Julia Wang, features director for PEOPLE.com, has been tracking the soon-to-be parent’s moves leading up to the birth, and has spoken to some of the top U.K. boutiques to discover what’s hot with London parents and might appear in a Royal nursery.
The baby industry in general is also expected to see an additional $400 million in sales as a result of the royal baby’s birth, according to Mama's & Papa's baby brand in Great Britain.
1. Stokke Bounce ‘n’ Sleep
This bouncer and carrier is made by a Swedish company and would be easily portable for the Royal couple, says Wang.
“For any sort of multi-tasking parent, this allows you to have your baby close to you to take from room-to-room,” Wang says. “Prince William and Kate live in Kensington Palace, and it’s huge—imagine trying to get from room to room.”
2. Burberry Baby Suit
It’s no secret that Kate Middleton is a style-setter, and Wang says it’s only fitting her baby will be, too.
“Everyone follows Kate’s style so much, so this Burberry Nova baby set is adorable,” she says. “It’s a traditional British brand, and she is known to promote and wear British brands like Reiss, TopShop and McQueen. The great thing is it’s gender neutral for a little prince or princess.”
3. Urvo Stroller
While there have been rumors that Kate purchased a more expensive Bugaboo stroller, Wang says this model would be a perfect choice.
“It’s more of a compact stroller; for a lot of new parents, you wind up using more than one stroller anyway,” Wang says. “It’s more suited for a city like London, and is perfect for taking a stroll in Kensington Palace because it’s so lightweight.”
4. Gulliver Rocking Horse
Prince William had a rocking horse growing, so it’s only fitting his child would have one as well, says Wang.
“It would carry on a royal tradition. This is more modern—it has wheels so you can rock on it and push as well,” she says. “It’s a traditional gift for British children.”
5. Feeding Cup Set
Another British tradition is a feeding cup set, which can be monogrammed and kept as a keepsake, says Wang.
