The last time there was this much fuss over a baby, a star was seen shining in the East and three wise men brought gold, frankincense and myrrh as gifts for the happy couple.
Fast-forward 2,013 years and no doubt three men in the shape of Ed Miliband, David Cameron and Nick Clegg (less wise than the original triumvirate) will be heading to see Wills ‘n’ Kate to offer their platitudes and shower the baby with gifts.
Of course, being hip, modern, down-with-the-kids types, they’ll no doubt be looking to offer some more relevant, 21st century gifts. As such, the V3 team, in their usual can-do, always-happy-to-help manner, have come up with a great seletion of potential gifts fit for a king.
10. A 3D printer
3D printing may only be in its infancy at the moment (pun intended) but over the years there’s no doubt it will mature and become a standard technology, and for any future king it could be the ideal piece of kit to have lying around your palaces.
Not only will it be fun to play with when growing up, printing off little plastic crowns and servants, but in the future, when wishing to avoid the glare of the paparazzi when one pops to B&Q, the king can just kick the trusty ol’ 3D printer into life.
So, instead of having to queue with all the other regular Joes, he can just print the parts and pieces he needs. Maplin will be selling one for £700 – perfect for any hard-up friends of the new parents who want to make a splash, without splashing out.
