If we know anything about the royal baby, it’s this: That little one will see no shortage of clothes, toys and other goods fit for a king (or queen, of course!).
So what’s in store for the eventual heir to the throne? Here are six shops where Middleton, 31, has been stocking up in preparation for her new addition.
Looks like the royal baby will inherit Mom’s style sensibility. The exclusive childrenswear store, situated in the heart of Chelsea on Middleton’s favorite shopping street, Kings Road, also offers a hairdressing service in which first trims are rewarded with a certificate for bravery. “Kate has been in here several times,” a shop assistant tells PEOPLE, noting that her visits were pre-pregnancy and likely for gifts. “She always bought clothes when she came in.”
She’s a regular! The Duchess has stopped by her favorite department store on Sloane Square several times, including a recent trip in which she eyed a beige stroller, rocking chairs and car seats. “She was just like any pregnant lady preparing for a baby,” a shop owner told PEOPLE in May.
When her little one is sleeping like a baby, the Duchess can thank this chic furniture shop. Among her purchases last month at the boutique: a wicker crib, owner Iza Minkiewicz tells PEOPLE. “She was so nice,” she says. “It was completely unexpected.” And the soon-to-be mama took a very special companion along for the shopping trip: her own mom, Carole Middleton, who “acted as a trusted advisor.”
