as a baby!), the British brand has manufactured the chosen prams for both Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
At PreciousLittleOne, we have recently received Silver Cross products. If you want the acclaimed royal pram and cannot wait while we manage the stock, email us for more details and pricing information! Be aware, however, that Silver Cross prams’ prices start at £400 and surpass £1.500.
If you are looking for a modest alternative, we suggest the iSafe Limited Edition iVogue Travel System. Suitable from birth, the carrycot can be upgraded to a luxurious seat unit and can be parent or world facing. You can get the exclusive iSafe Limited Edition iVogue Travel System for £309.95!
The nursery should be a private, comfortable and safe space for a newborn and, according to reports, Kate and William have welcomed the royal baby to a Peter Rabbit-themed nursery at a refurbished Kensington Palace. Beatrix Potter’s adorable character is said to heavily feature in the royal nursery and we adore that idea.
Add some Peter Rabbit items to your own nursery for a cute and royal touch – we love this Peter Rabbit Musical Mobile and this Peter Rabbit Activity Playmat, both for less than £30. Beautiful and practical!
Prince George and Princess Charlotte momentarily stole all the public attention when they arrived at the Lindo Wing to meet their new brother. Prince George looked as charming as ever, still in his school uniform, but the true showstopper was Charlotte’s outfit.
Charlotte was wearing a beautiful periwinkle collared dress from Little Alice London, which retails for £45. If you have a little princess of your own, you can get a similar look with the Cath Kidston Broderie Anglaise Collar Dress & Briefs – for half the price!
At PreciousLittleOne, we send our warmest congratulations and best wishes to the royal baby and family! We are now highly anticipating the official announcement of the little prince’s name – will it be Alexander, Arthur, James, Louis, or something entirely different? Let us know what you think!
