LONDON.- To mark the momentous the birth of HRH Prince of Cambridge, the Museum of London opened a new small display celebrating royal babies past and present.

A Royal Arrival delves deep into the Museum of London’s collection to showcase baby clothes and memorabilia worn by former royal babies, from Charles I to George III and Edward VII to link the latest royal arrival to over 400 years of UK history.

Objects on show include a delicately embroidered skullcap worn by an infant Charles I. Other pieces include a tiny linen vest embroidered with a crown and a small lace mitten belonging to George III. A nursing robe thought to have been used by Queen Victoria, shoes worn by her many children and a dress blazoned with the three feather insignia belonging to her eldest son, Prince Albert Edward (later Edward VII) also are on show.

Timothy Long, exhibition curator says: “Only just arrived, and HRH Prince of Cambridge has captured the world’s imagination already. Third in line to the throne this newborn baby will eventually go on to rule the UK and Commonwealth realms.

“Our archive at the Museum of London is rich with objects related to the royal family, tracing back centuries. From garments worn by the new baby’s Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandmother, Queen Victoria, to souvenirs commemorating the Coronation of Great Grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. Through exploring these objects belonging to former royal babies, we are not only able to bring to life a very personal family story, yet we are also able to connect the newest generation of the royal family to over 400 years of UK history.”
