Prince William given dolls for daughter
Britain’s Duke of Cambridge was given two dolls for his daughter and wife during his visit to Birmingham this week.
The 33-year-old royal was delighted when businessmen Satnam Sagoo and his brother Pally handed him the custom-made figurines to give to seven-month-old Charlotte and his spouse Duchess Catherine on Monday (07.12.15).
Satnam told PEOPLE: “William was made up, he absolutely loved them. He loved the dolls and loved the furniture.”
The dolls, which cost $125 each, are from the Welsh company Bonnie & Pearl and were gifted to him by Satnam because his business made the accompanying wardrobe.
The 19″ dolls – one with blue eyes and one with brown – have been appropriately named Charlotte and Catherine and can be bought directly from Bonnie & Pearls’ website.
And, although Charlotte will be unable to play with her doll just yet due to her age, Nicola Evans, managing director of Bonnie & Pearl, is thrilled it’ll be part of her bedroom decor.
She explained with a smile: “The fact that it will be sitting on her shelves in her bedroom and that she will get some enjoyment out of them is really special.”
Meanwhile, William seemed to thoroughly enjoy his visit to the west Midlands earlier this week as he stopped by the Saltley Academy to meet young people involved in the Football For Peace project and attend the tournament.
He also called into Bournville College to learn about the anti-bullying work of The Diana Award – named after his late mother Princess Diana – and take part in activities that highlight equality.
And, before heading home, William stopped at the homelessness charity St Basil’s.
