File this gift under, it’s the thought that counts. Pippa Middleton is responsible for giving William and Kate this interesting pair of baby hands and feet cast out of solid silver as a christening gift honoring her new nephew, Prince George.
Some are calling the gift unusual gift while others are calling it plain creepy!
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister had the bespoke keepsakes made by a small London company.
To create the moulds, the three-month-old future king would have had his limbs placed in a jelly-like organic mixture made of water and a seaweed-based powder.
The process takes only 30 seconds – but as any mother would testify, that’s a long time for a wriggling newborn to sit still. Whether Kate and William knew about the extravagant gift in advance is unknown.
Kate Middleton went out of her way to gush over the strange knickknack saying she thinks it’s cute, but privately sources are saying the Duchess can’t wait to closet the bogus bookends.
