Following recent Instagram posts from Harry and Meghan highlighting there past year in photos with Baby Archie we look into the outfits worn by the young royal and ask the question of whether gender neutral baby gifts are proving more popular with new parents.
Prior to this highlighted post we have seen Archie only a handful of times since his birth we have seen the young windsor donned in primarily neutral white tones from his christening to recent polo match event also attended by his cousins Prince George and Princess Charlotte further confirming both Meghan and Harry’s intentions in keeping the gender neutral theme.
Many parents are now more conscious of natural items that are versatile, sustainable and most of all of quality giving that extra durability and a clear shift away from fast fashion adopted by their younger peers.
Inspired by these trends at Willow and Cole we have curated The ‘Royal Archie’ collection which includes luxurious cashmere baby blankets, cardigans and soft toys which have been designed for new parents or as baby gift set at celebrations, christenings or baby showers following the neutral and timeless themes that compile our new baby gift collection.
Crafted in neutral shades of grey and cream, the gifts in the collection are an ideal match for the ‘Auro’ grey vegan paint used in Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s new gender-neutral nursery at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. The soft toy and blankets have also been selected as nod to some of the stunning newborn baby gifts that baby Archie received from members of the Royal Family and the British public earlier last Spring.
The ‘Royal Archie’ collection:
Willow & Cole are proud to introduce an ultra-soft cuddly toy named ‘Archie’ in celebration of the new royal. The royal Archie recently acquired several equally adorable soft toys of a similar size himself, which were gifted to him by a member of the public in Oxford via his father, Prince Harry, as well as Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.
Fit for a little monarch, this luxurious, gender neutral gift box set features a knit Salisbury baby cashmere cardigan. Woven in a light grey, the cardigan complements the colours of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s new ‘Auro’ grey gender-neutral nursery and is made from 100% Mongolian cashmere, a walnut button finish and finished in river knit design. Accompanied with a natural baby hair brush made from soft goat hair bristles with an olivewood stem, the cardigan arrives in a stylish signature gift box.
