With the much anticipated due date of the royal baby only a matter of days away, it comes to no surprise that designers, socialites and celebrities alike are battling out to make and buy the royal couple the most extravagant gifts to welcome the new royal baby!
One company were so determined to impress the royals that they hired celebrity designer Theo Fennell to help create the most lavish baby gift so far for the Duchess.
Theo created a jewel-encrusted, 18 ct white gold charm bracelet worth £10,000, sounds nice right? But what’s it got to do with a baby you may ask? Well the bracelet doubles as a Sudocrem nappy rash holder. Theo who has made personalised jewellery for the likes of the Beckhams, Elton John and Madonna, was commissioned by Sudocrem to produce a bespoke bracelet which reflected the Sudocrem pot. The iconic functional bracelet pot has a closable lid to which the company said it will carry the perfect amount of the glorious nappy rash cream in style!
The gift is yet to be delivered to the royal couple as Sudocrem would like to engrave the baby’s initials on to a disc charm which will sit alongside the miniature cream pot. Theo said “I am thrilled to be the maker of this miniature pot and bracelet for Sudocrem. I understand it will go to a very good home.”
Theo is greatly known for his creation of bespoke trophies and gifts for companies, charities and events such as The Italian Formula One Grand Prix, The Monacoo Formula One Grand Prix, The Man of the Match Trophy for the FA Cup Final and the Nordorff Robbins Silver Clef Awards.
Other bizarre gifts which have already been given to the Duchess include; baby hampers full of goodies from the Finnish Social Security Service Kela which contained alot of usual baby gifts and then condoms! The former Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, has handed knitted a kangaroo for the baby! And Kate’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith will get the baby Chelsea football club shares, then, when it’s older he will buy the young prince / princess a full tiny Chelsea Strip.
