On the 22nd of July, 2013, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, welcomed their first child into the world.
As soon as Kate went into labour, people all over the world were awaiting the news, hoping the baby and mother were healthy and, of course, whether it was a boy or a girl. People lined the streets outside Buckingham Palace, wanting to share the day with friends and strangers alike. Finally, a little after 4 in the afternoon, a healthy 8lbs 6oz baby boy, George Alexander Louis, was born.
Everyone here at Temptation is delighted with the news and for the new parents, and will be enjoying some cake today to celebrate! If you'd like something a little more permanent than cake to commemorate the important day, we have a small but high quality selection of gifts to celebrate the royal baby.
Dunoon, the foremost makers of fine bone china mugs in the UK, have created two brand new designs to celebrate the birth. The first, in the sleek Wessex shape, is timeless and elegant. It features golden wreathes and royal blue trim, and the front reads: "To celebrate the baby of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge". The back features the baby's name and date of birth, reading: "To celebrate the birth of George Alexander Louis, 22nd July 2013".
The second design of mug is in the popular Cairngorm shape, and features charming illustrations of the royal baby's play things. There are, amongst other things, a cute yellow onesie, an adorable teddy bear with a crown, and a royal high chair and cot. "Royal Baby" is written around the inside of the rim in toy building blocks, and the front of the mug reads: "To celebrate the birth of George Alexander Louis, 22nd July 2013." Whichever mug you choose, each is a real collector's item, and something that will keep you smiling for years to come.
We also have another selection of specially made fine bone china from Milly Green. The collection is dated 2013, and has a simple and elegant royal baby theme. Rocking horses, teddy bears, royal prams and crown-carrying storks all feature in beautifully crafted designs. You can buy a plate, an egg cup, two different mugs or even the whole tableware boxed set (including bowl) that makes for the perfect breakfast set. The items work brilliantly as a gift for a child, either to use in the day to day or to keep for years to come. They are equally suitable for those of us who love the Royal Family and want something to mark the special occasion.
There is also a tea towel available to purchase from the same range, as well as another tea towel with a gorgeous design featuring the future king's name and date of birth. Both practical and commemorative, the tea towels are a great way to be reminded of the good news on a daily basis!
