Prince Charles marked the birth of his third grandchild, Prince Louis, by flogging a pair of gold embroidered baby shoes on his Highgrove website.
Described as a ‘classic keepsake memento — created especially to celebrate this historic day’, they will set you back £11.95 plus a whopping £5.95 P&P. And they’re not even made by his future subjects, but ‘handcrafted by skilled master embroiderers in India’
This comes weeks after Prince Harry also gifted Prince Louis with a book worth £8,000 (Ksh1,076,798) ,the book is a 1926 first edition version of the A.A. Milne book – of which 30,000 were printed in the first run, The Sun reports.
He is understood to have made the purchase from rare book seller Peter Harrington in Kensington, London although he had initially considered buying Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass(below) priced at £24,000(Ksh 3,230,394) but decided Winnie the Pooh would be more suitable.
Prince Louis was recently christened in a private ceremony by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.
