A Royal thank you.

Friday, August 30th, 2013

It seemed like the whole world was watching London last month awaiting the birth of the Royal baby. Here at Chiggs HQ I was glued to the news, (and shhh- don’t tell anyone but I’ve kept all the Royal baby supplements from the newspaper, too). So when the birth of Prince George was announced on the 22nd of July we popped a blue Baby Feed Wheel in the post to Clarence House as a ‘congratulations’ and ‘well done’ ¬†to Catherine and William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Last Week we were incredibly excited when the postman delivered a letter with a Buckingham Palace postmark, and inside was a postcard with a gorgeous picture of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the steps of the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s hospital, introducing their new baby boy to the world!

On the back of the card is a printed thank you message:-

” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were most touched that you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of the birth of their son, Prince George.

Their Royal Highnesses have been overwhelmed by all the wonderful messages they have received and send you their warmest thanks and best wishes”

How lovely! I love to think that Kate may even be using her Baby Feed Wheel to keep track of baby George’s feed times ūüôā

Royal baby bump watch is a growing phenomenon

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

The Daily Mail newspaper is running ‘Bump Watch’, ‘Now’ magazine has a Royal Bumpwatch and even Harper’s Bazaar¬†is running¬†a weekly Royal Babywatch¬†– is this the shape of things to come?! With¬†fewer than three months to the mid-July arrival of the royal baby, the august institution that is the British Press have turned their collective attention to the size of Kate’s bump. Expect more and more inches to be devoted to the Duchess of Cambridge’s¬†tummy size over the coming weeks!¬†I’m sure¬†the experts will expand on the subject of the bump¬†with speculation about whether Catherine is¬†carrying to the front or all around, and¬†if this¬†means we can expect¬†a baby boy or girl to arrive in¬†the summer.

Being pregnant can be a tricky time, because obviously having a growing baby within is a personal event, but your visible¬†bump can make it a public event- people you barely know want to touch your tummy, and¬†they come out with the most bizarre and sometimes deeply unhelpful comments (in my case, at a¬†Christmas ‘do’¬†a week and a half before my due date (and just 7 days before Chiglet was actually born)¬†“good grief, haven’t you had that baby yet?” Er, no- or else I wouldn’t be standing amidst a partying group of glamorious Air Hostesses looking like a whale!).

So I can only image what it¬†must be like to live out a pregnancy in front of the full glare of the world’s media. Hang in there Kate!
