Beautiful British products fit for a royal baby

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s firstborn has arrived, and we think that Kate has given up her public duties to get stuck into buying the clothes and accessories the royal babe will be needing during its first year or two.

We’ve rather helpfully put together some ideas on the kind of thing that Kate and William might like to buy, all from British suppliers of course. And anything that’s fit for a royal baby is certainly fit for the rest of us!

Charity clothes

A large proportion of the the Royal Family’s time is spent supporting their various charities, and we’ve found a company who donate all the profits on sales of their baby wear to orphaned and abandoned children’s charities worldwide. From Babies with Love stock soft organic baby gros, t-shirts, dresses, trousers and very cute hats, supplied by the likes of funky baby clothes suppliers Red Urchin (London-based) and Frugi (Cornwall).

Unisex clothes

William and Kate apparently don’t know the sex of their baby yet, so they may appreciate a brand like Tootsa MacGinty who specialise in mainly unisex clothing (apart from a few dresses). Anyone fed up with the vast oceans of pink and blue baby outfits in the shops will be very relieved about that. They’re stocked by the likes of John Lewis and UK online store The Little Legs Company

Classic pram

Silver Cross produced one of the world’s most exclusive prams this year in association with British motor manufacturer Aston Martin. It cost £2,000 and the leather and suede used were the same quality materials used in its cars. The pram even has “air-ride” suspension and wheels based on the Aston Martin One-77. We don’t think the royal couple need anything as luxurious, though.

The Balmoral pram is Silver Cross’s most famous product and was even used to wheel around the very young Lady Diana. It’s a classic baby carriage designed in 1877 and each one is hand-crafted in Yorkshire. Prams of this quality are of course expensive (John Lewis sells them for £1450 each) but Silver Cross also produces a range of less expensive classic and modern “travel systems”.

Christening gown

Little Doves is owned by Lincolnshire designer Linda Patrick, where she creates a range of bespoke gowns in her rural studio. Her outfits have featured on US and UK TV, Vogue, and she has been tasked with renovating christening outfits for the aristocracy as well as creating reproductions of original outfits. Linda can produce classic, Victorian, Christian Orthodox, cathedral-inspired gowns and even rompers and tartan shawls for her Scottish collection.

Baby toys

Kent-based online store The Organic Toy Company specialises unsurprisingly in organic toys, which should keep the royal baby’s grandfather happy. Garden-themed squidgy soft toy collections that feature items like the Sneeky Snake rattle and a Butterfly-in-a-bag. All products are made from organic materials and only natural pigmentation and dying is allowed - no harsh chemicals come anywhere near the products they sell.

We’re hoping that’s given William and Kate something to think about and congratulate them on the birth of their first child.
