Henley shops mark birth of Prince George

THE royal baby?s birth has been celebrated in the window displays of several Henley shops.

THE royal baby?s birth has been celebrated in the window displays of several Henley shops.

Steph Herbert, a volunteer for Cancer Research, started collecting baby clothes for boys and girls about three months ahead of the arrival of Prince George of Cambridge on Monday.

?It?s a unique event and it is always nice to celebrate when a baby is born,? she said. ?It cheers people up and if we didn?t have these sort of occasions to look forward to life would be pretty dull.?

The display in the charity shop, in Duke Street, includes a rocking crib, cuddly toys, booties and books, as well as a blue balloon bearing the message: ?It?s a boy?.

Ms Herbert said: ?A lot of people have been looking in the window and a couple have come inside and said how pretty it looks.?

Elsewhere, an ?It?s a boy? card has been placed alongside a babygro with the message ?Lock up your daughters? in the window of St Audrey, also in Duke Street.

Joules, in Market Place, is selling a ?Hare to the throne? babygro with an image of a hare on it while Temptation Gifts, in Bell Street, has a selection of royal baby-related products, including an HRH breakfast set and tea towel.
