In 2013, the Museum of London featured “A Royal Arrival”, an exhibition of royal baby memorabilia to celebrate the birth of the newest member of the Royal Family. The exhibition showcased some of the royal items in their collection, many of which were worn by royal babies of the past and some of whom later succeeded to the throne. Some of the highlights included shoes worn by Queen Victoria’s children, a quilted baby cap belonging to Charles I and a linen vest embroidered with a tiny crown, worn by a baby George III. Although the exhibit is over, the video below will show some of the treasured items worn by the children of Queen Victoria.
