Any day now, Kate Middleton is expected to give birth to baby royalty. The Duchess of Cambridge is rumored to be due this week with her first child with husband Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, and the media is already camped out outside a London hospital. In case the royal baby bump has inspired you from across the pond, here are some options to outfit your little one. Next stop? Teaching toddler words with a British accent.

Adorn your kiddo with the “An Heir is Born” onesie from Magnificent Baby, which comes with time-saving magnetic fasteners. This onesie is covered with crowns, prams, trumpets and flags. Actors Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s youngest, Samuel, recently rocked one, according to the company.

British hair care brand Philip Kingsley has created a shampoo specifically for infants and young children. The company’s clientele includes catering to royalty, so they promise their products will treat your son or daughter like a future king or queen. The shampoo includes chamomile to soothe little ones’ scalps and amaranth protein to moisturize delicate skin and hair.

Pair the shampoo with bathing and moisturizing creams from Noodle & Boo, created on this side of the Atlantic but promising the same luxe-like treatment for future princes and princesses. Their Super Soft Lotion includes almond oil and Vitamins E and C to add moisture to tender newborns’ skin.
