The entire country waited with bated breath this week as Kate Middleton went into labour. To celebrate the arrival of the new royal baby, we decided to throw a little baby shower of our own.
Red With Envy
Red’s really having a royal moment after the Duchess of Cambridge wore this flattering red and white number with a lace Peter Pan collar to show off baby number three to the world. The simple and elegant three quarter sleeve dress is a custom Jenny Packham, the same designer Kate wore after the birth of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Here’s how to get the look.
This Rangat Peter Pan mini-dress by MAJE is like a shorter, sexier version of Kate’s baby reveal dress.
Channel your inner Earth Mother in this floaty, Seventies-inspired chiffon dress in the same bold shade of red.
Wow everyone at the christening with this adorable pink mini by Claudie Pierlot.
And if you’re finding that collar cute as a button but want something a little more casual, then you can incorporate the Peter Pan look into your day-to-day wardrobe with this floral embroidered Claudie Pierlot blouse.
If you want to dazzle like a princess, then you too can wear one of these Jenny Packham pieces and be the bell of any ball.
Push Gifts For A Princess
The baby will be getting plenty of attention, but what about the new mum? Push gifts are a relatively new tradition, and a way for the dad to show his partner just how much she means to him.
It’s been nine long months, now you can finally celebrate your new arrival with a drink! This 9ct gold swizzle stick will ensure your champagne never goes flat.

Baby Gifts Fit For A Prince
Forget baby-grows and teddy bears!
Less “here comes the aeroplane” and more “welcome aboard your private jet, your majesty.” The royal baby might have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but this antique gold baby spoon with mother of pearl handle is next level. It even comes with a matching ‘food pusher’ — because apparently using a spoon to scoop food is bad baby-feeding etiquette. Who knew?
For when the little one is getting fussy and no ordinary teething rattle will do, why not try this silver and coral piece from the 1800s?
