Prince William and the Duchess of Kent’s new baby boy will certainly have a royal existence. Whether or not he will have a silver spuni (the new ergonomically designed spoon) he will certainly have the best of everything.
But your child, too, can live like a future king or queen. Here are some of the top picks for a royal child.
Since you won’t be living in Kensington Palace in London, you will need a premiere place to stay. The Royal Suite at the New York Palace Hotel has super deluxe accommodations, with all the silk, marble and gold leaf a regal baby requires.
Lyss Stern, founder of DivaLysscious Moms says the royal baby must have a soft cashmere blanket to travel with. Her favorites are the Hermes Baby Blanket and the Ralph Lauren cable cashmere baby blanket.
For more cuddling, Jessica Hartshorn, Senior Lifestyle Editor at Parents and American Baby magazine says a royal baby needs a really luxe and expensive lovey. She recommends Suri Cruise’s fave: (since she’s close to royalty here in the US) the incredibly soft Little Giraffe Blanky. Remember, even monarchs can feel insecure.
Keeping the Baby Well Fed
Once your royal baby is eating solid food, no mass-produced baby food will do. Ella’s Kitchen (started in the UK) and HappyBaby make premium organic pureed baby food.
Keeping that Skin Pure
Slather on the California Baby sunscreen; the chemical free, all natural sunscreen is about $6.75/ounce, about the same price as 16 ounces of NO-AD sunscreen.
Lugging it All Around
On your baby’s travels, you will want to tote his stuff in luggage befitting a prince. Zero Halliburton has lightweight high tech suitcases with 360-degree swiveling wheels and a reinforced shell. It comes in a variety of colors, including a royal purple and silver.
Liz Gumbinner, the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, of Cool Mom Picks, knows exactly what the royal baby needs. “A pony. Isn’t it obvious?,” she said.
Nicole Feliciano, the editor and founder of Momtrends, recommends the chic Stokke Xplory. And if you plan to live in a historic area, or travel to one, she notes that the stroller is “perfect for cobblestone roads.”
Beth Feldman, founder of Role Mommy, had the best idea for the royal baby yet. “Forget the baby — he won’t remember being placed in a solid gold bassinet or being wheeled around in a $30,000 stroller. Instead, Prince William should buy Kate the biggest diamond push present known to mankind.”
