As the world eagerly awaits the arrival of the new Prince or Princess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Prince William have received yet another special gift for the Royal baby, this time from animal rights association PETA UK.
The faux-sheepskin blanket was sent alongside a gift basket that included vegan caviar and cruelty-free faux gras. PETA UK Associate Director Mimi Bekhechi revealed: "Babies love animals, and a baby blanket that no animal was harmed to make is a wonderfully positive way to start what we hope will be a lifetime of compassion for the little one.
“We hope PETA U.K.'s gift to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will inspire other parents to buy cruelty-free gifts and clothing for their children," Bekhechi added.
Kate Middleton is due to give birth to the Royal baby this weekend in the private Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, the very same hospital that Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William in 31 years ago.
As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare to become parents for the first time they will inevitably be inundated with gifts from around the Globe, already receiving presents from Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in the form of some Plum baby food from the organic Rhug Estate after their trip to Wales, alongside a hamper of clothing and accessories from the Finnish government.
