As the Royal Baby’s arrival draws closer, celebrations are planned for across the world to mark the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first child.
London’s Heathrow Airport have announced plans to honour the occasion by giving passengers, who arrive after the announcement, gift boxes and T-shirts.
The celebratory gifts will be given to the first 1,000 passengers who arrive to each of Heathrow’s terminals after it has been announced Kate has given birth. The gift box will include British goods including shortbread biscuits and Twinings tea.
Heathrow’s gift idea comes just days after Royal Mint revealed they plan to give babies born on the same day as the Royal Baby a commemorative coin.
As the world awaits the arrival of the newborn, celebrations have been planned across the world. In London, a 41-gun salute will mark the baby’s arrival while, across the pond in Canada, the CN Tower and Niagara Falls will light up pink or blue when the sex of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first child is announced.
Earlier this week, Prince William’s cousin, Peter Phillips expressed his excitement for the couple.
“First and foremost, everyone is ecstatic for them both,” Peter revealed, speaking to CNN’s royal correspondent Max Foster.
“They will make great parents and it’s great to be able to welcome another child into the family, if not from a selfish perspective for my two girls to be able to grow up with a playmate,” he added.
