The Royal Baby

The Royal Baby

A new Prince or a new Princess?

Royal BabyOnly recently have we seen pictures emerging of the blooming Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge), with bump on show, as the warmer weather encouraged her to shed her statement coat, designer clutch and scarf, all of which have up to now largely hidden the royal bump, in favour of a fitted silk shift dress to show off her new curves. In the picture above, Kate's 6 month bump is dressed in Erdem's silk Sophia Viscount-Bloom shift dress costing £1,065 - more than most of us will pay for a cot or even our entire nursery ensemble!

No doubt the Queen's great grandchild will live a charmed and privileged life bursting with potential and opportunity, laced with grace and favour and, of course, we hope, health and happiness too.

We all want to give our children the best start in life and lavishing our time, love and attention on them costs nothing but, few of us have the luxury of a right royal budget to lavish on our new borns and little ones.

We can only imagine what the royal nursery is going to look like! And... only speculate whether it will be fit for a Prince or a Princess?

So, if you're expecting the arrival of your own little Prince or Princess this summer and you want to treat them like royalty, without it costing a mint, we've got a fabulous new nursery fabric collection called Forrest Friends; many more children's fabrics and new ranges of babies and children's bedding and fun and funky rugs and coordinating home wares too, so take a look.

Proud to be British

A Right Royal Celebration

Never is the nation more excited, united and patriotic, than with the announcement of a royal wedding or the arrival of a royal baby;

it’s one of those occasions when we’ll all remember where we were and what we were doing when it was announced.

Last year was a year for patriotism with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and our hugely successful hosting of, and performance in, the Olympic Games. Very soon we’ll be breaking out the flags and bunting again though, to herald the arrival of our new young royal.

Now any parent will tell you, that the birth of any baby is special enough, but this one is 3rd in line to our throne and so is bound to cause a stir, if not more rapturous flag waving, when the royal stalk finally decides to descend on Kensington Palace to deliver a new generation monarch into the ever changing face of the Royal Family!

So if you feel like getting all patriotic, breaking out the bunting again and celebrating in a way that only we Brits can, then have a quick browse through our ‘Proud to be British’ range, along with some tips and ideas on how to help give your celebrations a right royal, British theme.


Proud to be British - First Class Celebrations

Be a right royal mum this summer – or should I say maam? Take inspiration from our inviting lifestyle shot and plan ahead to host a patriotic street style party or just break out the best china and stage traditional English high-tea for the family, to celebrate the arrival of the little royal.

Putting celebrations, royal or otherwise, aside for a second though, this patriotic collection is stylish and colourful and offers versatile potential for interior decorating. The initial concept behind these designs was to help the nation to celebrate by decorating their homes, street parties and even sporting venues with a distinctly patriotic theme, but these colourful prints on 100% cotton which are suitable for curtains, cushions, table linen, kitchen accessories, bags and flags; carry a truly nostalgic feel which takes its inspiration more from our country and its capitol city as a whole, rather than any royal or sporting event and this gives the designs longevity and iconic familiarity.
