St James’s Palace has today made the announcement that William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are expecting their first child. Here at Chiggs we are absolutely delighted at the news- we love this royal couple, and since celebrating the Royal Wedding with an enormously enjoyable street party, have been looking forward to news of a royal baby! In fact, I had my very own Mystic Meg moment when I speculated wildly predicted with startling accuracy this very announcement when guest bogging for A Royal Baby last week.
According to the news today, Kate is not yet 12 weeks pregnant, ( the usual time for a pregnancy to be announced) but she has been suffering from acute morning sickness, and has been admitted to the King Edward VII hospital in London. We’re wishing her well- in my experience ‘morning’ sickness is woefully misnamed!
Catherine has gained a reputation for her impeccable dress sense, so we can recommend Chiggs stockist A Beautiful Mummy when she starts shopping for her maternity wardrobe! Of course when the time comes we will be dispatching the best present for new parents we can find (that would be a Baby Feed Wheel or two in the appropriate colour or colours!) in the direction of Anglesey. Chiggs- By Appointment to her Majesty the Duchess of Cambridge- now that has a real ring!
