Official commemorative souvenirs marking the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby son have gone on sale.
Featuring a lion cub and unicorn inspired by the Royal Arms, the Royal Collection china is decorated with gold ribbons, silver pompoms and a coronet-inspired pattern.
The pieces bear the words “Welcome to our new royal baby”, and display William and Kate’s coronet.
The duke and duchess’s baby son - their third child - arrived on Monday, weighing 8lb 7oz, and the prince of Cambridge made his public debut on the steps of the Lindo Wing, wrapped in a white blanket.
The official range includes a pillbox costing £35, a tankard for £39 and a plate priced at £49.
Each item in the range is gilded with 22-carat gold and made in Stoke-on-Trent using traditional methods.
There is also a pram-shaped woven decoration, made with glistening threads, delicate pearl detail, and embroidered on the back with “Royal Baby 2018”, for £14.95.
The official commemorative range is available at Royal Collection Trust shops and online at www.royalcollection.org.uk/shop
