The pieces bear the words "Welcome to our new royal baby", and display William and Kate's coronet.

The duke and duchess's baby son - their third child - arrived on Monday, weighing 8lb 7oz, and the prince of Cambridge made his public debut on the steps of the Lindo Wing, wrapped in a white blanket.
