Monday, July 22, 2013 will forever go down in history as the day that a future king, the great-great-great-great-grandchild of Queen Victoria, decided to grace the world with his presence. Cheers erupted in front of Buckingham Palace when details of the Duke and Duchess’ first child’s birth were made public. While we wait with baited breath for the name of the baby boy, who weighed in at 8 pounds and 6 ounces, we chose gifts—everything short of frankincense and myrrh—that we thought would be fit for a king. Women’s Wear Daily completely upped the ante reaching out to designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix, Nicole Miller, Kenneth Cole, and Nanette Lepore to come up with offerings for the child (not unlike the designer ideas for Kate’s maternity wear). Dior created a entire collection! “Like fairies leaning over a cradle, Baby Dior was inspired by Mr. Dior’s lucky charms to adorn the future newborn outfits,” the French fashion house told WWD.

… Not that we didn’t think for a second that the royal baby would be one stylish infant with a mother like Kate Middleton, but this just confirms it. See the complete slideshow of gifts here.
