Not every baby is born with an official title, but all new arrivals deserve a royal welcome. From a fresh wardrobe (with all the trimmings), to cuddly companions and treasure box-worthy toys, look no further to make a good first impression with that very important baby.
As instantly recognisable as a black cab or a red bus, Rachel Riley’s hand-embroidered Beefeaters offer a subtle nod to the excitement caused by recent royal arrivals. Part of the Heritage collection, Riley designed this playsuit in response to the news that there was to be a new heir to the British throne.
It’s a breezy summer day and you’re strolling through the park, serenely pushing this hand-built Silver Cross number before you. Babysitting level: Mary Poppins.

Neatly folded inside the keepsake wicker basket, parents will find an array of treats to keep their little one happy; including super-soft knitwear, a cable-knit blanket and – of course – a Harrods teddy bear.
